A Bluesdoodles Heads up Released on Friday 19th March, Morgan Wade album Reckless
Virginia-native Morgan Wade’s forthcoming album Reckless continues to build steam ahead of its Friday, March 19th release with the brand new song ‘Take Me Away’ today. Listen to the new track and pre-order the album HERE.
We have listened and love the sound, Morgan’s vocal cajole and demands you sit still, listen and enjoy – a full Bluesdoodles review coming very soon…. definitely before release day Friday 19th March!
J Lee and the Hoodoo Skulls from Surrey UK reveal their new single ‘Baby Blue’ and groove-laden lyric video from their album ‘Beggars Soul’ which is due for release later this year via CD and all platforms.
Fronted by J Lee, the son of the legendary household name Shakin’ Stevens (yes, the very one) with Harun Kotch (Lead Guitarist and co writer/producer with the band), Wayne Riches (Drums – formerly with Skin of Skunk Anansie) and Mike Hartnett (Bass), create a sound so punchy you’ll have to pinch yourself to remember that they come from the UK. Gutsy, edgy, raw are just some of the words that have been used to describe their sound.
Have a listen, it will get your toes tapping and rocking out. It will be worth the wait wait, that said we impatiently await release day of Beggars Soul later in 2021. Until then enjoy Baby Blue!
Bluesdoodles has not been sharing Tour dates and announcements as they have been repeatedly changed as the virus has held our gigging lives on hold. With fingers crossed and a deep breath perhaps the corner has been turned, So here are the first tour posters we have shared for a long time!
Bluesdoodles Reviews & Interviews March 2021
John Diva and The Rockets of Love – American Amadeus – Bluesdoodles rating: 4 Doodle Paws – A Wonderful, nostalgic but fresh 80s sounding rock record delivered with power, passion and a smile.
Edenbridge delivers a double-CD of musical delights on The Chronicles of Eden Part 2.
Bluesdoodles rating: 4 Doodle Paws – A Wonderful album to give you a start on the catalogue of this wide-ranging rock band and a few bonuses if you’re already there.
The Outlaw Orchestra Release Today Rattlesnake Sour – dynamic acoustic warming your taste buds for the main event Powercut out 26th March
Bluesdoodles says – The vocal intro you expect a full-on electric sound then – the music starts raucous with energising Acoustic. The slide is drive by the whiskey bottle, powered by Rattlesnake sour. The video assails your senses: see the visual narrative, your tongue teased by the virtual taste of whiskey, smell the heat and sea from the wider world, touch the magic. We wait for the mini-album – Powercut out on 26th March.
Bluesdoodles rating: 4 Doodle Paws – A Wonderful album showcasing an excellent band with the added benefit of some rarities.
Chemia release new single ‘Angina’ announcing the album ‘Something to Believe In’ out 20th August. Pre-order on the strength of Angina.
Bluesdoodles listened and loves the new single – a new band for Liz and she enjoyed what she heard: This so powerful rock fuelled orchestration drives you through the desert landscape. The music is hot, and it is about to warm up as the vocals cut a swathe through the music score. The landscape is barren. But the music holds your attention combined with the energy of the band as they drive through the heat to bring you Orchestrated Rock with a compelling swell of sound with hints of Arabian magic and mystery.
