Blue Empress Records presents
Blue Empress albums are now available at the CD Store page, including -
'Voodoo in the Shadows' (2018): New release! Electric band album taking the listener on a 'virtual road trip' from North Mississippi down to New Orleans. Special guest Johnny Sansone (USA) on harmonica and accordion joins Fiona (vocals, electric guitar, baritone & cigarbox guitars) and her bandmates, Tim Neal (Hammond, piano, bass & baritone sax) and Mark Grunden (drums & percussion).
'Box & Dice' (2015): Award winning release featuring unique cigar box guitars, reso-lectric baritone and more!
'Blues for Hard Times' (2011): Intricate solo acoustic finger-picking & small ensemble traditional blues styles from Classic Era blues to Mississippi Hills
These originals could have been sung by Memphis Minnie … stinging resonator and vocals … her music has the ambiance of the 30’s … there’s a strength and purpose to each picked note … Boyes moves into classic blues woman territory ... fingerpicking that sparkles with imagination, texture, motion and ornamentation; her singing has the persuasive ease of confidence. Unreservedly recommended – Blues Revue (USA)
To discerning readers, this young Australian cannot be unknown. Blues In My Heart is not only her first solo project but a clear acoustic album. The lovely Fiona attracts attention with her strong singing and tender guitar play … All Class!! - Dirk Fohrs, BluesNews (Germany)
