I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Blues Jam - Scott McKeon

It's hard to judge a band based upon one listen but if this is a good example of Scotts work...WOW!!

At just 23-years-of-age, this young talent from the small coastal town of Wimbourne, is rapidly gaining critical acclaim as one of the most gifted and naturally talented guitarist/singer-songwriters on the UK rock/blues scene. Scott McKeon has the ability of fusing generations of blues, with classic electric-guitar rock, to create a sound that’s distinctly contemporary. ‘Trouble’, is a gobsmacking collection of ten originally penned tracks, all of which demonstrate McKeon’s engaging soulful vocals embedded within powerful, dominant rocky guitar riffs akin to the likes of the almighty Lenny Kravitz and Eric Clapton. From the enticing narrative of tracks such as, ‘I Can Tell’ and ‘Trouble’, through to the mellow smoothness of the cover, ‘Talk To Me’ and raw raunchy vibe of, ‘Broken Man’, plus contributions from Robbie McIntosh and David Ryan Harris from John Mayer’s Band, this album delivers all the elements of a timeless classic.

The unique Scott McKeon sound has even filtered through to mass consumer audiences including the Impulse viral ad, Guitar Hero 5 and the soundtrack for TV show LA Task Force. Added to which, McKeon’s work on the Rock Prophecies soundtrack received a Rhode Island International Film Festival ‘Best Soundtrack’ Award.

Sharing performance space with the likes of Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Joe Bonamassa, Johnny Winter and Derek Trucks to name just a few, justifies McKeon as one of the countries most promising musicians. In 2008, Scott opened for Eric Clapton, John Mayer and Sheryl Crow at the prestigious Hard Rock Calling in Hyde Park, as well as opening for Joe Bonamassa at the Royal Albert Hall.

‘Trouble’, exposes the sheer unparalleled talent of this master craftsman. Blasting guitar blues into inconceivable dimensions, ‘Trouble’, is an album that is sure to take a very firm standing amongst the greatest guitar albums of all time.

The album, ‘Trouble’ is released on 5 April on Mascot Provogue Records.
