Bio

An alternative, blues-infused outfit nominated for Canada’s National Maple Blues Awards as Best New Artist (2008). Described by USA Blues Revue magazine as offering up “haunted, swampy grooves, Delta-flavored”, the Son Roberts Band is an innovative leader in the growing wave of blues-inspired Canadian bands “not content to re-hash old blues standards,” says CBC Radio One. The Son Roberts Bands debut recording “You Don’t Know Yet” captures the stories of travel through the Delta. “It’s iconic, all-original music you have not heard before,” says Downchild Bassist and Solo Artist, Gary Kendall. UK-based Blues Matters Magazine wrote in the Feb 2008 issue: “There is a rumor that something distinct and original is starting to emerge from traditional roots music in Canada and this is an indication of the direction the music is taking. The fresh sound of this album features boogie, swamp-filled rhythm and a really tight groove … a real pleasant surprise and I can only look forward to more in the future.
