Fiona Boyes - Little Things

Fiona Boyes - Little Things
Australia’s First Lady of the Blues, Fiona Boyes, continues her stellar recording career with the release of ‘Voodoo in the Shadows’. Supported by her Australian band members, multi-instrumentalist Tim Neal and percussionist Mark Grunden, she is joined on 4 tracks by award-winning New Orleans artist and Grammy nominee, Johnny Sansone (harmonica & accordion).
Fiona is a 7 time final nominee in the USA Blues Music Awards and this, her 14th release, follows recent award-winning albums, ‘Box & Dice’ and ‘Professin’ the Blues’.
‘Voodoo in the Shadows’ explores the traditional music of Mississippi and Louisiana, from Hill Country and Delta Blues to Louisiana Swamp Pop. The songs tell stories of respect, partying, tough attitudes, mystery, sensuality, and love. Nine of the eleven tracks are originals, inspired by recent experiences such as performing at iconic Red’s Lounge in Clarksdale (‘Party at Red’s) or playing Jessie May Hemphill’s old bullet-riddled guitar (‘Tell Your Story Walking’). From the opening swampy guitar tribute to her mentors (‘Call their Name’), driving cigar-box boogie accompanied by Johnny Sansone’s blistering harmonica (‘What You Put on Me’), Louisiana style accordion (Don’t Leave Your Feet at Home), to the Hammond drenched closing ballad ‘Ember’, it is a diverse musical ride!

About this track...

As an album, ‘Voodoo in the Shadows’ was written with the idea of creating a musical road trip from the north of Mississippi, down to New Orleans. Referencing the historical French connection in the area, this lilting song is influenced by Louisiana ‘swamp pop’, with the refrain reminding us that ‘the little things are sweet’. One for the romantics!
