Description:

Just over two years ago, when Songhoy Blues played in a bar in Camden, north London, I suggested that the Malian guitar band had “all the makings of African-rock crossover heroes”. And now here they are, firmly established as the continent’s new young celebrities, with a second album that aims for the widest possible international market.

Their original influences were desert blues and traditional Songhai styles, but here these are transformed by tight, attacking riffs, jangling funk guitar work and the addition of brass and keyboards. Then there are appearances by Iggy Pop, who growls about “going to the Sahara, baby”, and the London grime MC Elf Kid, who has been exploring his African roots, while the much-travelled US violinist William Harvey plays on the easy-going blues Hometown. There’s even a children’s choir on the final track. That may sound like overkill but they succeed thanks to their enthusiasm and attack.

2017 release. Sean Webster has been sculpting his career in the blues/rock world for almost 25 years, since picking up the guitar at the age of 14. His debut album, 2004’s Long Time Coming, secured him his first recording contract and showcased his fine guitar playing. His influences are wide and varied but include Albert Collins, Gary Moore, Mark Knopfler and especially Eric Clapton. His vocals have been described as amongst the best on the current music scene, drawing comparisons with Joe Cocker and Jonny Lang. Leave Your Heart At The Door is the next step for Sean, a finely tuned piece of work formed straight from the heart that further demonstrates his masterful use of musical phrasing whilst at the same time showing his ability to bare his soul through a gut-wrenching and often tear-jerking vocal delivery.
