Othello and his team of humans who share his love of music

Let me introduce myself. My name is Othello, the dog behind the people. I assist in many ways, visiting festivals to check out the food, consider the tracks that are worth lifting my head to listen too closely. I make sure my human, Liz, keeps working at her machine editing and writing while feeding me treats

Meet Liz Aiken

Liz founded Bluesdoodles in January 2013. The first post was a celebration of live music, with Larry Miller – since then many thousands of posts and many hundred-thousands of views. Eight years later with thousands of photographs, hundreds of album and Live Music reviews and the many opportunities to chat with artists.

Meet The Team:

Ange Cobham: Photographer and reviewer of live shows. Check out Cobspix & Radio Presenter at Ange’s Rock Show.
Her photographs speak a thousand words capturing the dynamic action on stage through her lens.

About & Contact Bluesdoodles

Tom Dixon: A regular contributor – his erudite album reviews. Tom speaks the truth and tells it how he has enjoyed the music.  Look out for his quirky follow-on tune (the next song in order on his iTunes library) after listening to the album. Some interesting finds.

Simon Green: A regular contributes across the music pages, album and live reviews with his photography providing an insight into the gig. His Interviews are always an interesting read with questions that keeps the conversation flowing.

Clive Rawlings: Contributes with his pithy album reviews and conversation with artists that delves that little bit deeper. Clive when not contributing to Bluesdoodles can be found delivering his Boogie Train Radio Show
