ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Wooden Horse are Ben Church and Jamie Knight.
This English Blues and Roots duo hail from the West Midlands where they met in 2012 in less than auspicious blues circumstances, while teaching their kids to swim in the local pool.
Ben had been playing slide guitar blues and rock’n’roll for a while, backing the likes of sun studios legend ‘Billy Lee Riley’ and supporting acts like John Sebastian and Carl Perkins. Not too long back from busking in Australia for a year he was looking to get stuck into something…just didn’t know what.
Jamie Knight has been a name on the Midlands scene for a long time, plying his trade wherever it has taken him, from singer/songwriter to belting out blues and swing. Like Ben, he was after a change.

So fast forward 18 months / 2 albums and one EP later…
In a really short time they’ve settled on a cut down style that gives their growing list of original tunes a raw edge, they also love to cover blues tunes which give them a chance to display the rasping slide and powerful vocals. Listen to ‘Mean old Frisco’ off their EP ‘You’re in my Heart’ for a great example of reinvigorating the Crudup classic.

This summer their new album ‘This Kind if Trouble’ is out (September 2013). It focuses more on a country blues/boogie style than their debut album (Wooden Horse - 2012) and they’ve been joined by the fantastic blues pianist and their great friend Stuart McIlroy. Stuart grew up listening to live music at the Kings Hotel in Newport which was a legendary venue run by his Rock’n’Roll enthusiast father. You can hear it in his playing, he lends the album an authentic blues style that you can’t learn by numbers.

The album has 8 self-penned tunes as well as 3 takes on numbers by JJ Cale (‘he will be missed, a huge influence’ say the band), Robert Johnson and the great tune ‘Sittin on Top of the World.’
Vocal Harmonies feature throughout, Stomp Box lays down a sold beat, Nationals, Airline and Wiessenborn guitars are all used with the fantastic piano playing giving what they hope will appeal to real blues fans.

If you ask Wooden Horse about blues and what they like, they are keen to stress they are a little apart from the Rock Blues style that is all pervasive these days…everyone likes rocking out from time to time but as the band say, ‘there’s more than one way to skin a cat and there’s even more ways to play blues.’ Their influences are guys like Ry Cooder, JJ Cale, Doc Watson, Mississippi John Hurt, Muddy Waters, Professor Longhair and not forgetting the ladies like Elizabeth Cotton and Gillian Welch. Country Blues mixed with Chicago electric slide all mashed up into something, they don’t like to categorise the sound – ‘what’s the point?’ they ask - ‘if people enjoy it - great, doesn’t matter what it is…we enjoy doing it and that’s important too.’
