Storm Warning

One of Britain’s most talented and well respected Blues bands….. a distinctive blend of contemporary blues, rock that creates their trademark slick and classy sound.” 

Blues Matters magazine

The band to date have recorded two  albums and both have been consistent sellers and both have reached  the Amazon Top 50 for Blues CDs.

Storm Warning’s debut album, ‘Breaking Out’, received excellent reviews including  Blues In Britain (10  out of 10 rating), “In essence this CD is a collection of fine songs by fine musicians, well worth adding to the collection and a cracking first release.”Blues in Britain magazine

‘Something Real’, the latest album, has eight superbly crafted original songs and one Lucky Peterson cover. It was recorded at M.A.R.S Studios by Martin Atkinson who has worked on albums by Buddy Guy, Lucky Peterson, Deborah Coleman and  Michael Hill for the JSP label.

A track from the ‘Something Real’ album appeared on the front cover CD of Classic Rock magazine. The album also won ‘Best Album of 2008’ in the Digital Blues Awards.

Both CDs are available throughout the UK, at all good record shops and available online at music websites including Amazon, HMV, Play.com Blues CD Store, itunes etc.

The  Paul Jones BBC Radio 2 Blues programme recorded and broadcast a live Storm Warning session and more recently the legendary Chris Farlowe has recorded the Storm Warning song from the ‘Breaking Out’ album, ‘The Woman? Or The Blues?’ This appears on his latest CD ‘Hotel Eingang’.

Storm Warning’s live performances are powerful, leading one blues journalist to write in  Blues in Britain magazine; 

“This is a tight, classy outfit that should be on every promoter’s wish list.”

Storm Warning appear at Blues clubs and festivals in the UK and Europe and receive constant acclaim;

“They've certainly hit the nail on the head in designing this set of, principally, original material and this fresh approach, expertly executed by a great team of musicians, was more than appreciated by the members, indeed the feedback received, both at the event and follow up e-mail, has been quite phenomenal!” –  R. Dobney, Bottleneck Blues Club

“For all their rocking they’d actually remembered it was about the Blues! A cracking set…..This was a much needed band for the Festival’s Monday” Blues Matters review from the Great British R&B Festival in Colne

Their popularity is increasing further a field with their first festival appearance at the Rawa Blues Festival, and the festival was screened on national TV in Poland. The band were on the main billing with award winning Janvia Magness  and The Ayslum Street Spankers from the USA. Other European tours to date have included France and Holland and the band are planning many more European dates.

“England’s five-piece Storm Warning bring a contemporary feel to classic blues and blues-rock…. Bob Moore ’s guitar work is tasteful.” Blues Revue USA

In Short - Quotes from CD reviews – Storm Warning ‘Something Real’

“Clever, complex and compelling…this is a progressive album that sounds relatively distinct from any predecessors. An impressive assured set.” - Blues in Britain magazine

“Blues workout par excellence, this British group’s second album oozes class……..Love to see them play live – this is joyous, uplifting stuff” - Sunday Express

“This group sounds pro, looks pro and completely avoids sterility by taking care with their material….There is nothing on this disc that the band cannot deliver live on stage.” P. Sargeant  www.fairhearing.co.uk

"… Their song writing ability is a strong point with many numbers, I suspect, destined to become much loved standards. A while ago, on the strength of their CD, I described Storm Warning as cogent and cookin’. Live, they are all that and more." Linda Fisher
