From now on also bookable in Europe 

 

Sister Lucille is on the verge of a big breakthrough and is one of the current bands shaping the future of American music. When you listen to the sound of these songs, you want to be there.

(rockandbluesmuse.com/ Mike O' Cull

 

Sister Lucille hails from southwest Missouri and is deeply inspired by the musical heritage of Memphis. She has turned the worlds of blues, roots and soul upside down and created her own genre - Memphunk!

Her album Alive won the 2020 Blues Blast Award for Best Debut CD and also received three Independent Blues Award nominations in the categories of Best New Artist CD, Best Soul-Blues Artist and Best Contemporary Blues Song.

 

With her latest album, "Tell The World," Kimberly Dill aka Sister Lucille spans a wide musical range from Blues, Roots, Soul Funk and Rock'n'Roll in all its variations.


Dyer Davis is an American singer/guitarist who has just released his debut album on Wild Roots Records.

 

He has spent the last 8 years of his young life as a rock musician and recently parted ways with the band Rubber Soul Child. Now, at 23, he has returned to the music that first inspired him to become a musician. As a child, his father, also a musician, got him hooked on the music of the '60s and '70s. The artists that appealed to him the most were the blues-based rockers, especially the early Jeff Beck records with Rod Stewart. This conveyed to him the importance of the blues as the main foundation for the music he gravitated to. Blues, rock and soul are the pillars of his music, with which Dyer Davis appeals to both the "old" and the new generation of blues.

 

In Europe Dyer is currently still a real insider tip, but this young man should be on the focus!

 

His debut album is highly appreciated in the trade press all over Europe and we are happy to present him for the European market.
