CONNIE LUSH BAND
After over 20 years of her award-winning career,
entertaining audiences in 30 countries throughout the
world, Connie Lush has arrived at a new beginning. An
enforced absence from the road turned into a period of
re-evaluation resulting in a new paragraph of her
Connie Lush is regarded as one of the finest
blues singers in the UK, five-time winner of best UK
vocalist, twice European Blues vocalist of the year, she
has performed at some of Europe’s most prestigious
festivals, wowed audiences from Moscow to LA and toured
the UK with the late, great BB King culminating in an
unforgettable night at the Royal Albert Hall.
By 2014 Connie and Terry Harris, her husband,
felt that the time had come to shake things up a little.
Terry had produced the last six albums as well as
playing bass for Connie since day one. New blood was
needed and first came in the form of Roy Martin, whose
drumming has been heard with Aretha Franklin, James
Morrison and Barclay James Harvest among many others,
and guitarist Steve Wright known for his stunning guitar
playing alongside his production and mixing with the
famous ‘House of Tone’ and TV work.
From the opening bars of the brooding Lonely
Boy, through the radio-friendly choruses of Blame It All
On Me, and the soul of Blue Night to the closing,
exquisite reading of the album’s only cover version,
Bonnie Raitt’s I Can’t Make You Love Me, Connie Lush
expertly demonstrates her new direction, her new start,
2016 has been a great year for Connie, two major
European Tours encompassing Germany, Switzerland,
Austria and Belgium as well as UK festival and gigs.
This year’s gigs culminate in two sold out shows at
Liverpool Royal Philharmonic Hall.
Connie was nominated
for Best Female Blues Vocalist and her new Album
Renaissance also nominated as Best British Blues album
2016. She starts to record her Eighth album in the
spring of 2017
