"Slim Lightfoot shows himself to be both an innovator and an explorer, constantly looking to see where he can take his beloved music next. Wherever it may be it’s sure to be one hell of a ride!" Michael Mee – Blues Matters! Aug / Sept ‘06
Slim Lightfoot plays blues infused music be it a down home old style delta tune via Son House to a rip roaring Electro like garage blues, taking along a Howlin' Wolf lick or two to liven up the brew or even an accordion to drive the groove. The four tunes available for download are evidence of this and showcase an everlasting regard for blues music without sounding too derivative or contrived.
Slim can be seen treading the Maxwell Streets of the UK and sometimes Europe plying his trade to whoever passes by. Paul Rodgers (ex Free & Queen), Jack Dee and Rick Parfitt (Status Quo) have all purchased his CDs along with thousands of other appreciative fans to whom Slim is eternally grateful.
He has supported such acts as Andre Williams, The Black Keys, Jason Ringenberg (& The Scorchers), & Jem Finer (The Pogues) and can be caught either in a solo capacity thumping his much maligned Stomp Board or with The Backbones who thicken up an already big sound.
Slim works the streets, the bars, the clubs, festivals, private functions, even an odd tune finds its way on the radio or TV (BBC1, CH 4 & Radio 2) as well as countless stations in the States. Himself and the band are available directly for bookings, so if your feeling brave and have the currency, get in touch because this is his life and living and he wants to keep on keeping on and bugging you with his blues infused music.
