Its not every day we get a band fall on us like this one, with there unique style of rock/funk/gospel they are a real pleasure to listen to. There very electronic sound mixed with some good rock beats makes them so diverse you’d be hard pushed not to like them, Think Moby crossed with the Stones then add in some Zeppelin or Deep purple and bang you have these guys.. Vocally fantastic, Lyrically superb and the music is just a mix of pure awesomeness.
Boardwalk Isabella is the alter ego and musical adventure of Singer Songwriter, James C Hughes, former New Wave bassist with the likes of The Banned, Cowboys International, The Original Mirrors, Department S, and session man who has played either with or alongside some of the great names of the music business including Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck, Omar Hakim, Stevie Wonder band’s Greg Phillinganes, Cameo, Terry Chimes from The Clash, Alan Wilder of Depeche Mode, Billy Curry of The Cult, Latoyah Jackson and many more. Resurrection Man, the first single from the debut album, Headed for the Promised Land, recorded,mixed and produced by Hughes, and mastered by Peter Maher, engineer to U2, The Rolling Stones and more, has been played to ecstatic reaction in 179 countries worldwide more than 50 times a day on a zero budget promotion – just the music talking. The 2nd single, The World Is A Mirror, mastered once again by Peter Maher, exhibits all the qualities of the debut release: rock, soul and groove played with passion and hallelujah brio, and repeated the radio play success of Resurrection Man. The 3rd single, Oh The Ground Was Hard has just been released and was welcomed into the world of rock by a rapturous response on the BBC. Last month, listeners to Indie 365 Radio broadcasting out of Cleveland, Ohio voted Boardwalk Isabella Indie Artist Of The Year. The sound has been variously described on radio and in print as, ‘amazing, epic, thrilling, funky, groove-laden, Led Zep-infused and straight out of the Nile Rodgers songbook.’ Come get some.
