The Blues Room # 289

The Blues Room presents ...
Episode 289, 3 August 2011

Thomas Oliver is attracting great interest from NZ audiences and I'm sure it won't be long that he'll be attracting the same interest off-shore too. He plays lap slide. And plays it very well too. His band went from a 3 piece to a 5 piece for this album and of the album Thomas says its, “more organic, earthier and rich ... and the step from 3-piece to 5-piece has completely opened up our sound, and allowed a lot more creative expression for us, and particularly for me as the writer.” Listen to several songs off the album and an interview with Thomas Oliver in this weeks episode of The Blues Room, plus new tunes from The Tedeschi Trucks Band and Micheal Powers as well as some chit chat with Hamilton Blues Society representative, Peter van Vroonhoven.
