It’s been a fantastic 12 months for Blues Arcadia, from bookings at major national music festivals like the Gympie Music Muster, Blues On Broadbeach, Woodford Folk Festival and Thredbo Blues Festival to receiving a 2017 Australian Blues Music Award and an Australian Roots Music Award nomination.
They’ll be touring with their new album Carnival Of Fools this April!
“Blues Arcadia gave us a passionate performance and great music, and hammered home the argument that live bands are simply the best entertainment there is. Next time they’re playing, make sure you see them.” SCENESTR MAG
"A highlight of the performance is the interplay between main songwriters Alan Boyle and guitarist Chris Harvey, with musical counterpoint from Parmis Rose (keys) and bassist Jeremy Klysz" COURIER MAIL QWeekend
Combining the legendary soul of the Stax and Motown era with the burning heat and power of the Chicago and Memphis blues, Blues Arcadia deliver an uninhibited old-fashioned soul stomp revival.
Their raucous live shows are establishing them as Australia's most electrifying new blues/soul outfits with standout performances at festivals including Woodford Folk Festival, Gympie Muster, Thredbo Blues Festival and Blues On Broadbeach.
Debuting in 2016 with an eclectic self-titled EP that reached #2 in the Australian Blues and Roots Airplay Charts, they picked up a 2017 Australian Blues Music Award for Best New Talent and an Australian Roots Music Award nomination. Remedy, their 2017 single was one of Australian Community Radio's top ten most played tracks on release and was a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition.
With collaborators and partners-in-crime Jeremy Klysz (bass) and Parmis Rose (keys) and Casper Hall (drums), the songwriting partnership between Chris Harvey (guitar) and Alan Boyle (vocals) continues to go from strength to strength. Their debut full-length album is slated for release in early 2019 and promises to push the boundaries of their unique dirty-soul sound even further, capturing all the passion and excitement of their live shows.
