BIO

A gypsy woman told my mother: “You got a boy child comin, he gonna be a son of a gun.”

“That’s nice”, she replied. “Aren’t you my midwife?”

“Yes, yes” the gypsy replied. “I’m just doing this part time for the extra cash. Now your son he’s going to do great things with music.”

“Oh is he going to be rich and famous?”

“No. He’s going to play the blues.”

“Bugger,” replied me mother. “Well at least tell me he’s going to play something popular like Chicago blues…”

“Well… he’s going to play like the old Mississippi Hill country players like Fred McDowell, Junior Kimbrough and R.L.Burnside.”

“Who?”

“Exactly.”

“Well, when should I tell him about his destiny?”

“Oh, never tell him. He must find his own way.” She looked away and said under her breath, “He’s also going to move from England and live in Finland.”

L.R. Phoenix is an English blues guitarist/singer/songwriter who happens to live in Finland. He plays in the style of Mississippi bluesmen like Fred McDowell, Junior Kimbrough and R.L. Burnside. He is a very fine guitar player, but it’s the voice, the voice is everything. It’s like Howlin’ Wolf crossed with Captain Beefheart with hints of Son House and Bukka White, then all liberally doused in malt whisky and honey. Phil Wight – Blues & Rhythm Magazine

The CD’s ‘The Hollow Log of Capt. Richard Wolfe’ and ‘Live at Blues Rules’ were voted best European Blues cd of 2011 and 2012 respectively by Blues Underground, also ‘The Hollow Log….’ was voted one of the top albums for 2012 by the Collection of French Radio DJ’s. Both CD’s been featured on numerous radio stations throughout Europe and have gotten rave reviews from Blues Matters! in England to Blues News in Finland.
