WINNERS – WA State Blues Challenge • July 2013
QUARTER FINALISTS – 30th International Blues Challenge, Memphis Tennessee, USA • January 2014
The Flamin’ Crows would be familiar to blues patrons having performed at major blues festivals across Australia and representing WA in Memphis in the International Blues Challenge in 2014 – a West Australia blues outfit playing a smouldering and driving original style of blues with galvanising electo-guitar playing, soulful vocals and suffocatingly tight rhythm. Forged on an anvil of iconic, historic Delta and hammering Texan blues, the Flamin’ Crows play a stylish, jumping powerhouse brand of electric blues grooves through a complex repertoire of ripping blues originals and adapted classics with a distinctively Australian flavour.
All three members are accomplished musicians with a wealth of experience and have that ‘playing with feeling’ vibe that emanates through their tunes and their stage presence.
