The new album from Brighton-based Blues virtuoso Will Johns is out now!
Characterised by a no frills approach, and very little in the way of production and effects, Bluesdaddy offers a lovingly chosen collection of 11 authentic, raw-sounding blues classics and one original – the title track.
Paying homage to blues greats from BB King and Robert Johnson to Peter Green and Ry Cooder, Bluesdaddy exemplifies Johns’ sound as one that’s both cutting-edge and steeped in blues history. He says: “In the blues world it is natural for an artist to play the standards. Here, I’ve taken classic songs that everyone knows and loves and put my own stamp on things.”
The album has been selected as one of the Independent British Blues Broadcasters Associations’ ‘Albums of the Month’ and praise has poured in from all corners of the Blues world since the its release on 22 April 2021.
“By far the most raw and perfect combination of both traditional blues and modern blues” – Christian Hansen (The Monday Morning Blues, Chicago)

“Nothing but fun from end to end and deserves a spot in all of our record collections.” – Mike O’Cull (Rock and Blues Muse)
