Gwyn Ashton was born in Wales and grew up in Adelaide, South Australia. His guitar playing was first inspired by musicians from the Australian scene, such as Chris Finnen, Kevin Borich and Ian Moss, along with favourites Chuck Berry, and Hank Marvin. In 1985, Gwyn moved to Sydney joining John Swan's band Swanee, and by 1986 he had teamed up with ex-Easybeats vocalist Stevie Wright and members of Jimmy Barnes's band. Malcom Young's nephew James played drums with Gwyn for a time and introduced him to Mal, who came to a few of Gwyn's gigs before resuming his tour dates with AC/DC. Gwyn spent most of the Eighties playing in almost every bar in Australia impressing many international musicians, including Mick Fleetwood, who sat in with Gwyn's band one late night in Adelaide.
Gwyn Ashton delivers a powerful yet bluesy Rock, with country and jazz influences. His guitar playing varies from the wild to the colourful or gentle, and offers a fantastic and diverse range of melodies. Each of his notes come alive with an uncommon touch, which mixes Blues techniques, sheer power and musical tradition from his country of origin. Gwyn Ashton, 38, displays his experience in his debut album, "Feel the Heat". This guitar virtuoso is one of the most promising talents of the new "classic" Rock scene, succeeding Albert Lee, Jimmy Page and Rory Gallagher. His power trio has opened in Australia for Rory Gallagher, Junior Wells, Steve Morse and Albert Lee and in Europe for Buddy Guy, Peter Green, and many others.

Van Morrison is set to return to his roots on new album 'Roll With The Punches'. A true great, Van The Man has pieced together a new 15 track album that blends R&B and soul gems with brand new material. Produced by Van Morrison himself, collaborators on the record include Chris Farlowe, Georgie Fame, Jeff Beck, Paul Jones and Jason Rebello. The album includes classics penned by T-Bone Walker, Bo Diddley, Little Walter, Mose Allison, given a new interpretation by the studio crew.
Van Morrison explains: "From a very early age, I connected with the blues. The thing about the blues is you don’t dissect it – you just do it. I’ve never over-analysed what I do; I just do it. Music has to be about just doing it and that’s the way the blues works – it’s an attitude. I was lucky to have met people who were the real thing – people like John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Witherspoon, Bo Diddley, Little Walter & Mose Allison. I got to hang out with them and absorb what they did. They were people with no ego whatsoever and they helped me learn a lot." "The songs on 'Roll With The Punches' - whether I’ve written them or not - they’re performance oriented. Each song is like a story and I’m performing that story. That’s been forgotten over years because people over-analyse things. I was a performer before I started writing songs and I’ve always felt like that’s what I do."

Sonny Black And The Dukes - Heart And Soul

Bitrate: 320K/s
Year: 2000
Time: 45:42
Size: 105,3 MB
Label: Bluetrack Records
Styles: Blues
Art: Full

Tracks Listing:
 1. Through Heaven's Eyes - 5:03
 2. Checkin' In - 3:23
 3. Blues Walkin' By My Side - 6:18
 4. If I Ever Get To Heaven - 3:58
 5. Raggin' The Strings - 1:20
 6. Grant's Groove - 4:30
 7. Rockin' With Bill - 1:58
 8. Would I Be Right - 4:40
 9. Blues Is King - 5:57
10. Bluesology - 4:42
11. Kelly's Blues - 3:49

Sonny Black is a British guitarist whose style includes bows to Earl Hooker (Through Heaven’s Eyes), Joe Pass, Grant Green (Grant’s Groove), Fred Roulette, and even the Piedmont pickers (Raggin’ The Strings). There is a very clean, restrained, almost unplugged, late night feel to Heart and Soul and many of the original songs owe as much to jazz (Bluesology) as to blues (Checkin’ In). The Dukes provide wonderfully understated support with Bob Haddrell’s piano and B-3 leading the rhythm section, George Pearson on bass and Dino Cocchia on drums. Some horns occasionally sit in, but this is essentially a guitar-led quartet moving easily and comfortably through a wide range of blues, jazz and jazz/blues originals.

35 year veteran blues and rock bassist/vocalist/songwriter. My first love in music is the pro studio, where musical vision becomes reality (hopefully). Although I have performed hundreds of cover tunes and have sat in with many bands, I prefer creating original compositions. I hope to put out to the world as many CD's, God willing, as I enter my twilight years. I hope to have the pleasure of working with some of the best musicians in the USA.

It has been two years since local garage blues band Johnny No released their debut “The Riviera Sessions, Vol. 1.” Time has brought about many changes to the group, including the addition of Caleb MacCartee on keyboard and Tarleton “T” McNab on bass. While the line-up may have changed, their unorthodox take on blues has not. They will showcase their latest batch of “Port City Ne’er-Do-Well Blues” with their upcoming sophomore effort “Modern Hymns for the Gentleman Loafer.” The industry-wide release for this album may be set for Feb. 25, but their local fans will have an opportunity to experience this album a month early at the album release party.
For their debut, the band travelled to Como, Miss., to record live in studio with Grammy winner Jimbo Mathus in his vintage Delta Recording Services studio. Johnny No kept things local for “Modern Hymns for the Gentleman Loafer.” For the entirety of 2013, the band laid down numerous tracks in their personal studio (Riviera Recording Studios). They also recruited Mobile’s PORTAL Studio to create the album’s memorable artwork. The end-result is a raucous collection of tracks that infuse blues-rock attitude with tent revival charisma.
