Backbone Blues Band

Backbone Blues Band

Backbone are a band that have clearly worked hard at what they do. With a tight rhythm section, creative guitars, keys and soulful vocals, they deliver a sound that grooves when it swings and punches well above its weight when it rocks. Combined, this makes them one of the best contemporary blues bands in the UK. 

Their 3rd studio album “Runnin’ the Roads” is released on ISG records on the 30th November 2018 to coincide with a major advertising and promotion campaign which will  take the boys through to 2020. The songs on the album are Inspired by the Old Blues Men of the Mississippi Delta  and the bands experiences of following in their footsteps.

 2018 has been a great year for the band, playing at many festivals up and down the UK and racking up an impressive roster of support slots along the way. The end of 2018 saw the band take to the main stage at the legendary King Biscuit Blues festival in Arkansas after another successful tour of the Mississippi delta and finishing the tour with a brilliant gig at the world renowned Ground Zero Blues club in Clarksdale which has been voted the number one blues venue in the United States. GZ has been adopted by the band as their spiritual home and to quote Bill Luckett, Mayor of Clarksdale and co-owner of Ground Zero Blues Club “These boys are bringing blues back to the Delta”
