Southern Avenue /USA/
This year's BLUES ALIVE will present several musicians who belong to the freshest surprises on the musical scene, who have blown their way into the most closely observed circle. The Southern Avenue band is one of them. It started in one of the major American music centers in Memphis in 2015, and two years later it released their debut and the only album so far. Its success has been ensured not only by the quality, which has been appreciated in many reviews and very good sales, but also by the label that has taken them under its wings. It is the legendary Stax Records, a recording company for the greatest icons of soul and rhythm and blues. Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Albert King or Wilson Pickett were recording here from the sixties to name the most famous ones. Southern Avenue have taken something from each other, but they also come with the young energy that relates to the present time. The band’s impassioned vocals, emotional songwriting, and guitars that rollick between easygoing blues and hard rock provide a lively glimpse into the Southern aesthetics and musical traditions of Memphis. The band is Israeli guitarist Ori Naftaly, but the most watched group figures will undoubtedly be the singer Tierinii Jackson and her sister Tikyra behind the drums and the second microphone.
