Description

Kat & Co - Blues Is the New Cool

Blues Is the New Cool includes eight original new songs, plus the two all-time classics “Born Under a Bad Sign” and “Night Time Is the Right Time”.
With this new work, Kat&Co continue their journey into the Blues of the 21st Century, exploring its relevance in contemporary society whilst telling stories of ordinary metropolitan life. The lyrical content and their trademark Urban sound - a mix of modern beats and traditionally sourced instruments (Dobros, Cigar Box Guitars, Hammonds etc..) - are aimed at captivating a new generation of Blues lovers.
The album contains the singles Bedroom Floor, Calling Your Name and Whiskey and the cinematic ballad Nobody Dies For Love, featuring Blues Hall of Fame inductee Paul Lamb on Harmonica.
