Spanish blues radio program, La Hora Blues, praises Fiona Boyes and her new Professin’ The Blues recording in their Quarterly CD Review roundup, and they will be featuring the recording on their Friday, February 17th broadcast!
“Fiona Boyes has gathered fourteen original blues and two covers “Baby Please Don’t Go” coming from Big Joe Williams and another song entitled “Face In The Mirror”. Fiona has recorded all songs in format of solo, duo or trio and, besides singing, she also plays acoustic guitar, two Resonator and a four string cigar-box. She is also backed by two great musicians like Jimi Bott on drums and Denny Croy on bass in some songs. And, if that was not enough, the person in charge of all the studio work has been Professor Johnson who managed to do everything in real time and without any kind of overdubs or other technical effects. As usual Fiona communicates a big dose of deep passion, love, sweetness, commitment, eagerness, conviction and blues… a lot of blues. GREAT.” —La Hora Blues
