the third album by The Romanticos

the third album by The Romanticos

Playing an instrument is easy; the difficult thing is playing it well. Managing to get sound that identifies you and makes you recognizable among the multitude of musicians with whom you share instrument, that is an achievement destined only to a few. If, like in this case, we talk about a musician who has his feet and soul sunk in a centennial style as is the Blues, the feat of singularity is even greater.

"Good Vibrations", the third album by The Romanticos is a good example of exercising one's own voice without forgetting the Style.

along twenty nine years of musical career

If we had to talk about national blues scene history to embody hard  work,  art, musical career along the years  putting a proper name to the great Blues Queens  inheritance on this side of the sea. There would be no doubt, Big Mama Montse would be the name. If we had to look for a blues record where the present meets experience, and talent meets good musical taste without losing Blues perspectives while taking one step beyond “Seed of Love” would be the  title and  Big Mama Montse .Band the ones to perform it.

Family Folks

They say lost causes are always the best causes, maybe  the only  left. Two desperados and the American dream  broken promises,  engaged into creating music with  classical  flavour, a cause done in  common and built out of  rock, psicodelia, blues, pop and country, right from the roots with an Irish tavern accent, a cause that could have been signed by some clearheaded  Grateful Dead or the long time missed The Band if they had not been signed by  these two guys from Vigo  called Family Folks already. All the lost causes is her first album.
