Recently nominated for Best Blues Artist & Best Newcomer for the 2016 Australian Chain Awards, Kate Lush and her amazing band (Matt Roberts, Wes Harder, Tim Wilson and Tony Boyd) will be the Guest House Band at the Sydney Blues Society Monthly Jam on 28th February, 2016, 6-10pm at The Botany View Hotel, 597 King Street, Newtown. (FREE ENTRY!) Kate is an outstanding Blues & Soul vocalist and winner of these past awards: Best International Grand Prize – (USA) SAW Award; Best Female - IAMA (USA); Rudy Brandsma Award (ASA); and Gibson Guitar – final 5 (USA). She is gritty, soulful & straight from the heart. Think Susan Tedeschi, Sara Bareilles with a dash of Aretha’s Soul and Bonnie Raitt’s harder rock edge. Great original songs, an outstanding band, and that is Kate Lush. Please join us and be prepared to be blown away by one of the best guest house bands the Sydney Blues Society has had! Mike Drayson of Sydney Radio 2SM has this to say about Kate’s new CD (and I agree with every word of it – check out Kate’s ‘True Fire’ and Robert Johnson’s ‘Dust My Broom’ on http://www.reverbnation.com/katelush1 ) “It’s heart and soul on a stick. For me it was love at first hear. It kicks arse. Kate sings the shyte out of every song, the band seriously cooks & the production & arrangements are masterful. If it was a recipe it would be high end 5 star stuff. Make no mistake, this is something special on a number of levels. Love it!"
