Isaiah B Brunt Trio All coming attractions
Blue Smoke Open: 6:00pm – Show Time: 7:30pm
“His is an age-old sound reminiscent of the kind of earthy blues, soul and folk that held sway during the mid-1960s. His rampaging slide stings, utilizing tried’n’true blues progressions but adding a modern sheen to the whole shebang…a dynamite new roots-reverent newcomer to the American blues scene.” – Classicalite Music Magazine
Australian based Isaiah B Brunt has always known where his hearts lies since he first heard his father strum the ukulele, blow his harmonica and unleash on the lap steel. Named 2010 Sydney Blues Society Performer of the Year, Isaiah went on to perform in the 2011 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee where he was one of the best dressed cats there and good enough musically to be one of the very few to be reviewed in the Memphis Daily News.
Isaiah’s latest album recorded in New Orleans, Just The Way That It Goes, was released to much acclaim and showcases the electric side of what he does. The album was voted best Australian Blues album for 2015 by the North American Underground Blues Network and mentioned amongst legendary icons Buddy Guy (US), John Mayall (UK) and Blues Hall of Fame Pinetop Perkins.
Isaiah will be accompanied by Bassist Mark Hornibrook, a seasoned performer who has worked with Blues Diva Sally King, Queen of Country music Anne Kirkpatrick and the infallible Jazz Icon Billy Field. And also by Drummer & Percussionist D Bruce Aitken, who has spent some time in Canada performing with award winning and Internationally Renowned Canadian Blues artists such as John Campbelljohn, Fred Eaglesmith and Matt MInglewood
Isaiah has been a production guy and former studio owner of Darling Harbour studios who has worked alongside some of Australia’s top groups including projects by Rob Hirst, Midnight Oil, Steve Prestwich and Cold Chisel. He has also worked with Julio Iglesias orchestra, hosted the Goo Goo Dolls and rehearsed American Idol’s Randy Jackson and his band for their Australian tour.
