Neil Robben Blues Project Short Info

The Neil Robben Blues Project is a powerhouse of music, fusing Soul, Blues, Jazz and Funk in a melting pot of musical expression. Described by LA session guitar and Supertramp legend Carl Verheyen: “Neil is the real deal - he’s got heart and groove!” Neil is used to such compliments on his playing - he has been described as a “guitar superhero” by the BBC, featured on countless records for other artists and has has lesson published worldwide.

Although by day Neil is to be found in studios recording guitar parts for other artists, including the recently acclaimed re-make of Thomas Dolby’s “Blinded By Science” and up and coming Soul singer Myles Sanko’s new album (where Neil also penned a song), his roots are firmly in the Blues. “Before anything else I’m a Blues musician and guitarist”. So after several years of people asking when he is going to do his own music he has finally decided to give the people what they want. The project started with just some rough song ideas and the band jamming in Neil’s studio. The sound quickly came together with Mark Simpson on drums, Andy Borman on bass and Phil Leader on Keys. It was clear very quickly that this wasn’t just a Blues band, this was a band of world class musicians fusing the music that they love together to create one hell of a sound. When asked to describe the sound Neil replies:

“Take a bag full of heavy Blues from Stevie Ray Vaughan, add some Tedeschi Trucks vibe, a dash of John Mayer Pop and some nasty Funk and you’ve more or less got it nailed!”
Add to the band the incredible Gospel tones of Tracey Fraser and the throaty power of Sarah Brown on vocals and you’ve got a band that is dripping with retro cool. When you’ve got a band full of players that have toured most of the world, supported the likes of Brand New Heavies, John Schofield, Gill Scott-Heron and many more, played with Legends such as Don Grusin and recorded countless records for other artists you can expect one hell of show. The Neil Robben Blues Project won’t disappoint!
The first single “Eye’s On You” is to be released on Neil’s label Ananda Records in early Summer 2015 and booking are now being taken on for the first tour.
