The band has been together since October 2009, initially playing Rock & Blues covers around the bar & club circuit in the North-East of England. By Spring 2010, they'd cooked up enough ideas to go and make their own album at Newcastle's Cluny Studios.
The result was the "Electrickery" CD and subsequent reactions have been way beyond expectations, firstly, getting some incredible press reviews - including album of the month in Classic Rock - the U.K's biggest music magazine (who've also decided to include our song "Little Josephine" on their cover CD for the April 2012 issue). National distribution through Plastic Head/Code7 also helped to establish the beginnings of a fan-base outside the North-East. Indeed, much of 2011 was spent travelling up & down the length of the country to vociferous acclaim.
On top of this, a mini-tour of the U.S mid-west was also squeezed in after the CD got significant airplay on a number of Blues radio shows in Indiana, Nebraska, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Kansas. As a result, further rave reviews followed & Russ has even received a 1st-round nomination for a BMA, (Blues Music Awards, Memphis 2012).
Gig offers have been pouring in for 2012, many from venues that had previously shown no interest. Now the band are looking forward to appearances at some prestigious festivals including HEBDEN BLUES in June www.hebdenbues.co.uk ; MARYPORT BLUES FESTIVAL in July www.maryportblues.com; and COLNE R&B Festival in August www.bluesfestival.co.uk/
The "Electrickery" album features nine original songs plus the Hendrix track "Freedom" and is available on Code7/Plastic Head through most HMV stores. Alternatively, you can order it on here from our album page or download it from iTunes
All three band members are established professional musicians. Russ has been one of the most popular performers on the N.E live music circuit over the last 10 years, whether playing solo or with the acclaimed Led Zeppelin tribute Zep3 (now disbanded).
John Dawson & Ian Halford come pretty much as a matched pair, having already played together in 2 different bands over the last 5 years, plus work on the theatre circuit including shows like Footloose, and Jesus Christ Superstar.
