Taking the blues out for a walk in the sun and the rain.
Telling tales from the lives we are all living - playing music for the moment we are in.
Deep Blue Sea - a London band - but London's a big city
From the wild west west London.. the London Borough of Los Angeles, an astonishing vocalist - Dregas
From the frozen north north London.. the London borough of Stockholm, a funky master of rhythm and groove - tougher than an IKEA manual - Amanda Dal on drums
From sunny south south London.. the London borough of Santiago De Compostella, a master of so many guitar styles he leaves audiences dumbstruck, the amazing Iago Banet on guitar
And from inner London.. the Royal London Borough of Hartlepool, Graeme on bass - he played bass with Tenpole Tudor back in the day and is an established song writer

Deep Blue Sea have crashed onto the UK music scene with their new wave of blues – a small selection of reviews are here:
Live It Up - Funky, invisible reggae, rockabilly, guitar driven fretboard dexterity, pain and grief and Rock and Roll - you'll love this blues tinged rock without any flotsam and jetsam, once again, the SEA giving up its riches. Trevor Turley, Blues in Britain - album review
100 Club, London – It’s blues Jim, but not as we know it. The quality of the playing alone would put this gig up there with the best but this is also great fun; the band obviously enjoy themselves and audiences will always pick up on that. Great performances and big smiles all around the room - that’s a good combination for a great night. Allan McKay, Music Riot
Woodlands Blues Club - A breathtaking performance from Deep Blue Sea with a flawless mix of original songs featuring a soulful harmonic voice and driving guitar - we knew this was something special from the first song to the rush to buy CDs at the end. Andy Davies, promoter
Blues in the South Radio Show - The new songs are simply outstandingly good. The instrumentation is nicely balanced and beautifully played with a voice and delivery to die for. Will this band will eclipse what has gone before? One comment: Given this start, No problemo! Ian MacKenzie, DJ
The Blues Show on Bishop FM - Deep Blue Sea will float your troubles away with their great new sounds, no lifejacket required! Gary Grainger, DJ
