Guitarist Big Dez (Phil Fernandez) has just released his 8th album, ‘Last Train’ and, he comes to the UK for 4 dates in April.
He is heavily influenced by Albert Collins and Chicago blues; “Fernandez’s slashing guitar combines Albert Collins’ icy tension with Johnny ‘Guitar’ Watson’s metallic crunch, and vocals like Omar Kent Dykes” Blues Revue, USA.
Big Dez has been treading the boards for 20 years across Europe and North America mixing soulful, funky blues with traditional foot tappin’ rocking blues. He took several trips to the US, playing and recording, which helped him create an electric blues guitar style, that few this side of the Atlantic can match.
“..this is a must have for anyone who loves uplifting rocking blues music. That’s everyone then!“ ‘Last Train’ review Blues Matters.
For the UK dates, the band will include Phil Fernandez (Big Dez) guitar and vocals, Marco Cinelli guitar, Alessandro Cinelli drums, and Derek White bass.
