Deep Blue Sea 
Tales from the lives we are living - music for the moment we are in

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

 

A few highlights from the last 12 months have been

Deep Blue Sea has 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, 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

 

Women in Blues Festival - Dre sings with real soulful passion totally immersed in the songs - all is displayed and matched by Iago's intense playing. The songs are a major part of the picture, lyrical imagery within many frameworks. Deep Blue Sea put their hearts into it and make demands on the audience, follow the songs and you will be rewarded. Blues in Britain - live review

 

Harpenden Blues Festival - is this BLUES? I say it's GREAT NEWS for the blues. The songs take you on new journeys be it places or states of mind - alienation and loss; love and joy. That's pretty dammed impressive for a 4 piece combo. But combo is the right word. They combine to create something stronger and deeper than the 4, which they share with the audience, that's what great music is all about. Blues Matters - live review

 

Woodlands Blues Club - A breathtaking performance featuring a soulful harmonic voice and driving guitar - we knew this was something special from the first song to the sudden rush to buy CDs at the end. Andy Davies, promoter - live review

 

Blues in the South - 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, Blues in the South - 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, The Blues Show, DJ
