Bluesdoodles rated the album when we listened & reviewed

Check out what we said HERE

25-year old British blues-rock guitarist and singer-songwriter, Laurence Jones, will release his new studio album The Truth on Friday 9th March 2018.  To dovetail the release of the album, Laurence will start his nationwide tour at London’s Borderline on Tuesday 23rd January. All tickets are £15 and available from www.thegigcartel.com and the 24 Hour Box Office 08444 790 898.

Laurence has also launched the pre-order store Check It Out that will feature a selection of bundles including the new album, vinyl, T-shirts, Ltd edition laminates and an exclusive pre-order poster.

Laurence is often labelled as “the future of the blues.” He’s won several major awards and accolades and has sold over 50,000 albums across four albums.  He’s supported the likes of Status Quo, Gary Clark Jr, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, James Bay, Van Morrison, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Joe Bonamassa Jools Holland, Eric Burdon, and many more.

Hailed as “one to watch” by all corners of the music industry, including press, concert and festival booking agents, blues fans and various musicians. Over the past five years, Laurence has really come into his own, and with his new album The Truth, he has now developed his own creative skin by writing and performing songs that are distinctive to his unique sound and identity.

Says Laurence, “The direction of this album is one I have always wanted to take and that’s crossover blues, just like my heroes John Mayer, Eric Clapton and even Jimi Hendrix. They managed to really bring the sound of the blues to the masses. This is definitely my favourite album that I have made to date. I can’t wait for people to hear The Truth.”

Laurence recorded the new album at the old Sony Studios in Miami. It proved to be an amazing opportunity when Top Stop Music, a Grammy award-winning record label, signed Laurence and proposed that he record the album in Florida.  “The studio has so much history,” says Laurence. “It has always been a dream of mine to record in America and I wanted this album to have that USA magic that a lot of my favourite records have.” 

With a strong new band, Laurence is breaking new territory as Bluesdoodles witness when he was the special guest of Kenny Wayne Shepherd at The Tramshed Cardiff.

Line-up touring  The Truth Tour 2018 is:-

Laurence Jones (Vocals, Guitar)

Bennett Holland (Keyboards, Backing Vocals)

Phil Wilson (Drums, Percussion)

Kriss Barras Band Exciting News as they Join Provogue

Kriss Barras Band Exciting News as they Join Provogue

Kriss Barras Band Exciting News as they Join Provogue

Kriss Barras Band Exciting News as they Join ProvogueMascot Label Group are thrilled to announce that the Kris Barras Band have joined the Provogue label to sit at home amongst some of the finest modern blues icons such as Joe Bonamassa, Beth Hart, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jonny Lang, Walter Trout, Eric Gales, Sonny Landreth, Gary Hoey and more.

The Devonshire born blues-rock guitar-slinger Kris Barras has built a fearsome live reputation across Europe through solid touring and the release of 2016 stellar full-length debut ‘Lucky 13’ which has seen him battle his way to the front of the British blues-rock pack. Bluesdoodles loved the album we said. “With its eleven tracks Lucky 13 rattles and rolls the blues with a twirl and a swirl of rhythms… Kris hits the right pace, the guitar is smooth as polished wood with a patina of deep emotions to keep you interested”. Read the rest of the review HERE

2017 saw him step up and step out to play in front of huge crowds at RAWA Blues Festival (Poland) and an incredible performance at Ramblin’ Man Fair (UK), but these crowds hold no fear for the former Mixed Martial Artist who has fought across the world including in Thailand, Las Vegas and in Singapore, where he fought in front of 8000 people, winning 14 out of 17 professional fights.

Inspired by his father at the early age of six-years-old, Kris was already making an appearance on stage before turning ten. He has since gone on to spend more than twenty years thrilling audiences throughout the globe playing live.

Inspired by Gary Moore and Jimi Hendrix his music and fighting went hand in hand and disillusioned by the music industry as a young man, the offers for professional fights came thick and fast. “People used to think I was crazy to be fighting in cages, risking damage to my hands,” he says. “Truth is though, I always enjoyed it and found that the fighting world offered me more opportunities than the music industry. I got to fight in front of 8000 people in Asia, I would’ve much rather have played to them instead of getting punched in the face.”

Talking about joining Provogue Kris says; “I’m really excited to be working with Provogue/Mascot. Their track record of putting out the best in Blues/Rock is second to none. To be part of a roster alongside the likes of Joe Bonamassa and Kenny Wayne Shepherd is a dream come true. It’s been a long road getting to this point in my career and I feel with Mascot on my side, it’s just getting started”

With three drummers, Pat Mastelotto, Gavin Harrison and Jeremy Stacey, as well as the return of multi-instrumentalist Bill Rieflin on keyboards, guitarist and original founding member, Robert Fripp states that this “double quartet formation” is likely to make more noise than ever before. Rounding out the eight piece line-up are guitarist and vocalist Jakko Jakszyk, long-time bassist Tony Levin, and saxophonist and flautist Mel Collins, who was a mainstay of Crim from 1970-1972. The band’s packed three-hour shows draw on material from all periods of their history, including six historic tracks that Crimson have never played live before, as well as new arrangements of Crimson classics – “the music is new whenever it was written” – and, of course, a healthy dose of new material, including the compositions for three drummers, which are a regular highlight.

Here’s what the press have raved about King Crimson’s summer 2017 North American tour:

“Jimi Hendrix saw them at the Marquee in 1969 and declared them to be the best band in the world. In many ways, almost half a century later, they still are.” – ERIC THIESSEN, All About Jazz.

“Fripp and his band offered an impeccable performance in two stages. No melodies, no flapping, only musicians at the top of their art.” – IAN BUSSIÈRES La Presse, Quebec

“The band finally reaps all that it has sown in its many transformations…the king is not dead, far from it, and they still rejoice.” – REJEAN BEAUCAGE, Voir.ca

“Crimson has never sounded more complete, or more joyous, on stage than it does now.” – JORDAN ZIVITZ, Montreal Gazette

“The uniqueness of seeing each of these seasoned musicians working is near indescribable and has to be experienced live to fully embrace their vision – think of eight master painters working in their own style, but on a common canvas, and you begin to get the idea of things.” – WE HEART MUSIC, Minneapolis

“On our final evening at the festival, we were witness to the concert that inevitably proved to be its highlight…The blend of mood, melody, ambiance and atmosphere dazzled the audience, which responded with frequent standing ovations.” – LEE ZIMMERMAN, Goldmine Magazine

World-renowned guitar virtuoso, Joe Satriani, announces the release of his 16th solo album, What Happens Next, set for release, January 12, 2018 on Sony/Legacy Recordings.

 

Satriani’s new, instrumentally electrifying album features a power trio of legendary status; Satriani on guitar and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee bassist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple/Black Country Communion) and drummer Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), the latter reuniting with Satriani for the first time since their work in the supergroup Chickenfoot.

Satriani is once again joined by producer/engineer/mixer Mike Fraser, his frequent collaborator over the last 20 years, on What Happens Next. Fraser is well-known for recording/mixing every AC/DC album since 1990’s The Razors Edge along with his classic works with Satriani going back to the release of Crystal Planet in 1998.

The new tracks vibrate the soul with an energy rarely found these days. From the dynamic opening track, Energy, to the majestic crunch of Thunder High on the Mountain, and the easy, sensual chords of Smooth Soul. This unparalleled rock-rhythm section gives What Happens Next a depth of groove that sets it apart from Satriani’s previous work.

South African singer-songwriter and guitarist, Dan Patlansky, is set to the release his new studio album Perfection Kills in the UK on Friday 2nd February 2018. The album is the follow up to 2016’s critically acclaimed Introvertigo which was voted #1 BluesRock Album 2016 by Blues Rock Review.

Bluesdoodles loved the album Introvertivgo we said this and more “Introvertigo with its carefully crafted lyrics that blend urbane wit and honest observation, this is blues pertinent to today’s lifestyles, not so much whiskey and women more the corruption of power and social interaction. Ten tracks there are no fillers every number is full of strength and tonal power but there is not an off note or lyric”.

To dovetail with the release of the new album, Dan will be the special guest on Joanne Shaw Taylor’s nationwide 7-date UK tour that starts on Tuesday 7th November at Gateshead Sage. To coincide with the tour, he will release a new single Dog Day taken from the Perfection Kills album.  Dan said “There’s going to be a big emphasis on a lot of touring around the new record which I can’t wait for. November 2017 I will be touring with Joanne Shaw Taylor in the U.K and will perform the first single, Dog Day, live for the first time. March 2018 we return to U.K/Europe for the Perfection Kills album launch tour.

Check out the November UK tour dates HERE

Patlansky was nominated as one of Classic Rock magazine’s hotly tipped new artists of 2015. His album, Dear Silence Thieves received accolades and praise from the British press. He’s been voted Most Promising Male Blues Artist by Blues & Soul Magazine, and only recently has he been nominated as Best International Solo Artist at the Planet Rock Radio ‘Rocks’ Awards.

2018 Dan Patlansky UK Tour Plus New Album Perfection KillsPerfection Kills was recorded at Scherzo Productions, a recording studio in Dan’s hometown of Pretoria, South Africa. Dan chose Scherzo because he wanted to make a different sounding record and he felt it was the right studio for his vision.

Patlansky produced the album himself, something he hadn’t done in years. Says Dan, “I learnt so much working with Theo Crous who was the producer on previous two albums Dear Silence Thieves and Introvertigo. I worked on pre-production and songwriting with Theo on a couple of the tracks for Perfection Kills and applied what I learnt to the recording and production process of the album.”

Perfection Kills is all about my vision of making a record that still make the songwriting a priority as in the past, the final product delivers a far more real and organic result.”

Beth Hart Vocal Power Captivates The Forum Tonight

Beth Hart Vocal Power Captivates The Forum Tonight

 

The Forum, a former Art Deco Cinema in Bath tonight is the backdrop for a Beth Hart Solo Concert. The lights dimmed and Beth strode onto the stage full of smiles and confidence. Her opening number was stunning setting the tone of the evening. Alone on the stage, she did not sit behind the Grand Piano but knelt on the stage and sung A Capella giving the audience a true taste of her incredible vocal talent. She greeted the audience, welcomed her sister sitting in the auditorium who had flown in from the States especially for the concert tonight.

 

Beth Hart Vocal Power Captivates The Forum TonightThen with a grace, she sat behind the Grand Piano her first instrument of choice. Tonight without a band Beth was her own accompaniment choosing the instrument that suited the song, so we heard her play acoustic guitar, acoustic bass and electric piano as the evening progressed. We heard her version of Tom Waits Chocolate Jesus and by the third song in Beth had the audience entranced. We were hanging onto every note played and every word she sung and the openness with which she shared her bad times that were at times painful to hear, this was not self-pity but gave context to the songs. Many of the experiences the audience could personally relate to. Beth Hart’s music stripped back, with the lyrics laid bare was an emotional journey for everyone tears were shed on stage and in the auditorium tonight. This is music that connects a great performer with the audience.

Beth Hart Vocal Power Captivates The Forum TonightThe frailty of trying to set yourself free from abuse, it was as if while singing the title song from her album Better Than Home alone on a stage behind the Grand Piano we all experienced a cathartic experience, as the vocal crescendo rose up over the piano in a beautiful art deco setting. Music has power and Beth harnessed it tonight majestically. St Teresa was the next Hart classic sung with pure emotion, the words flowed like a blessing for everyone in the room tonight, touching our inner soul healing hurts and uniting us.

Stepping out from behind the piano with a huge smile she picked up the acoustic sharing family tales and how Scott and her bought an affectionate wreck resulting in a song written in his honour The Ugliest House On the Block from her Bang Bang Boom Boom album.  The Boogieman with soft gentle guitar, calming almost a lullaby despite the dark words. Closing the number with whistling that was sublime, eerie and stunning as the song closed the silence was filled once again with rousing applause. Third instrument of the evening, acoustic bass for Spiders In My Bed from her first album Immortal. The inspiration from the effects of sleep deprivation being wired and tired.

Now a change of tone, that moving from instrument to instrument achieved as she sat behind the electric piano. We heard how after her first career crashed, she was ashamed of the drugs, drink and failure. She had screwed up everything. “For the first time since I was four” she told us she stopped playing the piano. Then she wrote Leave The light On emotional, Beth was wrung out, the tempo was warm with a gospel feel. Tears were spilt with the emotional beauty. Then the mood lighted with Coca-Cola, summertime, beach and boys. Inspired from when the younger ten-year-old Beth thought boys would taste of Coca-Cola! What a set of tubes Beth Has. Warm, sultry, angry, soft and beguiling shape the highest to the lowest notes.  The voice rose up to the top of the vaulted dome as the theatre reverberated with the pure joy of hearing Beth Hart’s voice tonight.

Beth Hart Vocal Power Captivates The Forum TonightWith a wave, a smile and thank you for being a lovely audience Beth left the stage, the audience erupted standing on our feet cheering clapping shouting for more. We were not disappointed Beth obliged. With another four songs from behind the Grand Piano. Starting with Tell Her You Belong To Me from Better Than Home, with more tales, some laughs and the inspiration behind Love Is A Lie when Mark left her eighty-two-year-old Mum for another woman!

Two hours of glorious entertainment and Beth left the stage we wanted more as the applause continued as the house lights went up. A Very special evening in the company of Beth Hart and her wonderful voice.

Many of the numbers were taken from her critically acclaimed album Fire on the Floor they worked perfectly in this setting. Beth Hart’s solo performance was special. Interweaving her performance were songs that reflect her life as her career grows from strength to strength the second time around.

Tonight, Beth Hart at The Forum captivated the audience. Loving every moment Beth was on stage. The music was stripped back, exposed at times showing vulnerability, then brutal and beautiful the link between all the emotions Beth shared tonight was heartfelt honesty.
