Big Apple Blues – Live At O’Flaherty’s (2012)


Release Date:November 27, 2012
Genre: Blues, Swamp Blues, Blues Rock
Label: Stone Tone Records
USA (New York City)


Fourth album by New York’s TOP blues cats whose previous album (Big Apple Blues: “Brooklyn Blues”, StoneToneRecords, Inc) was voted # 10 out of 100 best recent blues releases by Real Blues Magazine. “Live at O’Flaherty’s” captures raucous, sweltering, energy-oozing live performance of Big Apple Blues in a NYC club. To top it off, the CD was recorded unlike any other album in the last 3 decades – using old school, brutally revealing ½” vintage 70’s stereo Ampex tape recorder with virtually no postproduction. The result is – Blues like it is meant to be – true to the bone and free of studio tricks! Turn up loud and enjoy!

Great-Britain-180-animated-flag-gifsOriginal Release Date: March 12, 2014
Genre: Blues, Swamp Blues Rock
Label: Howling Owl
UK (London)


To describe Howling Owl as a disparate bunch would be something of an understatement. Varying wildly in both age and geographical roots, this quartet, who have finally found a home in North London, reflect their Heinz 57 personalities through their music.A hybrid mix of blues, folk, and deep-south swamp rock are all very much part of the Owl experience.There is however, something quintessentially English about Howling Owl.In short, if you’re after a blinding night out and love your Dr. Hook as well as your Dr. Feelgood, you should make a date with Howling Owl.

Line up:

Nick Powell: Howl, Harp, Slide and Rhythm Guitars
Ian Bryant: Lead Guitar
Toby Opperman: Bass, Howl
Matthew Brown: Drums, Howl
Malcolm Haines: Keyboards
