The UK based, Detroit soulful blues-rock star Marcus Malone teams up with explosive British blues rock guitarist Innes Sibun for a handful of warm up dates for a new band with familiar faces.
Marcus Malone has just enjoyed the most successful year of his career. His critically acclaimed album ‘A Better Man’ on Redline records has topped several ‘best of the year’ polls and he was also nominated as a finalist in the European Blues Awards.
Innes Sibun was barely in his 20’s when he was produced by the legendary Mike Vernon, before joining Robert Plant’s ‘Fate of Nations’ world tour. He has subsequently built an international reputation by signing with the American label Viceroy, and then Provogue and Blues Boulevard in Europe. He’s an explosive, but feel player, versatile enough to be able to slip from rock and blues into jazz and funk.
Together the two stellar musicians promise a powerful mix of rock, blues, soul and funk, all underpinned by Malone’s soulful song driven quality and triggered by Sibun’s high levels of intensity and his inherent melodic feel. It’s an exciting musical partnership born of the same musical influences, but one that offers them a broader canvas than before
