For the love of blues…
Featuring the same twin peaks of singer/dynamic harp player Jamie Symons
(2013, 2014, 2015 Höhner Golden Harmonica Championship winner).
Their sound derives from elements of the earthy sounds of the ʻ40ʼs
and ʻ50ʼs blues masters, the soulful feel of ʻ60ʼs and ʻ70ʼs British
blues as well as the virtuosic magic of more contemporary blues artists.
Devils Kiosk have taken it a step up and to the left having wowed
fans in recent years at music festivals across Australia including the
Woodford Folk Festival and the Gympie Muster. In May 2012 they
unveiled their new name and direction at Blues on Broadbeach (an
event at which they have appeared since its inception in 2002) adding
many faces to their growing following.
In September 2012 Devilʼs Kiosk thrilled the crowd and won the
ʻPeoples Choice Awardʼ at the Blues Association of South East
Queenslandʼs ʻMemphis Blues Challengeʼ and have since gone on
to fulfill a busy playing schedule under their new guise.
With recent appearances at The Sydney Blues and Roots Festival,
Brisbaneʼs Grottofest and Anges Blues & Roots, Devilʼs Kiosk has
been showcasing all new material as well as featuring some of there
award winning songs.
With a heavy blues foundation and featuring songs with a darker
edge, their sound encompasses all the drama and energy that is so
evident in their live performance.
