Russ Green – City Soul (Cleopatra Records)

City Soul is Russ Green’s debut album and he comes out of the traps with in your face wailing harp and slide guitar on First Thing Smokin’. This is a rocking boogie of an opener, tipping nods to Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker on the way. The pace changes for the slower, sultry Blues of Believe In Love…

Joe Bonamassa -- British Blues Explosion (Provogue)

I’ve been following Joe for a number of years now and his live performances are always scintillating, none more than this carnival of British Blues. Celebrating the music of Beck, Clapton and Page, he romps though some classics and other lesser known tracks from this era. Highlights are the Blues Rock of…

Steve Hill – The One-Man Blues Rock Band (Manhaton Records)

I’ve always thought it brave of bands to release live albums but a one-man band? No wiggle room but Hill breezes it from the Blues Rock opener, Rhythm All Over to the finale, a fine cover of Voodoo Chile (Slight Return). It’s not just Blues Rock (Dangerous and Never Is Such A Long Time), but Delta Blues…

Teresa James and the Rhythm Tramps – Here In Babylon (Jesi-Lu Records)

Houston native and LA resident James opens with I Know I Ain’t Been So Perfect; that’s questionable! The title track shows their class, no histrionics, just good music, well played.

James’ vocals are the star and the effectively excellent Rhythm Tramps back her perfectly, particularly on…

Adam James Sorensen – Dust Cloud Refrain (Continental Song City)

Produced by Jamie Mefford of Nathaniel Rateliff fame but think you’re getting a copy. Nothing could be further from the truth. No bombastic anthems here, just gentle, sometimes introspective Country and Alt-Country songs, examples being the Country sounds of Steam Train and Boxcar whereas…

Graham Robins -- Majestic Halls (33 Records)



Robins’ 5th album opens with the gentle Hall of Faith, an immediate introduction to his Gospel influenced soulful voice. He covers Blues on Indianola Mississippi, his tribute to BB King highlighting a gruff edge to his voice, Soul on Pure Soul which is one for relaxing to late at night and Night In Coleraine…

Reverend Raven & the Chain Smokin’ Altar Boys – My Life (Nevermore Records)

My Life celebrates their 20th anniversary with a selection of tracks from throughout that time.

Raven’s distinctive dulcet voice is highlighted in the mellow opener, Handyman, and the innuendo laden Big Bee. Harmonica is integral and some great players are here. Highlights are lung-bursting Jump Blues…

Laurie Morvan – Gravity (Screaming Lizard Records).

Gravity is Morvan’s 6th release and she expertly fuses Blues, R&B, Soul and Funk. From the fast R&B opener, My Moderation, to the hypnotic Too Dumb To Quit, Laurie’s soulful vocal and stinging guitar are joyful. Twice The Trouble has a vocal nod to Christine McVie and guitar influences…

The Lynnes – Heartbreak Song For The Radio

Canadian duo, Lynn Miles and Lynne Hanson have been writing and touring together on and off for the last decade but it’s taken them until now to release their debut album. Why have they waited so long? Their strong vocal harmonies and storytelling are a joy and whether they are serving up soft and…

Albert Castiglia – Up All Night (Ruf)

Veteran of 7 albums and former member of Junior Wells’ band, Castiglia’s paid his dues. From the powerful, lick laden opener Hoodoo On Me to the acoustic finish of You Got Me To That Place, he showcases a guitar style honed over the years with nods to…

The Jive Aces – Diggin’ The Roots Vol. 1 Rockin’ Rhythm & Blues (Golden Age Recordings)

The Jive Aces a tight band, no mistaking and their energy is palpable. Predominately covers, the highlights are Choo Choo Ch’Boogie and Big Joe Turner’s Feelin’ Happy. Chris Wilkinson and Cassidy Janson (the lead in the Carole King…

The Reverend Shawn Amos – Loves You (Put Together)

Amos has lived a Bluesman’s life and he has the story. Whether it’s the funky Blues of You’re Gonna Miss Me (When I Get Home) or the cautionary Hollywood Blues, it’s delivered with passion. The Blind Boys of Alabama guest on Days of Depression, making a spiritual opening. Other guests…

Alive In Theory – Abandon (Ultraviolet Records)

This debut album from the Manchester duo Alive In Theory is a potent, reflective collection of self-penned tracks. From the eponymous opening track with touches of Kate Bush to the understated but room filling The Other Side, this downbeat album is packed with quality. Marianne…

Willie & The Bandits -- Steal (Jig-Saw Music)

Talisco – Run (Roy Music).

Highly popular in Europe, Talisco releases his first album. Whether it’s the dance-tinged pop of Your Wish (used by Google) or the hook-laden The Keys (Toyota), there is something here for most.

The atmosphere is heavy on the haunting, rousing…
