Blues Music Magazine Reviews Fiona Boyes Box & Dice

Blues Music Magazine's Pete Sardon has a new review for Blues Music Awards-Nominated artist Fiona Boyes and her Box & Dice recording:

“Fiona Boyes, after having a baker’s dozen of recordings in her Aussie tucker bag, has created something unusually special in her 2015 Box & Dice CD as she uses both four- and six-string cigar box guitars, an insanely rare (one of two in existence) baritone National ResoLectric guitar and is accompanied with items such as a frattoir (metal washboard), double bass, drum, congas, a pocket full of loose coins, chains, and horse shoes. The listener is drawn in instantly from the first Boyes’ penned cut entitled “Juke Joint On Moses Lane” with virtuoso baritone guitar finger picking, slide, and sparse drumming. Her vocal range melds well with this lower voiced guitar and after a few bars, the sounds are seamless.… Anyone who is lucky enough to have listened to this will clearly understand why Fiona Boyes copped the International Blues Challenge in 2003 as a solo act and had been nominated for Blues Music Awards four years in a row. … A fellow writer who had been on October’s Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise emailed me that Fiona Boyes was the musical highlight of the cruise. Pick up Box & Dice please, and you’ll see why.” – Pete Sardon, Blues Music Magazine
