Debut Album - When Lifes Comes Knockin'
No-one will like it
So... why on earth would four people, along with two double basses, four guitars, a drum kit and various other paraphernalia decide to pile into a van and undertake a seven-hour journey to a recording studio in sunny Hampshire UK on what turned out to be one of the hottest days of summer 2018?
"They won't like it" they said.
"They won't know how to label it"
"It's not rockabilly enough"
"it's too modern",
"it's too hard",
"it's too soft",
"it's, it's it's!..."
Well... you know what it's like when you're told you can't do something? ;)
We hope you like it :)
“A modern rockabilly band fronted by a feisty femme vocalist are attracting attention already with this 13-track debut album on shiny. That lady on lead vocals is Nicola Carla and like the rest of the band - Kurt Fox on bass, Dave West on drums and Johnny J on guitar - she was born a few miles away from the Liverpool Cavern Club. The band name was inspired by the Imelda May title and there's some fine writing complemented by excellent picking from Johnny J. We are likely to be hearing more from these seasoned musicians.”

Word of mouth is a powerful thing :-)

The show goes lives on CHRW- FM 94.9 every Wednesday 7-9pm EST and the show has a pretty good following from around the world!
We were thrilled when Shakin Katz Radio got in touch with us to say some of their listeners were requesting Love Tattoo and we immediately sent them a copy of our debut album. Since then a number of our songs have been played on the station which is just awesome!
To put the icing on the cake they have now given us this amazing review on their blog called Slams Reviews 2! To check at the full review click here: https://reviewsbyslam.blogspot.com/2019/08/love-tattoo-when-life-comes-knockin-2019.html
