Live 2014 (2015)

Recorded live as part of his farewell tour 2014! A bit different to his previous Live/Studio recordings, but has usual well worth checking out.

Layla Zoe (Canada)

Live At The Spirit 66 (2015)

Recorded live at ‘The Spirit Of 66’ festival 2014. For me this is probably Layla’s best release to date and one of the best albums of 2015.

Live Layla’s is in her element. She is also backed by an excellent band.

Go on. Buy a copy!

Lisa Biales (Pronounced Be-Alice) (USA)
http://www.lisabiales.com/
Just Like Honey (2012)
Singing in My Soul (feat. Ricky Nye & The Paris Blues Band) (2013)
Belle Of The Blues (2014)

WOW! After listening to these three releases you have to wonder why Lisa’s not better know!

Each recording is worth purchasing. Well produced with stunning vocals.

As well as solo work, Lisa also performs as a duo with EG Knight, under the name ‘Peach Pickin’ Mamas’.

NB. Francis Ford Coppola enjoyed Lisa’s music so much that he cast her in his film, “Twixt,” where Biales portrays a waitress named Ruth where she picks up the guitar and sings.

You can listen to full tracks on her website. All three albums along with others can be heard/purchased here:

Pete Harris Band (UK)
http://www.peteharrisblues.com/
Live At Talking Heads (2015)

An album of mainly covers, but excellently done. Pete’s a long-standing member of the British blues scene. Backed by a fine band.

The album can be heard and purchased from the website.

The Eric Street Band (UK)
http://ericstreetband.com/
The Blues Collection Vol 1 & 2 (2015)

Strangely no one in the band is called Eric Street. It is however named after a road in London!

What you get is an excellent 2 CD collection of originals and covers.

This along with other releases can be heard/purchased from the bands website.

Go on. Give ‘em a listen.
