BX3-EP (6 tracks) – released on 1st November, 2015 “It’s his best work yet – alt-country meets blistering r+b and blues rock – telecasters, CBGs and tremolo laden loveliness…”

Bridge Street – released on 1st November, 2014.

“Knocked out by this album – the songs grab you by the throat and make you want to play them again and again.  Raw power, raw emotion, sheer enjoyment.”

“Songs about life, love, death, happiness and hopelessness in the modern world – a roller coaster of emotions, and a must buy!”

“Listened to it twice.  I had planned to analyse it … with my broadcaster and musician heads on, but I just found myself listening  to it as a music lover and really enjoyed it.  Even the second time around I soon stopped being analytical and continued to stomp my feet – I even threw some air guitar shapes and took out my harp and joined in!”

Trigger Finger, BBB’s first solo album, released in September 2013.  12 tracks of raw footstompin rock’n'roll, blues and Americana. “This is BBB at his most raw and emotional – a must buy and great introduction to the man and his music”.
