Lucky Peterson

One of the greatest blues artists ever plays Acapela! How Lucky are we!!!!!   Watch Lucky here with a superb live performance - 8 minutes of musical perfection - electric!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Es8Wim15mUo    And another classic video below:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99fwT8HXUvs   Lucky Peterson is the most dangerous triple threat working in the blues. He has gained a reputation as one of the most preeminent performers of the modern era. A searing lead guitarist, fantastic organist, and first-rate vocalist, Lucky’s many talents are truly mind-boggling.   His career began when he was just a child. Growing up in Buffalo, NY, Peterson was exposed to music his whole life; his father owned The Governor’s Inn, one of the area’s most renowned blues clubs. Willie Dixon produced Peterson’s first record when he was but five years old, the R&B hit, “1-2-3-4.” This resulted in television appearances for the blues prodigy on such shows as The Tonight Show, The Ed Sullivan Show, and What’s My Line.   As a teenager he attended Buffalo Academy of Performing Arts before paying dues in the bands of Etta James and Otis Rush. One of the most versatile players working in the blues, Peterson has since performed with a long list of greats, including B.B. King and Albert Collins. His 1993 Verve debut I’m Ready announced the arrival of a new force in the blues, while his 1996 collaboration with the legendary Mavis Staples saw him displaying his gospel chops and influences. Peterson’s previous dates also include 1994's Beyond Cool, 1996's Lifetime, 1997's Move (all on Verve), and 1999's Lucky Peterson, his first for Blue Thumb Records.   In addition to establishing himself through these recordings, Peterson has made his name through his electrifying live performances, which are the attributes of a legend.   "If there's a better night in Tyneside this year the shock to the system will likely precipitate musical paralysis." - Steve T's Sage Gatehead review on Bebopspokenhere Blogspot.   "Tonight, Lucky Peterson took Newcastle to church leaving the stage to rapturous applause. His performance is one of our highlights of this year’s SummerTyne Americana Festival." - National Rock Review.   "A Great Artist!" and "The Don" - Mark Ede, BiGiAm PR

Janet Devlin

Northern Irish singer-songwriter Janet Devlin grew up outside the village of Gortin in County Tyrone, the only girl and youngest of four in her family. She thrived on a diet of watching Kerrang! TV and taking regular bus rides to local record stores in nearby Omagh. Fuelled by a love of bands like Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chili Peppers and inspired by their songwriting, hidden away in her parents’ shed she taught herself to play instruments by ear and penned her own songs where nobody else could hear her sing. “I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, as long as my mum remembers,” Janet says. “My gran recalls me writing songs when I was five. If there was a musical instrument around I would want to play it, but I am ‘sound shy’ so I’d go to the shed where there was a big pool table as I didn’t want my parents to hear what I was doing.” Desperate to learn to play the drums, when her parents refused her the money to buy her own kit she resolutely entered local singing competitions to win cash prizes and pay for her drums with the proceeds. Her musicality and determination flourished and as a consequence, the songs she posted to her YouTube channel gained an unexpected but welcome fan base who were ready to support her in the next stage of her music career. In 2011, she caught the public’s attention on Series 8 of The X Factor, where she consistently received the highest consecutive public vote out of all the contestants. Janet’s a big fan of cartoons (she’s obsessed with ‘Adventure Time’), gaming, Netflix, poetry and horse riding. Her quirky yet shy nature has won her a huge online following of fans that call themselves… The Devlinators, what else! Running With Scissors Janet’s debut album Running With Scissors was released in June last year reaching number one on the UK Indie Breakers chart. This 10-track debut is full of folk-driven pop songs and heart-touching ballads, which perfectly showcase her unique and enchanting vocals. The tracks are mostlyauthored by Janet and were recorded up in a staggering 6 weeks; but hidden around the corner you’ll find featured co-writes with Newton Faulkner (“Creatures Of The Night” and “Hide And Seek”) and Jack Savoretti (“Delicate”) nestled alongside a surprising and sensitive cover of The Cure’s “Friday I’m In Love”. Janet’s other influences include Imogen Heap, Turin Brakes, Adele, Mumford & Sons, Avril Lavigne, Regina Spektor and Florence & The Machine. As a result the album is full of rolling percussion, lush harmonies, string sections and acoustic guitars. There’s even a hint of Jack Johnson thrown in there on the track “Lifeboat”. Running With Scissors is a soulful, passionate album about growing up, becoming independent and dealing with a whole new range of emotions. The album was released in North America on 10 February 2015. This successful launch across the pond has led to Janet leap-frogging the Atlantic several times already this year. She recently toured her album across the East Coast, building on her already strong US fan base, and has plans to return before the year is out. Always keen to engage with her followers across the world, Janet’s been regularly performing using the online platform ‘Stage it’. This live music streaming network means viewers get a front row seat to her shows – she’ll often the take to the stage well aftermidnight in the UK to make sure she performs across as many time zones as possible. Duvet Daze & December Daze EPs To keep the hungry Devlinators fed and answering the call to so many requests, Janet slipped back into the studio to record a covers EP entitled ‘Duvet Daze’. It’s a small collection of some of her favourite artists and songs including tracks by 10cc and Ed Sheeran. Since then, she’s been back in the studio again recording more music and this November will see the release of a festive brother to ‘Duvet Daze’. The new EP ‘December Daze’ is an assortment of original songs and a couple of seasonal chestnuts thrown in to the merry mix. One of the tracks, ‘Happy Holidays’, involves Janet playing drums, percussion, ukulele, glockenspiel and has a guest appearance from a choir made up of her merchandise warehouse team!  Now at the tender age of twenty, Janet is busy writing for album number two and broadening her repertoire. Placing a strong emphasis on the emotion associated with each song, her maturity is speaking volumes on her latest material. With a rapidly expanding songbook Janet aims to be back in the studio in the New Year to start recording her new masterpiece ‘Holy Water’. Exciting times ahead! www.janetdevlin.com https://www.facebook.com/thejanetdevlin https:[email protected] https://www.youtube.com/user/janetdevlin/videos
