New audiophile acoustic album recorded by Grammy-winning audio legend 'Professor' Keith O Johnson for Reference Recordings, USA. Debut #1 International Roots Music Report, first review from Rhythms Magazine: “Boyes has a strong, searching voice and tackles a variety of blues grooves without missing a beat, skipping lightly from a strong Texan, Lightin’ Hopkins opener through ragtime rhythmic drive and reggae-inspired numbers that also include light jazz touches and some absolutely top fretwork. This is an album that is immediately gripping from the very off and highlights Boyes’ own songwriting strengths…Professin’ the Blues is an album that carries her power forward with total mastery and confidence, a wonderful offering.” – Iain Patience, Rhythms Music Magazine
