Info for Luxury Hobo

Big Boy Bloater is a guitarist, singer, songwriter, radio presenter and entertainer of the highest order. His take on roots and R&B has impressed many people within the genre, from the original greats of Blues & roots to modern aficionados. He is regularly asked to play guitar for legends of R&B, roots and blues and he takes his own band - The LiMiTs - on tours around the globe as well as working his own One Man Show and stepping in as a special guest or session player.

The self-titled album, Big Boy Bloater and the Limits, released in March 2011, (featuring special guest appearances from Imelda May and jazz-funk legend Snowboy) attracted much critical acclaim. The self-penned numbers showed not only great musicianship but a maturity in style. Bloater quickly followed this up with a brand new album The World Explained, which went Top 5 on the Amazon and iTunes Blues Download charts and has received some great reviews from the roots community and further afield. It was picked as one of the Classic Rock Blues magazine’s Top 50 releases of 2012, also garnering a spot in the Editor’s personal picks of the year.

Big Boy Bloater
is a well known figure on the blues and roots music scenes around the world - his unique and powerful style has thrilled audiences from London to Las Vegas and his peformances have built an enviable profile and following, not only from the roots crowds but from anyone that has ever witnessed his charisma and talent on stage.

As well as touring all over Europe, the middle-east, the USA and Canada, Big Boy Bloater has made numerous TV and radio appearances. In March '12 he was a guest on the Jo Whiley show on BBC Radio 2, chatting to Craig Charles (sitting in). In 2011 he recorded a live session and interview on the Jools Holland Radio 2 show and was a live guest on the Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show on BBC 6Music. Previous to that he recorded three live sessions for Mark Lamarr’s late night Radio 2 show ‘God’s Jukebox’ (Nov 06, Dec 08 & Jan 10) and two sessions for the Paul Jones R&B show. He spent a week as the house band on CH4’s Big Breakfast and has racked up many other national TV and radio appearances both home and abroad. He has played in some of the most famous venues in the world and has appeared at many major festivals worldwide.

Bloater has played guitar behind contemporary artists like Paloma Faith and Imelda May and continues to be a much sought after session player as well as being the guitarist du jour for visiting Blues, R&B and R&R legends (see Reviews and Collaborations below).

Bloater has it all; writing, performing, singing and playing and he comes with an amazing pedigree – he has a career that most guitarists would die for - but he continues to push the barriers and is constantly striving to produce bigger and better shows. He is a consummate professional and also a very nice guy!

With his new band 'Big Boy Bloater and the Limits' (launched 2011) Big Boy Bloater is building on his rhythm and blues roots, inventing a new, fresh sound – delivered in his unique, mesmerising and powerful style. He brings you brand new sounds from his own songbook, a stunning mix of swamp soul, dark blues and twang.

This album contains no booklet.
