Babylon Shakes start additional group called The Blouse Brothers to show acoustic side
Babylon Shakes consisting of Chris Clark on lead vocals and guitar, Gary Jordan on guitar, Jeff Mortimer on drums and David Elmore have started an additional group called The Blouse Brothers to show Babylon Shakes‘ acoustic side.
Speaking exclusively to Sleaze Roxx, Clark advised: “We basically started jamming on acoustic guitars for fun, playing Stones and Eagles songs and we had such a great time we began writing original material. We started experimenting with open tunings, extra percussion and vocal harmonies and really liked what we were creating. This new material is heavily influenced by the Stones, Faces, Allman Brothers, The Eagles and Gram Parsons. A mix of blues, rock and country soul.”
The Blouse Brothers‘ “Biography” on their Facebook page states:
“Hippy gypsy blues rocking country soul from four long-haired Virginia sons.”
The group’s debut show is at The Pompei Lounge in Stanton, Virginia, USA on May 18, 2019.
