A warm welcome to the brand new Blueshounds web site!
The Blueshounds are an experienced powerhouse quartet, based in Stone in Staffordshire, regularly playing their own brand of soulful electric rhythm and blues at pubs, clubs and festivals in the Midlands and North West for the last ten years.
The driving rhythm section really punches through and lays down the perfect foundation for the trademark
high-adrenaline set for which the band is well noted.
The gifted fingers of lead guitarist Al Lee will take you on a journey you will never forget and to places you
have never been before. Marry all of this up with gutsy vocals and intricate harmonies and you have the
complete contemporary blues package fit to grace any blues event.
A festival-goer at Stone Music and Arts Festival in 2013 was heard to say - ”I just wished that solo
on ‘New Coat of Paint’ could have gone on forever.” Another fan, at Nantwich Jazz and Blues
in 2014 said, “An amazing set. This band has really developed its 'own soulful blues sound –
I look forward to seeing them again very soon.”
The band have just independently released their first album 'Blueshounds on Your Trail'
which, as in their live sets, includes a good balance of original compositions and intriguing
cover arrangements which embrace the bands exciting style. Live in-session audio
and video recordings of some of these can be accessed on this website, including:
'Going Down the Other Side' (Blueshounds original), 'A Quitter Never Wins'
and 'To the Devil for a Dime', (both Tinsley Ellis compositions),
'Lie To Me (Johnny Lang), 'New Coat of Paint' (Tom Waits).
Go on... take a listen. But beware - you’ll be hooked.
Please feel free to e-mail us with any enquiries or comments.
