In the UK, where the reverence for American blues artists runs deep and brings forth legendary guitar heroes such as Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton, the endless grey skies of Edinburgh, Scotland are most definitely not immune to this musical iconography.
Eilidh McKellar, a 20-year-old Scottish born singer and guitarist offers an interesting blend of indie rock, blues, and pop music with a nod toward the new world.
Delta Devil Dreams, produced by Guy Eckstine, features McKellar baring her soul; rocking her guitar with heartfelt emotion in her musical comfort zone with swaggering rock-based riffs and rich vocals. It's as if Jack White and Amy Winehouse took a road trip down Highway 61 and picked up a hitchhiking Stevie Ray Vaughan. A highlight of Eilidh's burgeoning career was her incredible performance at the Hammersmith Apollo with legendary blues/rock guitarist, Joe Bonamassa. Bonamassa discovered Eilidh on YouTube and asked her to join him on stage for a special performance. Delighted, she took him up on the honor while stunning the audience, and Joe himself, with her powerful and passionate solos.
Eilidh kicks off a UK tour this month to promote the release of Delta Devil Dreams.
