Blues Guitarist Jesse Davey's "The Crow" Music Video

This is such a cool video. You see a black cat and crow roaming around a bathroom while Jesse’s body plays guitar and Pete Gage’s face sings along from a screen.

Jesse Davey is a UK Blues legend, from opening for Buddy Guy to being inducted into the British Blues Hall of Fame for his time spent leading multi-award winning blues band The Hoax. On his latest solo album Big Blues, Jesse showcases his remarkable guitar style ranging from blistering pyrotechnics with jazz and classical flavors to beautiful and soul searching solos.

UK Blues and Country artist Tom McCartney upcoming single release "Kicked Outta Town"

Describing himself as "a bluesy rock 'n' roll artist with some country twang", Tom McCartney is a young, up and coming blues, country and rock 'n' roll artist from Nottinghamshire, UK. Along with his recently formed backing band he hosts a set comprising originals and covers, acoustic and electric, upbeat and down tempo. You would be forgiven for mistaking him for a much older man - his deep, husky voice tells tales way beyond his 16 year age and his music reflects the struggles and pleasures his life has already brought upon him. He writes and performs his own original material with influences from Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Buddy Guy, Johnny Cash, Elmore James, Junior Wells, Noel Gallagher and Jake Bugg.

Tom's new single "Kicked Outta Town" is due for release and available for public download on January 24th 2016.

With a lot of life to live - and still much to learn - Tom looks to be well on his way . . and will hopefully be bringing the next generation of blues-lovers with him.

Introducing Shun Ng and The Shunettes! Funky Soul Jazz "Get On With It" Video

"Get On With It" - Shun Ng and The Shunettes

Shun Ng is an artist that defies categorization. His music encompasses styles from classical to soul to jazz and everything in between. He is a singer, guitarist, songwriter, arranger and an all round major talent. Born in Chicago, raised in Singapore, now touring out of Boston, Shun has been dazzling audiences all over the world.

In January 2012, Shun released his debut album “Funky Thumb Stuff” which garnered him national recognition. In that same year, Shun was featured twice in the Asian news network, Channel News Asia and was also invited to perform for the President of Singapore on national television. Later that year, Shun was featured alongside other internationally renowned Jazz artists by Singapore’s own King of Swing, Jeremy Monteiro in the Jazzy Christmas concert series. “Funky Thumb Stuff” also came into the attention of veteran Fingerstyle Guitarist, Tuck Andress of Tuck & Patti, who said he was “dazzled by his technique and captivated by his guitar groove” and went on to describe Shun’s singing as “well beyond his years yet with the innocence of a child.”

After seeing a Shun Ng video, 27 Grammy award winner Quincy Jones invited Shun to his house to see Shun's talent live. He came away saying "When you see Shun Ng, you won't believe your eyes nor your ears. He belies all stereotypes, all premonitions. I was simply blown away by both his soul and his science - his creativity and his uniqueness is astounding." 

He stands as one of the most dynamic and innovative performers, his shows are an unrivaled experience that is not to be missed.
