Blue Evolution Re-Release their Debut Skin & Bones

Heartstopper Records is proud to announce that Blue Evolution have officially re-released their Skin & Bones debut album, originally released in April 2020, as part of the Heartstopper label. The 10-track Rock & Blues album is the first official release for the label, and is now available across streaming platforms and Bandcamp.

Formed in the heart of South Wales in 2017, the band originally came together as an acoustic act, but with years under their belt they’ve developed into an electric Blues-Rock band taking inspiration from Muddy Waters and Hendrix to the social commentary of Paul Weller, with a touch of John Mayall in the mix. The band have performed all over the country – they headlined the Tenby Blues Festival, and will be playing a 500-seat gig in Cardiff Castle in August 2021.

In October 2019, David McDonald (Bass), Gary Phillips (Drums), Chris Davey (Vocals & Lead Guitar) and Alessandro Abet (Rhythm Guitar) flew out to Los Angeles to record their debut album Skin & Bones with Grammy-nominated producer Eric Corne, where they made the acquaintance of Hall of Famer Robbie Kreiger of the Doors, who fell in love with their work! The album focuses on the triumphs, trials and tribulations we go through in knowing each other, set to classic blues stylings with rocking electric tunes. From the pain of relationships in the titular “Skin & Bones”, the ways we undo our own successes in “Drink of the Gods”, and the nostalgic yearning of “Home is Where the Heart Is”, the album explores what really makes us living, breathing human beings, not just skin & bones on a frame.

Blue Evolution are a great band with a heart-pumping, head-thumping, mind-reaching debut, with sights for the skies, hoping to release new material and work on a second album once COVID-19 finally fades from the world. In the words of the band themselves “Jimi Hendrix, Joe Bonamassa, Fleetwood Mac, The Jam – we want the next name in that list to be “Blue Evolution”.”
