Incredible Double Shot from Hamilton Bluesman Paul Coombs

Recently, Hamilton veteran Bluesman, Paul Coombs released two wonderful albums: Paul's Blues (solo) and Steeltown Blues (with his band). Each release shows a different side of him and they're both great additions to his fabulous body of work.

Paul's Blues is a ragged, stripped down, raw affair. Throughout the album, Paul's voice boasts the power of a fire-and-brimstone preacher. His sermons are street-level stories and cautionary tales punctuated by incredible guitar work. You can feel the grittiness in every tune.

Guests: Richard Elliott/Mike Travale/Paul Panchezak of Trickbag (drums/percussion), Chantal Marulaz (backing vocals), Bill Good (bass), David Delaunay (keyboards).

Available at his live shows, iTunes and Spotify

Another musical side is apparent on Steeltown Blues from the Paul Coombs Blues Band . While still down-to-earth lyrically, the group creates a full sound packed with energy. They add some flourishes of country, funk, jazz and more. It's working class music to get ya jumpin'.

Main band: Paul Coombs (vocals, guitar), Bill Good (bass), Mike Travale (drums)

Guests: David Delaunay (keyboards), Sugar Brown (harmonica), Billy Daly (saxophone), Joe Clark (fiddle), Donna Panchezak of Trickbag (backing vocals)
