Blues rock with an edge
Blues rock with an edge
BlueTouch play blues rock with an edge!!
The current line up is without doubt the one that brings together all the elements needed to ensure they maintain their reputation as being one of the top live acts on the blues circuit.
The captivating Andrea Maria on vocal duties has been described in a Blues Matters magazine review as “making Madonna look like a virgin”.
The rock powerhouse that is Hugh Lawrenson on drums joined in 2003, drives the band and firmly marks Blue Touch out as a powerful blues/rock outfit.
Alan Cleaves on guitar has been playing for longer than he cares to remember and also sings a bit when the mood takes him
Neil Sadler also on guitar has added a new dimension to the band’s formidable range and can also be tempted to sing
Merv Griffin on bass who seems to have the wrong number of strings on one guitar and lost the body of another but yet still seems to make the right sort of noise!
The band play at many festivals, blues clubs and other events, and have released three CDs which have been very well received.
Their new CD, titled “Outstanding”, expands on the directions set on the previous albums. This time around the band have included a number of acoustic songs, resulting from the very positive reaction from audiences, and two new Blue Touch originals.
All BlueTouch recordings are made at No Machine Studios
Well it's been a busy time lately. We were back at Radio Wey last weekend and had such a great time. Martin gets a top sound and we had a real laugh.
We also did a charity event on Saturday and judging from the comments on our guestbook, we went down pretty well.
We have started, well Alan and Neil have, laying out tracks for the next album and also watch out for the AFP project from thise two.

So the new album is finished it's called "Nothing left to hide"...kind of suggests we were hiding something in the past! Happily that's not the case, but the revealing thing with this, our sixth album, is that every song is a Blue Touch original.
Next gig: Swanage Blues Festival: Sat 8 October 18:30
East Bar , Swanage
What BlueTouch delivers is a package that fans of the genre will likely warm to more and more over time, a confident and competent band playing a decades old genre with a new twist that lifts it closer to the contemporary.
Collectively as a band, they were so tight and regimented, with the perfect amount of groove to leave the audience just wanting more
New album released Monday 3 October
