A great year, despite this horrible recession
Despite this horrible recession, musically the band had a great year with the release of our second album 'The Blues Don't Scare Me'. We're proud of the fact that our live and studio sets feature 90% original music.
Since the release of the album in October 2013 we've consistently been one of the most featured bands on the air-waves in the blues genre not only in the UK but also notably in America. This has lead to us receiving a fair few nominations across the blues spectrum, including, Best electric blues album, best vocalist, best band, best Hammond-organist. 2013 also saw us have feature interviews in Blues In Britain, Blues Matters, Jazzwise, and Classic Rock's Blues Magazine and have our second airing on the Paul Jones show, this time featuring our song 'Liberated Woman'.
Naturally we're looking forward to building on this momentum we've generated. Last year we made our first appearances at Blues On The Farm, Tenby Blues Festival, Scarborough Blues Festival as well as several theatre and club dates. This year we're looking forward to making our first appearance at Skegness, Hebden Bridge and Upton blues festivals… they'll be a lot more to follow, we'll also have club dates around the UK… so we'll keep you posted.
Thanks so much to all of you who have played a part in all of this, whether it be through just listening to the music, coming to gigs, sending us messages of support and appreciation, writing reviews, booking us, or featuring us on your shows.
Here's to 2014, and good luck to all of you out there.
Rob and Zoe xx
