Now Hear This: Lachy Doley | Double Figures

I'm getting caught up on the good albums that have come out lately. Like this one.


THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Dubbed the Jimi Hendrix of the Hammond Organ, Lachy Doley is Australia’s most celebrated blues/soul/rock organ player in the world today. A player who can pump, pamper and occasionally pound the most unbelievable sounds from a keyboard: sounds that are intense, ferocious and sometimes transcendent.

Lachy Doley and his group have played over 300 shows and festivals around the world since their first release in 2011, including Bospop Festival NL, Montreal Jazz Festival CA, Swiecie Blues Festival PL, Blues on Broadbeach AU, Culemborg Blues Festival NL, Bejar Blues Festival ES, Donnacona Blues Festival CA, Woodford Folk Festival AU, Caloundra Music Festival AU, Atri Blues Festival IT, Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival GB, Augustibluus EE, Wine and Blues Festival PT, Kitchener Blues Festival CA, Embassy Festival NL and so many more

The Lachy Doley Group are a unique sound in the classic and sometimes very traditional genre of the blues. A power trio of bass, drums and of course Doley firing on the Hammond, his vocal screaming from the heart and the incredibly rare Hohner D6 Whammy Clavinet.

To celebrate 10 years as a solo recording artist, Double Figures is special collection of Lachy tunes from his five studio albums, plus two new recordings of Voodoo Child and Gimme Some Lovin.”
