After 20 months of grinding, worrying, trusting and learning to master patience, my new album Different Shades/Same Blue is finally finished. I couldn't be more proud of it and thankful to the musicians that blessed me with their skills and contributions to this album. I will be thanking and showcasing these people as I get closer to my release date. December 2nd, 2016!! I have a release party in the works, and some great videos coming your way so look out for that.
An emotional mix of rhythm & blues, soul and country.
Turning life's defeats, challenges and mistakes into universal lyrics was the goal in making Different Shades/Same Blue. Ranging from the blues of Couch Blues, the gospel touches of Feels Like Rain, the Parisian jazz styling of Things Are Starting To Look Up, the country soul of Some Kind of Way, to the ambient sounds of Again, this album finds it's cohesiveness through it's theme of exploring one's sadder moments.

Op weg naar hun uitbundig te vieren 50-jarig bestaan (in 2018!) komt Haarlems bekendste bluesband naar het Patronaat met hun splinternieuw ‘Blue Skin Album’. Tien gevarieerde songs, verpakt in een prachtig geïllustreerd album . En wat meer is: elke bezoeker ontvangt een gratis exemplaar! Wel een teken dat John the Revelator gelooft in de vernieuwende kracht van dit uitzonderlijke album met zes nieuwe songs van eigen makelij naast o.a. Sensitive Kind van J.J. Cale en het befaamde The Green Masnalishi van Peter Green.  In de prehistorie van 1969 schreef Haarlems Dagblad over de band: ‘Het stampt, het dreunt, het is pure blues’; 48 jaar later is de band geëvolueerd naar een hechte eenheid van soepele jams en knap doorontwikkelde studionummers waarin allerlei solo’s spannend in elkaar grijpen. Met de strot van Tom Huissen, de unieke gitaarsolo’s van Frans ten Kleij, de slides van Paul Dammers, de beats van Cor Dijkhuizen en de virtuositeit van Erwin Aubroeck op Hammond organ heeft Haarlem nog steeds een band die staat als een huis. Komt dat horen!

Matt Corcoran is considered to be one of Australia's best electric-acoustic slide guitar players. He is a true innovator of the one-man-glues-band. He plays slide guitar on his lap, and drums/percussion with his feet. His acoustic guitar is set up to produce both an acoustic and electric slide guitar sound, which produces an enormous tone!
Matt Corcoran's slide guitar is also linked to a device that allows Matt Corcoran to record and loop his own blues grooves (live on stage) and play them back in the background. These hypnotic blues grooves, combined with Matt's drums, lead slide, and vocals earned him the title of the "freaky Little One Man Blues Band!"
ANGRY YOUNG MAN is Matt's second album and is ball breaking, 3-piece, rock blues tribute to the slide guitar...with some clever song writing and witty lyrics. It features the fantastic blues session band of Robert Dillon and Paul Gadsby.
It is also Matt’s vocal debut, a task that he worked like a pro, and sees a maturing of Matt’s guitar talents and song writing ability. Matt’s “The Angry Young Man Tour of Australia” successfully toured for over 2 years and the songs are still holding up, with many of the crowds favourites being on this album. During this tour Matt has sold thousands of copies of "Angry Young Man", and it is still selling strong. You won't be disappointed

Like so many up-and-coming guitarists in those days, The Shadows immensely influenced Eric. He played in a number of groups, notably with Them, and eventually joined a Blues band called Shades of Blue, replacing their guitarist, a young man called Gary Moore. By 1969 Eric bell wanted to form a three-piece Blues-Rock jam-band, like Hendrix and Cream. He hooked up with Phil Lynott (vocals, bass), and Brian Downey (drums) formed Thin Lizzy. Bell's bluesy, Hendrix-influenced lead guitar proved perfect for the hard rocking direction that both Lynott and Downey also sought for their new band. Eric also came up with the name for the band, inspired by an old Dandy comic book robot character called Tin Lizzie – the 'Mechanical Maid." Later, keyboard player Eric Wrixon completed the line-up. And the rest – as they say is history… When Thin Lizzy first started Eric played the Blues to enthusiastic crowds in bars and clubs around Belfast, before "Whiskey In The Jar" became a huge hit and propelled the band, and especially front man Phil Lynott, to legendary stardom. But Eric never gave up his love for Blues music, and has now returned to his musical roots, revisiting songs from Blues heroes such as the three Kings of the Blues; Albert, B.B. and Freddy, as well as Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Howlin' Wolf, Albert Collins and Elmore James.

Nearly thirty-five years ago "Whiskey In The Jar" became a humongous hit for Thin Lizzy. Since then the song has become a Rock classic, having been recorded by countless musicians, ranging from the Irish Folk band The Dubliners to the Heavy Metal dinosaurs Metallica, who issued the tune as their Millennium single. But no-one has ever captured the essence and the unique feel of "Whiskey In The Jar" like the man who created the original guitar parts: Eric Bell, the first guitarist and founding member with Thin Lizzy, who still creates magic when he picks up his guitar and plays the instantly recognizable intro.
Lately Eric Bell is back on the road playing what he loves best, the Blues. When Thin Lizzy first started Eric played the Blues to enthusiastic crowds, which packed the bars and clubs around Belfast, before everything changed when "Whiskey In The Jar" became a huge hit and propelled the band to legendary stardom. But Eric never gave up his love for Blues music, and nearly thirty-five years later Eric has returned to his musical roots and is once more exploring and recreating songs from his beloved Blues heroes such as Albert King, Freddie King, Buddy Guy, Howlin' Wolf, Albert Collins and Elmore James.

Original rocking Blues from New Jersey's best loved Bluesman!
Produced by Bob Lanza and recorded at Skylab Recording studio in Roosevelt, New Jersey, Time to Let Go is Bob’s fourth album release. Its 11 tracks, a mix of soulful originals and cool covers, showcase Bob’s powerful blues guitar work and sinewy vocals.

“This album comes at a time when I've had a lot of loss in my life,” confesses Lanza. “My mother and brother both passed away while I was recording this CD. It’s a tribute to them, and a suggestion to all of the families that go through difficult times; you gotta let ‘em go and continue life.

“From the sound engineers to the people at Connor Ray and all who helped on this project - these people are what make the world go round. To see how much help I got while doing this CD was just mind-blowing to me.”
Joining Bob on the album are his regular touring band members, plus The Cranberry Lake Horns and several special guests, including Steve Krase on harmonica.
The circumstances that occurred during the recording of Time to Let Go fueled an extra level of expression of visceral feeling from Lanza, which manifested itself in both his guitar playing and singing. “My guitar is raw, powerful and very emotional on these tracks,” he admits.
Born and raised in the wilds of northern New Jersey, Bob Lanza took advantage of his proximity to New York City to learn from the great Johnny “Clyde” Copeland and Floyd Phillips. Their influences can be heard in the passion embedded in all of Lanza’s music. More recently, Bob Lanza has provided support for Trudy Lynn and James Cotton on their East Coast appearances.
Bob Lanza sums up the music on Time to Let Go with this message: “the blues is alive and it’s coming to get you!!”

Partiti dal loro primo album Spring Time Coming, uscito nel 2009, i Mountain Men proseguono lungo la loro strada lastricata di rock, folk e blues. E non si pongono limiti artistici; a guidarli sono solo emozione ed energia. Le loro influenze, che spaziano dal rock alla canzone d’autore, dai Metallica a Georges Brassens, passando per Bob Dylan e Tom Waits, fanno dei Mountain Men un gruppo originale e singolare; trait d’union fra emozione ed acuto senso dello spettacolo. Formato da Mat, proveniente dalle montagne di Grenoble, e da Iano, orginario australiano, il duo ha saputo conquistare il suo pubblico con oltre 600 concerti (Francia, Europa e Nord America), tre album studio e due live.  A distanza di poco piu di un anno dall’intenso Against The Wind che denota una gia piu ampia apertura verso un versante piu elettrico, e dopo 80 date nel 2015 (fra cui Musilac, Beauregard o Les Deferlantes), i Mountain Men torneranno da ottobre 2016 a calcare i palchi internazionali con l’album Black Market Flowers (Echo Production), in distribuzione dal 18 novembre prossimo.
E non saranno soli: questa nuova avventura li vedra per la prima volta esibirsi in quartetto con Denis Barthe, il celebre batterista dei Noir Desire e produttore del disco, e Olivier Mathios (The Hyenes) al basso. Due “acquisti” che contribuiranno a rendere la prossima tournee dagli accenti decisamente piu rock!
Alla registrazione del disco hanno inoltre partecipato Estelle Humeau (Eiffel) alla tastiera, Herve Toukour (The Very Big Small Orchestra) al violino e infine Jean – Paul Roy (Noir Desire) alla chitarra.
Black Market Flowers apre una nuova pagina per il gruppo, paradossalmente ancora piu personale. Si parla di tempeste interiori, di amici perduti, di rabbia e d’amore, di rock e di energia; di tutte quelle emozioni che rendono questo disco un distillato di pura vitalita e specchio della loro musica: dura, semplice, bella e universale.

There is bootstompin’, soulshakin’ rock‘n’roll — and then there is reveling in Revel in Dimes. This is not The Black Keys and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, blended together by way of Jack White and a nice hook; this is unmanufactured music that shakes you up and spits you back out, all ugly and heavy and mean, the way they invented music to be. This might get dangerous, is what you need to know before we get started here, because this is what fearlessness sounds like.
