Rhythms Magazine Reviews Fiona Boyes Professin' The Blues

“Boyes has a strong, searching voice and tackles a variety of blues genres without missing a beat, skipping lightly from a strong Texan, Lightnin’ Hopkins opener through ragtime rhythmic drive and reggae-inspired numbers that also include light jazz touches and some absolutely top quality fretwork. This is an album that is immediately gripping from the very off and hi-lights Boyes’ own song-writing strengths, with only two covers in the mix, one being the ever-popular “Baby Please Don’t Go.… an album that genuinely stands out from the blues crowd.… Professin’ The Blues is an album that carries her power forward with total mastery and confidence, a wonderful offering.” —Iain Patience, Rhythms
