Hailing from Bristol UK, The Terraplanes Blues Band have established themselves as a force on the UK blues scene with their brand of authentic, hard hitting R’n’B. In March 2022 they released their debut album “Stepping Stones”. Twelve original tracks full of swagger and style, reminiscent of the British R'n'B boom of the 1960's. Recorded at Foel Studio, Wales and Pirate Studios Bristol, The Terraplanes debut album follows on from their critically acclaimed E.P Midnight Train (released May 2020).
The new single The Ballad Of Ragtime Texas is not the usual fayre from The Terraplanes but rather a melodic country blues rag with an excellent piano accompaniment from the album’s producer Richard Parsons. Singer Nick Scrase can so easily slide between barrelhousing and singing with a pure richness so suited to the blues. His lyrics tell the tale of an old bluesman travelling the highways in America’s deep south during the 1930’s. As always with these guys the ever impressive harmonica solos laid down by Eduardo Allen never fail to hit the spot!
