“Superb” The Times
"His guitar playing is a fire hazard" Mojo
When explosive natural ability collides with fiery, emotionally charged compositions, the result is Aynsley Lister; an incredible guitarist whose brand of blues-based rock delivers contemporary song writing fuelled with the kind of heart and soul that’s missing from so much modern music. Whether passionately writing and recording his own material or mesmerising audiences at his live shows, one thing is abundantly clear: music is hard-wired to his DNA and flows from his fingertips like sonic bolts of lightning. With over 100,000 albums sold, lashings of critical acclaim and years of high profile touring, Lister’s resumé speaks for itself and firmly secures his position as a leading light in the resurgence of British blues-infused music. Lister was the only British artist to be featured in Classic Rock magazine’s ‘2007 Top 10 Contemporary Blues Artists’ alongside The White Stripes, The Black Keys, John Mayer, Jon Spencer, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Joe Bonamassa, Derek Trucks and the North Mississippi Allstars. The Tower Sessions album of 2010 was voted ‘Best Live Album’ in the 2011 Blues Matters Writers Poll and in August 2014, Lister won two awards for ‘Best Songwriter’ and ‘Best Song’ (for ‘Home’) in the British Blues Awards and came runner up in three more categories; ‘Best Guitarist’, ‘Best Male Vocalist’ and ‘Best Album’ for ‘Home’ which is available now on Straight Talkin’ Records .

Bringing that Delta Blues goodness to Yorkshire, Sleepy Jake Segrave’s authentic sound will have you transported to the Deep South with his hoodoo rhythms. He’s already recorded his debut album at just 20 years old, so expect great things from this talented, young bluesman.
