We are happy here at Little Paradise to welcome Joe Strouzer to the family. He sings songs from his travels from Newcastle to New Orleans and a hell of a lot of places in between. His driving resonator guitar is coupled with true harmonica voodoo and biting songwriting of modern trouble, heartpains, moonlit trysts, drinking and devilment, peppered with a rich history of blues.
On harmonica Joe was picked as London's best busker by Vice Magazine, has supported the late blues guitar legend Johnny Winter and performed all over the UK, USA and Europe including London's Royal Festival Hall, Divan Du Monde in Paris, Made In America Festival in Los Angeles and Glastonbury Festival.
2015 saw the release of his studio debut, Bottle Broke, with 9th Ward Tape, a collection of old blues and traditional American songs following in summer 2016, recorded straight to tape in New Orleans, Louisiana.
"The only British guy I've ever liked" Blind Texas Marlin
"Where in the world did a limey kid from the U.K. get the nerve,and the talent to sing the blues like he had roots in the 1930's Mississippi Delta. I am happy to know that Joe Strouzer has the soul and the talent to keep the blues alive" Leroy Martin, Swamp Pop Legend and Louisiana Board of Music.
