Robert Cray: Enmore Theatre, Sydney Gig Review

It was a crisp night in Newtown, Sydney, but that’s okay because we were in for a treat: an evening at the Enmore Theatre where the excitement which swirled through the air was thick and warming. For on this night, we would be graced by the presence of contemporary Blues royalty, five-time Grammy award winner Robert Cray. Cray’s album with Hi Rhythm from last year received exceptional reviews (some of his best ever in fact) and was nominated for a Grammy, while recently winning Soul Blues album of the year at the Blues Music Awards. He has twenty studio releases under his belt, all of which are infused with his unique genre blend of Soul, Blues, Rock, Funk, and Reggae.

Mitch Laddie Band: Another World Review

Eclectic, that’s the word. Mitch Laddie and his band from the North East of England are not one-trick ponies. Laddie clearly knows his Hendrix, but isn’t in thrall to him. Vocally he’s at ease with soulful and funky, but can give it a bit oomph, too. He can throw in some jazzy tweaks that suggest Steely Dan, but balance that with blues rock grit. And he can get rootsy, but can do it with a dash of imagination.

Radio Moscow release “Driftin” video

Radio Moscow has released a music video for “Driftin,” which is featured on the group’s latest album, New Beginnings.

Dany Franchi: Problem Child Review

It’s very refreshing to see a performer like 28-year-old Dany Franchi keeping the Blues alive. When listening to him, at times you can easily forget he was born in Genoa, Italy, because on his new album Problem Child, Franchi sounds like a young Texas Bluesman. Although his vocal delivery is a bit Jonny Lang, the way he confronts his Fender Stratocaster comfortably sits between the tone and techniques of brothers Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Dana Fuchs releases “Love Lives On” video

Dana Fuchs has released a music video for “Love Lives On,” the title track from her new album available May 18.
