Fiona Boyes: Box & Dice is “truly excellent”

Blues Magazine features Fiona Boyes: Box & Dice in a new review by critic Iain Patience:

“Fiona Boyes is that rare thing, a female blues guitarist/singer/songwriter and an Australian. ‘Box and Dice’ is her first release under the US Bay-area Reference Recordings label where she’s in good company alongside the likes of Doug MacLeod, Lloyd Jones and others. And, like most Reference recordings, the studio quality is high with a splendid warm, empathic sound and glow. Almost all of the eleven tracks featured here are written by Boyes who clearly knows her stuff and pitches well in the traditional blues field. There’s no doubt, and no missing, the inspired cigar-box and resonator input in this mix and Boyes’s picking is strong and full of purpose and power while her growling vocals deliver a steady punch and display a real depth, strength and direction. … A truly excellent release from a guitar master of pure class.” —Iain Patience, Blues Magazine
