Lazenby Young Blues Guitarist of the Year, MBAS Blues Challenge Finalist and BCs Best ‘Songwriter of the Year’ Rhiannon Simpson has been flooring audiences with her brand of modern, guitar driven blues since 2013. Her aggressive vocal style and virtuosic guitar work saw her play with some of Australia’s finest musicians including Geoff Achison, Joe Camilleri and Jimi Hocking. After receiving an invite to live, study and play in Boston, MA, Simpson began touring the states in May of 2017; being invited to perform at venues such as Kingston Mines (Chicago), B.B Kings (New Orleans) SoulShine (Nashville) and The Haskell Opera House (Vermont).
Full of new riffs and determination, Simpson returned home to Australia to record her debut album with arguably the most talented group of young musicians in the country; The Triple Delta (B.J Humphrey, Griffin McGookin and Josh Woods). Set for release in early 2018, the full band album will precede a live, solo release featuring songs written during her time in the USA.
