    Ruf Records Blues Caravan 2017: Blues Got Soul

    4:18

    COMING SOON! Ruf Records Blues Caravan 2017: Blues Got Soul, featuring Si Cranstoun, Big Daddy Wilson, and Vanessa Collier –

    Take a floor-filling London soul man. Add a golden-voiced Southern States storyteller. Throw in a fast-rising Philadelphia based singer/saxophonist. Then hold on to your hats. The legendary Blues Caravan is coming to your town in 2017 – with a three-artist bill that promises fireworks.

    The Blues Caravan isn’t like other tours. Hosted annually by Ruf Records since 2005, it reignites the grand tradition of the travelling revue show, putting a trio of stellar acts on the same bill for a night of high-octane rock ‘n’ roll. Backed by the seasoned Blues Caravan rhythm section – plus special guest guitarist Laura Chavez, formerly of the Candye Kane Band – each artist plays a killer set of their own songs, before joining forces for the grand finale.

    You can rely on Si Cranstoun to move your feet. Inspired by the vintage soul of Jackie Wilson and Sam Cooke, this charismatic British bandleader has graduated from an apprenticeship busking on the streets of London to the head of the vintage R&B scene. You can expect to hear hip-shaking original material from last year’s acclaimed Old School album – plus fan-favourite singles like “Dynamo” – delivered in a voice like sunshine. “It’s most important that I don't come off as an imitator,” Si explains, “and also that the song I’m singing has a kick-ass melody, whether it's my own or on loan. I love to play ‘Old School’, ‘Coupe De Ville’ and ‘Dynamo’, as they get the crowd going. And it’s gonna be a lot of fun to share the stage on the Blues Caravan, because you never know what’s gonna happen. I hope we can really tear the place up!”

    Some say that great American bluesmen are a dying breed. They’re wrong – and Big Daddy Wilson is the proof. Born in North Carolina, his astonishing backstory includes several years of service in the US Army, followed by his discovery of the blues and relocation to Germany. In 2009, Wilson’s Ruf debut Love Is The Key showcased a voice that could stop traffic, and since then, his career highlights have included victory at the 2010 German Blues Challenge and recognition for his acoustic work with the title of Best Blues Artist at the 2014 Blues In Germany Awards. “For my Blues Caravan performance,” he says, “you can expect that I’ll be true to the BDW storytelling vibe and having a lot of fun. What’s very important to me is to be able to connect with people. Write songs that everyone can relate to and make someone smile.”

    Vanessa Collier is going places. A graduate of the Berklee College Of Music, Vanessa’s pure vocals and stinging saxophone work saw her light up stages as part of Joe Louis Walker’s band, while her 2014 debut album Heart Soul & Saxophone was declared “magnificent” on Dan Aykroyd’s blues radio show winning her accolades as a Best of 2014 Blues Breaker. With her original songs and onstage charisma, Vanessa’s sets are sure to be a high point of the Blues Caravan, while she’s looking forward to turning up the heat alongside her fellow performers. “I think that wonderful things happen when you get more than one artist in a room,” she explains. “With Big Daddy Wilson, Si Cranstoun and me, we all have our own styles and personalities onstage that will meld well together, and I believe the collaboration will continually raise the bar every performance. I can’t wait!”


    With chemistry firing and sparks flying, the Blues Caravan has given fans across the US and Europe countless performances to treasure over the years. And something tells us the 2017 lineup will make it another vintage year…

    Ruf Records Blues Caravan 2016: Blue Sisters Chain of Fools

    4:29

    Ruf Records​ Presents, Ruf's Blues Caravan 2016​: BLUE SISTERS – Introducing Tasha Taylor, Layla Zoe and Ina Forsman.

    Now in its 12th triumphant year, the Blues Caravan is a touring showcase for the hottest young acts on the Ruf label. With past treks helping launch stars including Joanne Shaw Taylor, Laurence Jones and Samantha Fish, it’s a springboard for the blues scene’s next-big-things, and a magnet for fans who want to catch them before lift-off. In 2016, we’ve got a Blues Caravan lineup sure to raise the roof each night as it rolls across the USA and Europe. The Blue Sisters are doing it for themselves…

    Layla Zoe is ready to explode. Like her early influences – from Bob Dylan to Muddy Waters – the Canadian bandleader is a fearless writer, earning victory in 2006’s auspicious Blues Compo songwriting competition, and critical acclaim for albums including 2013’s The Lily. For the Blues Caravan 2016, Layla will be drawing on the best of her catalogue, previewing this year’s new release, and leaving it all on the stage. “With live performances,” she explains, “I believe that the more raw and uncensored I am, the more I can connect with my listeners.”

    When Ina Forsman steps up the mic, you’ll believe every word. The Finnish vocalist hit the radar aged 17 with a show-stopping rendition of Etta James’s “All I Could Do Was Cry” on a TV talent show. Since then, she’s achieved international recognition, guesting with blues heavyweights Helge Tallqvist and Guy Verlinde on the road, touring mainland Europe and proving her own songwriting chops with her self-penned and fiercely personal material. When Ina hits the stage, all bets are off. “I rarely plan anything,” she says, “so what happens on the stage, just happens.”

    Tasha Taylor has the blues in her blood. The youngest daughter of R&B trailblazer and Stax icon Johnnie Taylor, she inherited his musical talent, but walked her own path, studying drama at Boston University before lighting up hit TV shows including Ugly Betty and House. The pull of music proved too strong, however, and having composed soundtracks for shows like Men In Trees and Lipstick Jungle, Tasha broke through with Taylormade: the album whose self-penned, sharply observed material pinballed from early soul single “Queen” to the redemptive gospel of “I Got Love”. She’ll start the Blues Caravan as a hot tip – and end it as a world-class contender.

    Blues Caravan 2016: Blue Sisters

    6:57

    TASHA TAYLOR dans le cadre du Festival Blues d’Automne en Rabelaisie

    Girl power
    Layla Zoe, Ina Forsman et Tasha Taylor sont les stars du Blues Caravan 2016.
    Pour cette 12ème édition du Blues Caravan, de jeunes musiciens du label Ruf Records repartent en tournée avec cette année un line up composé de Layla Zoe, Ina Forsman et Tasha Taylor, qui fera trembler les scènes d'Europe et des Etats-Unis.
    Layla Zoe va faire fureur… Tout comme ses modèles (de Bob Dylan à Muddy Waters), la jeune canadienne est une excellente compositrice, lauréate en 2006 du concours de composition Blues Combo. Pour le Blues Caravan 2016, Layla montrera le meilleur de son répertoire et nous dévoilera des bribes de son prochain album… en avant-première !
    Viendra également Ina Forsman, une chanteuse finlandaise qui à seulement 17 ans creva l'écran avec son interprétation bouleversante de All I could Do Was Cry d'Etta James, au cours d'un casting d'un show télévisé. Depuis, sa renommée ne cesse de s'étendre à l'international.
    Enfin, Tasha Taylor : la chanteuse qui a le blues dans le sang. Bien que la plus jeune des filles de la légende RnB Johnnie Taylor semble détenir son talent depuis le berceau, elle a parcouru son propre bout de chemin. Sa passion pour la musique était trop forte : après avoir écrit des chansons pour des séries comme Men In Trees ou Lipstick Jungle, Tasha Taylor a fait son entrée sur la scène musicale grâce à son album Taylormade.
    Les femmes seront à l'honneur pour ce Blues Caravan 2016 !
