Previously hailed as a young guitar virtuoso, and a protégé of Walter Trout, Danny Bryant is building a formidable reputation as a leading British blues rock guitar heavyweight in his own right. On Monday 6th May, Jazzhaus Records will release his new studio album "Hurricane" in the UK.
Recorded as a power trio, the new album was produced by Richard Hammerton (Manic Street Preachers). The nine songs showcase the evolution of Bryant as both guitarist and songwriter. The album bursts with power-fueled originals, groove-driven up-tempo songs, and soulful blues ballads.
Snakecharmer is a sad-case. It’s a bit of an effort to try and ride the coat-tails of Whitesnake. And Well Moody and co-always tried to do so more or less – by calling themselves Snakes this and snakes that – but being under the same company as the governor and using a cover that’s somewhat too reminiscent... be it their choice or the company’s ain’t a very good one I can tell ya.

Guessing by the band’s name, I was expecting to hear some blues rock music. Surely, you can’t go wrong with a name like that. That is exactly what you take as long as you play this album. No Possession Blues started out in Sweden in 2009 and since then they have given several live gigs. Lately, they started recording songs for their self-titled debut album.
Jeremy Spencer is a British musician that used to be a member of Fleetwood Mack for a few years in the late 60s. He’s a bluesman and expectedly, he plays the blues and he plays them with the experience that some 4 decades might have given him. On “Bend In the Road” JS uses some American based, Detroit, based musicians a trio that called themselves “Saint Cecilia” and actually without delay released also their own eponymous album as well along with JS’s. The result is a fine mix of Blues with some hints of Americana.
