ROSS NEILSEN Elemental

ROSS NEILSEN Elemental

This is the 6th studio album from Multi-Award winning Canadian singer-songwriter Ross Neilsen. Here he completely abandons the singular genre format, this is an album of Neilsen’s influences used to tell a biographical story that spans ten years. Driving blues rock, heartfelt ballads, classic and R&B at it's best.

RICHARD KITSON In Your Own Time

RICHARD KITSON In Your Own Time

Album review for Richard Kitson's In Your Own Time. Kitson plays the guitar and various other instruments here and is backed by Nicola Farnon on double bass and vocals and the album was produced by Martin Gregory Smith. Influenced by blues from the 30's onwards this has a blues/folk appeal, with six of the compositions being his own.

BM writer Clive Rawlings says you need to hear this album, is he right?
