Blue Nation Short Info

Blue Nation, from Birmingham, use Riff based Melodic Rock from a reservoir of influences, including Beatles, Cream, Zeppelin, Brit Pop 90’s, more recently Rival Sons and Vintage Trouble, to create their memorable sound. Their songs are delivered by three accomplished musicians, fronted with stunning vocals. All backed up with impressive gig experience, stage presence and great songs.

They play top venues in the major cities of the UK and further afield including two tours of NYC’s Greenwich Village and Manhattan. They are equally happy doing stripped down acoustic or full blown electric gigs

Their most prestigious performances have been on the Main Music Stage @ F1 British Grand Prix Silverstone, twice and a recent festival slot with Rag N Bone Man. The quirkiest was The Tramlines Festival Sheffield, acoustic on a moving Tram.

Their latest release is “Good Times”, the thumping new single taken from their soon to be released follow up album, to the critically acclaimed debut ‘Steady Your Soul’ produced by Andy Macpherson (The Who, The Buzzcocks, Eric Clapton). Two more new singles, Rich Girl & Gimme Some Time will be released in the run up to the full album release in Sept 2018.

Classic Rock Mag "a thumping example of a song with riffs that have, in all likelihood, been hewn from driftwood found on the banks of the River Rea delta itself.”
Having toured extensively including across US twice, the band are well positioned to bring a stomping live show to the tour dates with ‘Dirty Thrills’ February, ‘Weapon’ in April & ‘Electric Mary’ in June
A question at a festival. “Where did that skinny kid (Neil) get that great voice”
