Biography

1) Fathead is a Canadian blues combo active since 1992. Its smoky soul-infused style may remind listeners of the Robert Cray band.

Fathead may be the best blues and roots band to come out of Canada since Ronnie Hawkins hired the future-Band to become his backup group, The Hawks, in the mid-1950s. An ultra-tight ensemble, Fathead brings together the most respected musicians in the United States’ northern neighbor to create an energetic blend of funk, soul and rockin’ blues. “Real Blues” referred to the group’s harp and guitar-dominated sound as “one of those rare, much sought after, but seldom achieved, chemical/spiritual reactions that happens when all the right ingredients come together: talent, personality, humour, united vision and a little bit of hoodoo/voodoo”. “The Toronto Star” praised Fathead when it commented, “If the blues were a sports league, Fathead would be the equivalent of an all-star team”.

FATHEAD’s latest CD “WHERE’S THE BLUES TAKING ME” is the crown jewel in the band’s seven CD catalogue thus far. It’s been a long but steady climb since FATHEAD formed in 1992, and the band has been tearing it up on the North American festival and concert hall circuit ever since - winning over new fans every time they play - making FATHEAD one of the country’s top roots acts. Signed to the world renowned ELECTRO-FI RECORDS’ imprint, their previous release “BUILDING FULL OF BLUES” garnered them a second coveted JUNO AWARD (Canada’s “GRAMMY”) in 2008 for “Blues Recording Of The Year”.
