Since their chance meeting in Nashville in 2011 Martin Harley, Daniel Kimbro and Sam Lewis have collaborated with one another in different formats but now for the first time join forces as a single unit. Harley is one of the finest blues guitarists around, Kimbro is a Grammy-nominated bassist, and Sam Lewis is a captivating singer-songwriter dubbed “a modern Townes Van Zandt”. “This project has been slow cooking for nearly a decade,” they say. “We’d write songs in the morning, recording them in the afternoon, swap instruments and just keep the tapes rolling.”
Martin Harley has created a significant impression on the blues, roots and Americana scene that can easily be measured by a growing global demand to attend his live shows, which include a full house at London’s Union Chapel. He has toured extensively worldwide, released and co-produced eight independent albums. In 2019 Music Radar ranked him #5 in the world’s greatest blues guitarist poll. Total Guitar Magazine, rated him as one of the world’s greatest acoustic guitarists, he was nominated as Instrumentalist of the Year at the Americana Music Association Awards and the Guardian described him as “Spellbinding”.
Raised on American Roots music in and around Appalachia, Daniel Kimbro is a GRAMMY-nominated musician from Knoxville, TN with numerous recording credits and touring appearances. Splitting his time between Knoxville and Nashville, Daniel is a member of the Jerry Douglas Band, the Earls of Leicester, and the Transatlantic Sessions, and has appeared on stage with the likes of James Taylor, Alison Krauss, Sir Aly Bain, Cara Dillon, R.B. Morris, Maura O’Connell, and many others.
Nashville based singer-songwriter Sam Lewis has collaborated with everyone from Leon Russell to Chris Stapleton who dubbed him “a modern Townes Van Zandt”. Lewis is often labelled with the word ‘soulful’ and a style that meets at a juncture of many different genres; a place where feel-good music meets vital social commentary. A decade worth of touring his studio efforts (mostly solo) have captivated audiences all around the world. His songs and stories are glued together with a unique stage banter developed from performing in numerous music halls, clubs, theatres, festivals and music cruises.
