UK and British Blues Award winners Catfish have carved a reputation for themselves as an excellent live band with a phenomenal frontman in 23 year old guitarist/vocalist Matt Long who plays with a real passion for the blues.
In 2016 they won a British Blues Award and in 2018 won the UK Blues Award for Blues Act of the Year (England).
The band crashed onto the blues scene in January 2015, with their debut album ‘So Many Roads’ going straight in at no 1 in the IBBA blues airplay charts. Their EP, a tribute to BB King called ‘When BB Sings The Blues’, charted at no 5 in February 2016.
In January 2017 they released their much-anticipated second album ‘Broken Man’ which is almost entirely original material. ‘Broken Man’ also reached no 1 in the IBBA blues airplay charts in March 2017. It was voted album of the year for 2017 by the Independent Blues Broadcasters Association.
This is blues with a very broad brush – from epic prog anthems to stripped back piano ballads.
