The Claudettes (USA)

Ansambli The Claudettes looming on põnev segu Chicago klaveribluusist, rockabilly ja punki ohjeldamatust energiast ning 1960-ndate souli kirglikkusest. Nad on tulnud selleks, et kirjutada uus ja põnev peatükk Ameerika roots-muusikasse.

Johnny Iguana’t ja tema jõulist klaverimängu täiendavad võrgutav lauljatar Berit Ulseth, laulev bassimängija Zach Verdoorn ning trummar Danny Yost. Johnny on lisaks sellele koosseisule ka Grammy auhindadele nomineeritud bändide Chicago Blues – A Living History ja The Muddy Waters 100 Band liige. Ta on tuuritanud ja salvestanud muusikat koos Junior Wells’i, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush’i ja paljude teistega.

The Claudettes salvestas oma neljanda albumi koostöös Grammy auhindu pälvinud produtsendi Mark Neill’iga. Plaadi ilmumisaeg on käesoleva aasta 23. märts. Bänd on pälvinud kaks Independent muusikaauhinda: parim instrumentaalne album (“Infernal Piano Plot: Hatched”) ja parim muusikafilm (“Live in the Studio”).

Blues Music Magazine’i sõnul on koosseisu The Claudettes muusika imeline sõit, mis jätab sind värisema, naerma ning veelgi rohkem tahtma järgmist korda, kui see hoogne karneval uuesti linna peaks tulema!

The Claudettes is an exciting mixture of Chicago piano blues, the full-throttle energy of rockabilly, punk and the sultriness of ’60s soul. They are here to write a thrilling new chapter in American roots music.

Johnny is also a member of the Grammy-nominated groups Chicago Blues – A Living History and the Muddy Waters 100 Band.
