The Kate Lush Band - Jackson     Blues/Roots, Rock, Roots, Pop 16/04/2019
Think Susan Tedeschi, Sheryl Crow & Bonnie Raitt meet St Paul & The Broken Bones in a bar in New Orleans and get mixed up in something seriously Funky!!
The album is full of songs that lift people up, make them remember when they felt free & fell in love. I heard about a 24hr Bourbon bar just outside of New Orleans that was hidden down a winding dirt road & built on the banks of the Mississippi. It was totally hip and inspired me to write Jackson...
