Own La­bel

You can be sure the lec­turer at your lo­cal mu­sic col­lege knows what he’s talk­ing about when he’s out gig­ging suc­cess­fully with his own band. That’s ex­actly what Kris Bar­ras does. With bassist Ricky Mitchell and Jon Perrin on drums, this blues trio is just be­gin­ning to catch the at­ten­tion of ra­dio and the press and lis­ten­ing to this al­bum it’s easy to see why. The band has a no-non­sense ap­proach to their mu­sic and a de­sire for get­ting the feel of each track ex­actly right rather than try­ing to be clever or mu­si­cally con­tro­ver­sial. As a re­sult they are a tight and ca­pa­ble unit, with a large dose of in­stant ap­peal, par­tic­u­larly no­tice­able on tracks like Watch­ing Over Me, one of the al­bum’s slower num­bers. Kris is a nat­u­ral blues gui­tarist with a great feel, and he’s got the right voice for this genre. This is def­i­nitely worth check­ing out, as is the band in a live sit­u­a­tion. So visit www. kris­bar­ras­band.com to see if they’re play­ing any­where near you.
