Why not invite your favourite independent musician to play for your friends family and his fans in your front room, I’ll be surprised if he/she won’t show up sometime this year and play for you, let me know about it and if The Medicine Show Radio Moose Mobile is loose is near enough we’ll come and broadcast it too. If you would like to help keep the wheels on the Hub and on The Moose become a patron at
Happy Hosting, Happy New Year - Rob Ellen
This is a duo out of New Orleans, with Tiffany a noted jazz singer (though you might not guess that from some of the tough performances here) and Eric formerly lead guitarist for Cyrille Neville of The Neville Brothers and zydeco artist Terrance Simien, and they are backed by some top-notch musicians. “Southern Gothic” is how the duo’s music has been described, a blues-rock, soul and Americana styled approach that is rooted in older traditions –the opening two numbers are akin to field hollers. Tiffany is a big-voiced vocalist, and Eric also sings, though on balance Tiffany handles the lion’s share, whilst Eric’s slide playing in particular attracts attention. The majority of the eleven songs are originals, but there are covers of The Rolling Stones’ ‘No Expectations’ (there’s a lovely country tinge to this one), ‘Do I Move You?’ which is a solid West Side Chicago flavoured blues showing off Tiffany’s sultry side and with some of Tiffany’s intonations reminding the listener that this is a Nina Simone song, a convincingly subtle and slightly jazzy rendition of Joni Mitchell’s classic ‘River’ and a lovely, soulful duet reworking of Pete Seeger’s ‘If I Had A Hammer’. One of those sets that grows on you with each play – do check it out.
