Celebrated South African guitarist and vocalist Dan Patlansky will release his highly anticipated new single ‘Sonnova Faith‘ on Monday 10th April to coincide with his upcoming April / May UK tour with special guest Ash Wilson.

The new single is taken from Patlansky’s current album Introvertigo which was recently voted the #1 Blues Rock Album of 2016 by the Blues Rock Review.  This marks the second time Patlansky has been voted #1 in Blues Rock Reviews’ Top 20 Albums Polls.

Patlansky’s special guest is Lincolnshire-based singer-songwriter Ash Wilson, who releases his debut album Broken Machine on April 21st, and is hailed as one of the UK’s most exciting new guitarist and singer-songwriters around.

Krissy Matthews Releases New Live Album ‘Live At Freak Valley’


Krissy Matthews Band are set to embark on a UK tour in March and April to celebrate the release of their first live album ‘Live At Freak Valley‘. Released by Proper Records on Friday 14th April, the live album was recorded at the Freak Valley Festival in Siegen, Germany on May 27, 2016. It really catches the adrenalin and pure excitement of the band in all their glory.  

Too many bands release “live records” but half of it is over dubbed in the studio and the f*** ups are erased,” says Matthews. “On Freak Valley you get the real deal. No overdubs.

Originally from Oxford, Krissy’s band has often been described as an exciting, high octane, power rock trio steeped in blues roots. 24 year old Matthews has performed at some of Europe’s most iconic music venues including Ronnie Scott’s, Loreley, Tanzbrunnen and Festa Avante. He’s also opened for many high profile recording artists at the top of their game including Joe Bonamassa, Toto, Gregg Allman and Tedeschi Trucks Band.

Pre-order the album from Amazon.

Track listing:

  1. Feeling For The Blues
  2. I’ve Been Searching
  3. All Night Long
  4. Searching The Desert For The Blues
  5. Language by Injection
  6. The Soul Will Never Die

Jeff Angell’s Staticland Commence UK Tour With Candlebox


Jeff Angell’s Staticland is thrilled to be returning to Europe for some dates this January with legendary Seattle Candlebox, including London’s Underworld on January 27th.

The Walking Papers singer Jeff Angell’s Staticland self-titled debut album released on UDR, is a captivating menagerie of songs that effortlessly shift from raucous, snarling, barn burners to moving Stones-inspired ballads that you will want to play on repeat. Produced By Grammy award winner Vance Powell (Jack White, The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs, Seasick Steve), the sound is that of a provocative, imaginative blues rock which breaths new life into the genre.

I believed that we have succeeded in defining a sound that is undeniably our own. Fusing blues and post punk influences with time and attention invested in the lyrics and arrangements.” exclaims Angell and while calling Cabdlebox “an outstanding rock n roll band”  he promises Staticland’s shows will be “full of swaggering songs that swing and shuffle savagely” and will enthral audiences.
