Triple J features lifetime music industry veteran and drumming powerhouse Jeff Rich. Jeff played in Status Quo between 1986 and 2000. he’s also contributed to albums by Stretch, Climax Blues Band and Judie Tzuke.
He formed Triple J Trio in early 2015 with guitarist Jamie Godfrey and the line-up also includes drummer David “Clem” Clements.
The band’s first full length album – released in January 2018 – is called ‘Chapter 1’ and reinforces Triple J’s power trio blues rock credentials.
In this hour special Pete chats to Jeff Rich about his career with tracks from Triple J’s album.
Kris Barras was voted in the Top 15 Blues Guitarists in the world poll by the readers of Music Radar/Total Guitar Magazine. He’s signed a multi-album deal to Provogue/Mascot Label Group and the album ‘The Divine & Dirty’ is released in March 2018.
In reviewing the album Pete Feenstra commented: “‘The Divine And Dirty’ ticks all the right boxes. It rocks hard on a coherent set of songs while drawing on several bluesy influences. The radio friendly hooks and bristling solo’s give the album its drive, and Barras’s fine vocal range adds fervour and passion.”
Kris will be touring with Beth Hart in the UK, 10 April-1 May.
