Level 42 are an English jazz-funk band formed on the Isle of Wight in 1979 by Mark King and brothers Phil and Rowland Gould. They had a number of UK and worldwide hits during the 1980s and 1990s and became established as concert favourites on the budding British and European jazz-funk scene.

Their highest-charting single in the UK was Lessons in Love, which reached number three on the UK Singles Chart, and number 12 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, upon its release in 1986. An earlier single, Something About You, was their most successful chart-wise in the United States, reaching number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

They enjoyed great success as a live and studio band and released a string of hit albums including Standing In The Light, The Pursuit Of Accidents and True Colours.

The band’s commercial profile diminished during the early 1990s following a series of personnel changes and they broke up in 1994, reforming in 2001.

Level 42 become the latest band to have their own station on Exclusive Radio.
