  • Blame Me is TY Curtis best CD yet! What a Showman with great Vocals

  • If you haven’t already here Andrew MacKenzie then may I suggestion you make a point of finding him and listening to his music! I voted for his album ‘Living the Lie’…and if you like it once you’ve heard it, then listen to ´A load off my Mind’ too! Talented musician deserving a boost!

  • From the first time I listened to the new Ty Curtis album “Blame Me” I was blown away! I listened to it all the time now while driving around! Ty’s live show and band are amazing and this album brings that “live show” energy to your ears. Every song on this album is great, both lyrically & musically!

  • So it looks like the vote is for only one album to pick the top 20?
    If that’s the case I go with Joe Bonamassa Blues Of Desperation.
    May be his best ever

  • Check out ‘My Religion’released this year by veteran blues/rock guitarist and singer John Verity.This album reached No 15 in the IBBA Charts this Summer and has received many accolades from fans,professional publications and reviewers alike including below from Ross Muir-Fabrications HQ,Scotland.
    ‘John Verity is one of many going about his business in a blaze of blues based consistency that should carry a lot more recognition than it does–if it was Robert Cray on the smooth blues and equally smooth, melodic licks of ‘Hope for the Best’ (lyrically coming across like John Verity’s musical Method Statement) it wouldn’t be off the blues radio airwaves’.

  • Dan Patlansky had my favorite release this year, but Rival Sons and Robert Jon and The Wreck was good as well.

  • Full of brilliant songs, mesmerising guitar and committed vocals, Three Miles From Avalon is hands down the most exciting, focused and blues centric album yet from Davy Knowles.

  • Your album collection will never be complete until you add Davy Knowles “Three Miles From Avalon”…mark my words…money well spent and you won’t be disappointed…be sure to catch him live as he makes his rounds http://www.davyknowles.com/tour

  • After years on the European festival and concert circuit, Eric Steckel is back with an all new record, “Black Gold”. Recorded in Amsterdam, Netherlands and Nashville, Tennessee; U.S.A. Black Gold stands out as Eric’s best work to date.
    On Black Gold, Eric Steckel takes listeners on a musical roller-coaster ride that embodies the human spirit. It captures the emotions of daily life. Black gold is his most diverse album to date. Fans of vintage guitar, blues/rock, will immediately fall in love with Black Gold. From soft, dynamic Blues ballads to heavy, low-tuned Rock anthems, Eric’s signature guitar style is front and center. No pedals, samples or drum machines. No apologies for turning it up higher than 10; to 11. This is blues/rock the way they used to make it!

  • For those who don’t know Dan Patlansky, please check it out on spotify or you tube. Invertigo is an amazing album performed by an incredible artist.
    Just look it up people. You will not be sorry.

  • Stevie Nimmo’s Sky Won’t fall is EPIC. So good I’ve been trying to learn some of them for playing live.
    “Running on back to you” is a masterpiece.

  • Of course I am biased in voting for SARI SCHORR as it seems I was the one that took a big chance taking this extraordinary vocalist into the studio when everyone else was ignoring her incredible talent. But this is not about me…this is about Sari and her her debut CD “A Force Of Nature”. It may be early days…six months ago she was a total unknown. Now her name is on the tip of everyone’s tongue. I had not expected for this release to be thought as having been worthy of such recognition…there is so much competition and newcomers often get neglected when Awards come around. I will not hide the fact that, for me, “A Force Of Nature” gives me a feeeling of enormous pride. Naturally enough, I want everyone to know about this release; I want everyone to want to own a copy but most of all I want everyone to vote for “A Force Of Nature” and SARI SCHORR…one of the most extraordinary artists that I have had the pleasure of working with.
    If you have not heard of her before, then now is the time to become acquainted…you will not be disappointed! ?Mike Vernon

  • Davy Knowles’ “Three Miles From Avalon” is the best new album I have heard recently. Davy is a triple threat. He excels at singing, playing and songwriting and this new album features some of his best work. It has everything, rock, ballad, blues and even a bit of gospel. An incredible all around fantastic album.

  • Stevie Nimmo Trio – Sky Won’t Fall – is head and shoulders above everything else released this year. My second choice would be Albany Down – The Outer Reach. Perhaps the voting should include your top three albums – it is agonising trying to pick just one!

  • It’s ridiculous that Eddie Martin’s new release ‘Black White and Blue’ isn’t on the list.
    It’s the best Blues Rock album I’ve heard all year!

    Reply
  • Davy Knowles “Three Miles from Avalon” is absolutely brilliant! this young “Guitar God” (as per Peter Frampton who produced and played on Davy’s second album) is not only one of the best Blues Guitarists( recent comment from JB when Davy played with him onstage) but is a phenomenal singer and songwriter. This is a must have album and seeing Davy play live is a life changing musical experience!

  • Gary Hoey’s “Dust & Bones” is an incredible blues/rock CD!

  • Dan Patlansky’s follow up album to his 2014 Blues-Rock Album of the year Introvertigo is simply awesome…I simply can’t wait til he makes it to the U.S.A.
