Geoff Achison & Kyla Brox
Seven-time British Blues Awards Finalist and three-time European Blues Awards nominee Kyla Brox releases long awaited new album...

Blues and soul become inextricably entwined in the music of Kyla Brox, whose raw talent and purity of expression make her stand apart in an age of the plastic diva and conveyor-belt poppet. Kyla can be tender, urgent and gritty: she blurs the distinction between pleasure and pain like the soul greats of old.

The daughter of legendary blues singer Victor Brox, she started singing on-stage at the age of 12 and has several albums to her name, including the band triumph Coming Home (2004) and the stripped and sensitive Grey Sky Blue (2009).

The much anticipated new release, Throw Away Your Blues, takes up the story seven years on. It teaches valuable lessons about the demands of the busy workday, the lack of time in the modern world, the pull of home versus the call of the road, and how to keep it real with good humour and lots of heart.

Throw Away Your Blues is soul-stirring and affirmative and explores Kyla’s multiple roles as temptress, diva, tear provoker and, as the new songs reveal, mother. It also incontrovertibly proves that Kyla Brox is the greatest British female blues singer of her generation.

He re-located to the USA for a time and he spent many months on the road performing countless live shows and recording his One Ticket, One Ride album there. In 2008, Guitar Player Magazine reader’s poll listed Geoff as one of the top ten ‘Hot New Guitarists’ on the US scene.

He adores jamming with other musicians and has developed close musical relationships with many other artists including Georgia based songwriter/musician Randall Bramblett with whom he shares a ‘live’ album release, Jammin’ In The Attic. A jaw-dropping, crowd pleasing guitar virtuoso with a rich vocal style from Melbourne, Australia. ***
