~ About the Artists ~
Carolyn Fe: With influences as diverse as Tom Waits, Patsy Cline and Blind Lemon, it is no surprise that Carolyn Fe’s singing style reflects a wide range of genres, all of which she effortlessly slides into, seamlessly morphing from the sweet, purity of a Holly Cole to the raunchy rock and roll edge of Tina Turner. Her life experiences give her the unique ability to infuse lyrics with highly charged emotions. Likely a left-over from her days as a hoofer, Carolyn Fe truly marches to her own beat, with percussion taking the lead in her unconventional treatment of music, able to transform a gospel into steamy jazz or fusing native and blues rhythms. Carolyn’s EP, entitled, “100%” is available on CD BABY, iTunes and many other online stores. What CHOM FM’s Black Cat Alley listeners say about Carolyn Fe: “Indigo Heat, by Carolyn Fe is an amazing song. This lady has a haunting voice. ”, “She has quite a stage presence and pipes to back it up. It’s a pleasant surprise to hear her on air, keep playing her songs”, “ Merci beaucoup de l’avoir introduit cette dame avec une voix onctueuse. C’est toujours un plaisir d’entendre du blues qui est très près de nous ici à Montréal.”, “What a smokey voice she has!
Steve Rowe : Any Blues aficionado would know the name. Acknowledged by the press and media as the “Guitar Hero”, Steve has firmly established himself as an original Canadian Bluesman. Master blues guitarist, he has certainly earned his solid reputation. His recently released his fifth original album, FIVE, came out to rave reviews. Randy Renaud of Montreal’s CHOM FM (97.7 FM) called Rowe a “head-down, have-guitar-will-travel professional who derives his greatest satisfaction from songs and notes perfectly delivered”. He was right. Steve’s recordings have earned him a spot in the Top 20 CDs in Living Blues and Maple Blues magazines, and were a four-time nominee at the 2007 Quebec Lys Blues Awards, including Best CD and Best Performer. His music has made its way into television and film, including the popular YTV teen series Prank Patrol for their season premiere. Feature film releases Teddy Bear and Seven Days have also chosen numerous songs from Steve’s large original repertoire for their sound tracks. CBC’s Homerun has given Rowe’s work a permanent home.
James Green and The Blues Electric: From Chicago to Asia, guitarist James Green has hypnotized audiences. A Montreal native, he’s a veteran of the local and international music scene with performances at the Montréal Jazz Fest and various Blues festivals. James was lead guitarist for cult-phenom band The Blushing Brides which toured across North America in the early 1980’s. Shortly after their first hit single entitled “What You Talkin’ About”, he joined forces with David Bowie’s legendary guitarist Mick Ronson to form Perfect Affair and recorded his second album. It was after his third album entitled, World Beat, with Reggae band DUB U-5 that James discovered his real passion – The Blues. He joined Smokestack Lightning and 1993 he formed the band, Killing Floor Blues. James continues to appear as a guest with the Blushing Brides and performs with artists and various projects such as: James Cotton, Edgar Winter, the Dixon Brothers, Big Jack Johnson, Russell Jackson, Frank Marino, Cliff Stevens’ band Slowhand and on Slim Williams’ album Pulse of The Planet. James Green and The Blues Electric came to life in 2004 playing at venues throughout the city where he combines traditional style Blues with Rock & Roll, R & B, soul and funk into his electric Blues renditions. His music touches the soul of audiences everywhere.
