During the year 2014 at the Cahors Blues Festival, Fred and I came together to perform a song named “the Clock”, and all started with that song. Time passed by, and three years later, we will actually came together to form a musical project. It was amazing to me coming from America and finding over here the same unique talent that I grew up with as a young New Orleanians. My father who was a R/B singer turned me on to a lot of good good Soul and Blues singers such as CHUCK CARBO, JESSES HILL, FATS DOMINO, LIL MILTON, BB and Albert KING, and Cyril NEVILLE. Over the years I was able to conbined all these great styles and rhythmes to create my own style. Fred saw this in me and I thought of him on the same way with his playing style and musicianship as a band leader. Fred and I both know the necessary things that it takes to make a great band that’s set apart from the rest. With very good work ethics a wide range of musical experience as well as a great chord vocabulary and the voicing of the chord in the music we play opened up new and refreshing experiences in the music and we want to share that with the public.     DALE BLADE

This new project is without a doubt the most important of my musical career for several reasons. First of all, the roots of my music come from across the Atlantic, so bringing in vocalist, Dale Blade, a native of New Orleans (and who grew up listening to Professor Longhair and Fats Domino in the clubs on Bourbon street) finally allowed me to come full circle on my musical journey. Next, putting together a new band with musicians who I’ve always wanted to record and tour with, came together in a perfectly natural way.  In recent years I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the best American and European Vocalists, from Otis Clay and Billy Price to some big french stars as Jacques Dutronc and Johnny Hallyday. And, believe me, when it comes to Blues and Soul shouters, Dale Blade is as good as it gets !! Having him take over the vocals on this project allowed me the opportunity to devote myself to what I prefer to do and what I do best, compose and play the guitar. This album was a labor of love, I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it.    FRED CHAPELLIER
