Mud was honoured to have been nominated in the Best Album and the Traditional Blues Male Artist Album categories of the 2013 Blues Foundation Blues Music Awards here. On this occasion, Mud didn’t win – but he will be back! Mud would like to congratulate the winners of the awards.
Mud has a 4-page feature in Classic Rock The Blues magazine and is described as “perhaps the fastest-rising act in the blues”. A gig review in the magazine refers to Mud’s “excellent” Son of the Seventh Son album and his “intense but seemingly effortless delivery makes the material feel fresh and vital.”
Mud capped a great 2012 with appearances on the iconic British music show Later… with Jools Holland on 20th and 23rd November 2012 – see the video page, plus being featured in Clash Music here (with an exclusive video).
Mud is on the cover of the latest issue of Blues In Britain magazine. ‘Son of the Seventh Son’ makes the Top 50 albums of 2012 for Classic Rock – the Blues magazine and About.com‘s best Blues albums of 2012 in addition to its two Blues Blast awards.
Mud’s award wrinning and critically acclaimed album “Son of the Seventh Son” is avaliable now.
