At the tender age of 19, guitarist-singer Brodie Graham affiliates his upmost passion through blues music and his lack of age is certainly made up for in raw determination and ability. Having pushed himself to connect to music well before his age bracket and persisting on finding balance between feeling and technicality are decisive factors in shaping his playing. Exciting, expressive and enticing best describes his performances which are filled with traditional blues, funk and soul but brought into a modern context.
The Anaconda Fest was held Sunday the 15th of July, just behind us at the Royal Mail Hotel in Goodna;
A blues competition with a lineup consisting of Brisbane Blues Train, Fat Tuesday, Jimi Beavis, Mike Frost & the Icemen, MooMooPapa, and Rumblefish. An absolute honour to be playing with such an awesome set of musicians, we were lucky enough to take out the ‘competition’ and we’ll be playing the QLD Festival of Blues in Brisbane and Australian Blues Music Festival in Goulburn.
I can’t thank everybody enough, in which I fell far short in my pathetic speech.
Thanks to the bands, the judges, organisers ( you know who you are ), The Royal Mail and the audience.
