Aynsley Lister - For Fans Of Blues Rock With Lots Of Melody

I've been listening to Aynsley's new album 'Home' a lot lately and it's absolutely superb. It's out on Monday (I know his manger in case you're wondering!) and is easily his best yet. The thing that's great about Lister - aside from the fact that his live shows are exceptional - is that he's much more than a great guitarist. In fact, he often underplays and his fretwork always serves the song as opposed to the other way around - a trap which too many blues guitarists dive head first into!! He has a unique, soulful voice that doesn't imitate the great blues singers of yesteryear and manages to stretch the limitations of the genre by infusing his material with pop, Americana, rock and jazz.

His last album - Equilibrium - was good, but maybe being on a big label put pressure on him to make it too commercial. He's now on his own label and this really feels like an album that refines and captures what he's all about without any outside pressure. For my money, there are few other British guitarists around with the all round talent of Aynsley.

Sorry, I don't have any samples from the new album, but here's a collection of snippets from his last live CD - the excellent Tower Sessions:

I know it's "cool" to make fun of celebrities, but jokes aside the stuff aimed at Justin Bieber needs to stop.

That's somebody's daughter.
