Nine Below Zero's Duo Streaming New Album Online

(The Blues) Nine Below Zero's founding members Mark Feltham and Dennis Greaves are releasing Duo on Monday in the UK but fans can stream the new album online via The Blues Magazine ahead of its release.

The album pays homage to the musicians who inspired them to form a band in 1977, particularly Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee. The track listing includes numbers by Terry & McGhee, as well as Randy Newman's slave trader satire Sail Away, Bessie Smith's Backwater Blues, and songs by Lead Belly, Hank Williams and Jethro Tull.

"We always loved American folk music and Mark, as a harmonica player, is drawn towards blues and country music," says Dennis. "Living with the blues is everything a blues song isa life's journey of struggle and coming to terms with it".

"We wanted the album to feel really authentic and we recorded most of the songs live," says Mark, "some like 'Walk On' in just one take - capturing the performance and the feel over perfection. We tried to stay honest to the originals whilst putting our stamp on them" Stream the album here.
