Moonshine presents… CONNOR SELBY and SAIICHI SUGIYAMA

 

Connor Selby’s band will be supporting The Who on their upcoming tour and he is playing solo acoustic, supporting the legendary John Mayall soon. Connor is a blues/folk/soul singer songwriter who draws inspiration from the American musical tradition ranging from the original country Blues of the 30s, to the Gospel and Soul music of the 50s, the music of the Folk revival in the 1960s and everything in between. Some of his main influences include Robert Johnson, Snooks Eaglin, Dave Van Ronk, Ray Charles and Eric Clapton.

 

Saiichi Sugiyama is a singer-songwriter and rock blues guitarist who has played/recorded with the bassist Andy Fraser, Pete Brown, Clem Clempson, Shana Morrison, Zoot Money, Boz Burrell from Bad Company, Paddy Milner, Phil Williams and Mike Caswell of Walk on Fire, Andy Smith of Hot Chocolate, Cutting Crew’s rhythm section and, John Cook from the Rory Gallagher Band, Sam Kelly, Wayne Proctor, the guitarist Paul Wassif, and Malcolm Bruce. Saiichi has supported many acts from The Yardbirds, Jools Holland, Simon Kirke, Wishbone Ash to Josh Smith, and Kirk Fletcher. Saiichi Sugiyama plays his own material, some written with Cream lyricist Pete Brown, or hand-picked covers. Elements of Classic Rock, Folk, Blues, Soul, Jazz, and Americana combine in the set of an artist whose many influences include Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and Paul McCartney and George Harrison.  “…the touch, playing and songwriting of Saiichi… spawns greatness and deserves plaudits now” – Blues in Britain magazine.
