Album Notes
The music on the latest CD "Broken Strings" by Chris Tofield and The Bluesbenders speaks for itself. This 25 plus year veteran player has paid his dues in full and it shows. His unique ability to relate human experiences through song are laid out here on this CD.
Chris' songs read like a bio of a blues journeyman. Classic themes like "Dealin' With The Devil", "Love Is Just A Gamble and the life long tale of struggle "Broken Strings" get down, but he brings you back up with "Tomorrow's Gonna Be A Better Day" and is capped off with the musician's ultimate pursuit - "The Zone".
So sit back and listen, enjoy and learn a bit of the trials and tribulations that encompass a musician's through life and the blues.
Chris Tofield is a musician who has dedicated his life to sharpening his skill to a razor's edge and who truly enjoys his trade. He has maintained a strong work ethic that has kept him in business for over 25 years and built his solid reputation as a down to earth, no-nonsense performer and person to deal with.
Tofield, a seasoned journeyman musician, has performed with some of the top artists of the blues and rock world. Most recently, Chris was the guitarist and musical director for legendary soul/blues singer "Mighty" Sam McClain, a multiple Grammy Award and W.C. Handy Award nominee and an inductee in the Louisiana Blues Hall of Fame. Other artists Chris has performed with include James Montgomery, The Allman Brothers Band, Warren Haynes, Ronnie Earl, Savoy Brown, Toni Lynn Washington, Big Mike Griffin and many others
With McClain and others, Chris toured extensively across North America, Europe, U.K., Scandinavia and the Caribbean, appearing at many prestigious blues festivals and venues. In 2004, Chris headlined two highly successful tours of Eastern Europe, including performing on Romanian national TV.
Tofield co-produced, arranged and appeared on McClain's 2003 release "One More Bridge To Cross", which was nominated for a W.C. Handy Award for "Best Soul / Blues Album of the Year". He also wrote two songs for the CD, including the title track. Tofield has also released two critically acclaimed CDs; 1994's "self titled" CD and 2000's"Broken Strings". Both received considerable airplay, earning Tofield the distinction of being "the 2nd most requested local artist of the year in 2003" on "Beef Stew's Sunday Night Blue Show" on WCCC in Hartford, CT; a 6 hour blues show on one of Southern New England's largest commercial radio stations, which reaches an audience of over 5 million listeners
As an international blues/rock act for over 16 years, "Chris Tofield and The Bluesbenders" have left audiences hot, sweaty and satisfied time and time again with their intense, high-energy shows. This reputation has earned Tofield and the band 7 consecutive "Hartford Advocate Readers Poll Awards" for "Best Blues/Rock Band" in Connecticut. They have been finalists numerous times in The Blues Foundation's Blues Challenge competition and have opened for many legendary acts such as B.B King, Jeff Healey, Tower of Power, Robert Cray, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Edgar & Johnny Winter, Roomful of Blues and many others.
Since relocating to Las Vegas, Chris has been carving a niche for himself in "the entertainment capital of the world" by working with some of the city's top performers and musicians.
As Chris is quoted as saying "If I'm not having a good time, how can I expect my audience to?"
One thing for sure, when Chris Tofield plays, everyone has a good time!!

What a prodigy!
I first saw Chris Tofield while he was touring across Romania. He was playing along with Steve Clarke (also featured on CDBaby). I must confess, I never saw a man with this much talent! The blues is in his blood. He's a true master of sweet'n'sour scales, whereas his voice beats masters such as Joe Cocker hands down (so to say). I'd give anything to see him again playing live. Also, you can find some short footage featuring Chris Tofield on, shot by yours truly.

"A" class performer who has played with the best
The first time I heard him was in a little club with a bass player and drummer, tucked away in a corner. I asked myself what in the world is this guy doing here! He blew me away with his powerful guitar and vocals. Many’s the time I have walked in feeling down and just listening to him washed the weight off of me. This guy is an “A” class performer and this cd is well worth the price. I could say more but there isn’t enough space or time.

Chris is great live, so I bought the CD hoping I would love it, and I do. He's a superb guitarist, and his vocals have that wonderfully rough but tender quality...keeping the blues alive in Las Vegas is what Chris is about. Thanks, Chris!!

We saw Chris at Sand Dollar Blues earlier this month. Had to get this CD. It is terrific. I actually bought two copies so I could give one to a friend. It blew him away too.
