“Simple music is the hardest music to play and blues is simple music”. – Albert Collins
What could be the result of Dr Rubberfunk teaming up with UK’s leading blues & soul singer John Turrell. ‘Boom!‘ is the result and it’s a passionate soulful, bluesy track you should definitely check out:
… Ron Addison‘s ‘Keep Loving Me’ is a ‘fast rocking, boogie-woogie drive to get you dancing and moving‘. Hot blues rock!
Passionate soulful blues rock music by Aussie band The SunBears who ‘Set Fire to My Heart‘ with their pathos, skilled playing, warm lyrics but above all ultimate soul unaccording to the “social-media” era. Fabulous!
Joel Havea Trio hail form Tonga (a Polynesian sovereign state) and with ‘Hell to Pay‘ they unleash a fine blend of acoustic blues with tropical flavour, so we are eager for their upcoming album ‘Ki ‘a Lavaka‘ due for release on 3rd of April 2020.
Dutch blues-man Jeroen Kant is in top form with ‘Diesel‘, a mutant blues track with a heavily distorted guitar ready to beat your amplifier in this this blues rock beast!
Kyle Lacy‘s ‘Low And Slow‘ is taken from his debut LP, ‘The Road To Tomorrow‘ (out via Brooklyn-based independent label Dala Records) and is a flawless “classic rock meets blues” gem for daytripping. Unmissable!
Hi Wasted are Matt Hassler – Guitar/vocals, Benjamin Simonson – Guitar, Mitch Midkiff – Bass & Mike Jacobs – Drums, come from Seattle, Washngton, and ‘Credo‘ is a fine example off their last year EP ‘3124‘ (produced by Steve Fisk) in which heavy rock is combined with blues in a divine blend for passionate rock fans. Turn this up loud!
Epic ending with Paul Quinn (guitarist of Saxon) and his latest group The Cards who has stated the following about the band’s formation: “My lady put her cards on the table and asked my friend Harrison if he could help me get my bluesy tunes from my head to completion. I admired his multi-instrumental abilities and added my own to the mix. It was completely organic, unforced joy to write together. Harrison had done a lot of playing with Koen so we were already fans of his ‘fire’ and explosive talent as a drummer, coupled with serious laid back grooves. Then we found we were all three comedians and decided we are ‘cards,’ so therefore, we’re The Cards“. Get on the ‘Rock & Roll Rocketship‘!
‘Blues Brother’: Christos Doukakis
