The Neil Robben Blues Project is a powerhouse of music, fusing Soul, Blues, Jazz and Funk in a melting pot of musical expression. Described by LA session guitar and Supertramp legend Carl Verheyen: “Neil is the real deal – he’s got heart and groove!”
Neil is used to such compliments on his playing – he has been described as a “guitar superhero” by the BBC, featured on countless records for other artists and has has lesson published worldwide. Although by day Neil is to be found in studios recording guitar parts for other artists, including the recently acclaimed re-make of Thomas Dolby’s “Blinded By Science” and up and coming Soul singer Myles Sanko’s new album (where Neil also penned a song), his roots are firmly in the Blues. “Before anything else I’m a Blues musician and guitarist”.
So after several years of people asking when he is going to do his own music he has finally decided to give the people what they want. “Take a bag full of heavy Blues from Stevie Ray Vaughan, add some Tedeschi Trucks vibe, a dash of John Mayer Pop and some nasty Funk and you’ve more or less got it nailed!” Add to the band the throaty power of Sarah Brown on vocals and you’ve got a band that is dripping with retro cool. When you’ve got a band full of players that have toured most of the world, supported the likes of Brand New Heavies, John Schofield, Gill Scott-Heron and many more, played with Legends such as Don Grusin and recorded countless records for other artists you can expect one hell of show. The Neil Robben Blues Project won’t disappoint!
