''What particularly impressed me was his economy of technique: no lightning and grandstanding nor showing off, in fact like the best players, he made it look all so easy, as if he had all the time in the world and emphasises mastery of feel over fretboard gymnastics. This naturally put the spotlight on the music and that’s fine in my book: like I say classy stuff''

''A fantastic performer''

THE BLUES KITCHEN

“The album sounds great. I love the playing and his voice is a revelation”

JOE CUSHLEY, RESONANCE FM

Lee’s Blues takes as it’s starting point from the playing and performing style of the mid-century American folk blues artists with particular reference to Big Bill Broonzy, a long admired and influential performer for Oliver Darling.

Oliver has been performing solo acoustic shows for years up and down the UK. Sets comprising classic delta blues and fingerpicking folk blues. Now Darling has poured all that experience into eleven new recordings creating a debut solo album, eight of which are self penned.

Recorded by Oliver using a process which bounced all tracks via analogue tape has bestowed upon the album a genuine warmth suiting the material, and what results is a set of vintage styled songs with a strong contemporary energy and sonic aura.
