short review David Philips from Canada

this is what Alan Cross from A Journal Of Musical Things wrote about the new David Philips release

Funky and smooth acoustic pop with that quintessential upbeat coffeehouse vibe, “My Gravity” plays like a John Mayer/Michael Bublé mashup. David Philip’s strong baritone vocals, peppy backing band, and casually meandering guitar lend energetic passion to this ballad.

review for ElectroBluesSociety from the UK

Here a short review by Norman Darwen that was published in BLUES IN THE SOUTH (UK):

B&T 969 – ElectroBluesSociety feat Jan Hidding – All The Way Down

Another download single from this Dutch outfit with singer Jan Hidding. ‘All The Way Down’ runs to four and a half minutes, with Jan’s big, deep voice backed by a riffing guitar, bass, drums, blues harp and occasional electronic noises. The song itself is a soulful, blues ballad, a little reminiscent of the mid-60s but certainly contemporary, though the electronics add to the track rather than detract from it. Do try to give it a listen!

 

korte recensie David Philips in Heaven

Uit het nieuwste nummer (sept/okt 2018):

Op de dertien liedjes van GET ALONG, zijn zevende, trekt singer songwriter David Philips de iets elektrischer lijn door van voorganger WINTER. Hij speelt gitaar, bas en drums en put voor zijn mooie statige melodieën nog steeds uit folk- en bluesstijlvormen, aangelengd met jazzy gitaaraccenten en incidentele rock invloeden.

new EP on KuvVer Records

today we released this EP on our new sub label

KR 601 – Jan Mittendorp – Baritone Jazz 1 EP

About ten years ago guitar player Jan Mittendorp changed from regular guitar to baritone guitar. That way he could combine bass guitar parts with lead guitar parts . You can hear the result on more then hundred tracks that he recorded since 2008 with a.o. Boo Boo Davis, Tangled Eye, BLu ACiD and ElectroBluesSociety.

Recently he also re-discovered a lot of jazz standards from his time at Hilversum Conservatorium in the 1980’s. This is how they sound now on baritone guitar together with some electronic stuff in the back.

Released digital and available on all download and streaming platforms.

review KuvVer Records on SoulAndJazzAndFunk.com

KUVVER RECORDS is a brand new label – a subsidiary of blues specialists Black and Tan Records. The aim of the new imprint is to release new, refreshing cover versions of well-known blues classics… and the tune they’ve chosen for the first release is certainly that – ‘St James Infirmary’.

The artist chosen to present this new take is veteran blues guitarist JAN MITTENDORP and he gives the familiar a fresh, electro instrumental treatment that complements the sadness and despair inherent in the tune and its message.

first release on KuvVer Records

We created a new sub label called KuvVer Records. This label is specially set up to release cover versions of well known songs from all kind of styles. Our first release is

KR 600 – Jan Mittendorp – St James Infirmary

Recently I started re-visiting songs that I haven’t played for years. Here is my current version from one of the first jazz/blues songs that I ever played on a guitar (apr 45 years ago). It’s an instrumental version of this classic song with a touch of electro.

nice little review for new single ElectroBluesSociety

Here are some nice words from BEEHIVE CANDY on the new single from ElectroBluesSociety:

We have featured ElectroBluesSociety just once before back in December 2016. I think it fair to say that the second feature has been worth the wait. ‘All The Way Down’ has the deep rich vocals of Jan Hidding where his natural blues singing is fabulous, the backing music is stripped back with a potent blues guitar and drums and just a small glimpse of electro sounds.
