"Blue Blood forge forth with an innovatively powerful take on psychedelic rock. The music oozes groove and flows effortlessly from lucid soaring solos into fluid, ebbing chorus. Blue Blood deliver their modern re-incarnation of classic rock with charismatic aestheticism." – Hayden Taylor, York St Studios.

Blue Blood have taken back rock and are ready to roll.

Blue Blood’s origins lie in the heart of urban Auckland. Originally Blue Blood was the brain-child of Joel C Blood and Simon Hole. Blood and Hole decided that it was time to turn back to their hard rock and bluesy roots and formed what is now Blue Blood. Blue Blood has now grown into a full band with Nathan Cooper joining on keyboards, Mike West on second guitar and Johnny Jackson on bass.

"Blue Blood serve up a serious dose of blues-infused psychedelic rock. The influences may be firmly rooted in the '70s but the production and delivery are very much in the now." – Robert Taylor, The Rock FM

So with the musical low-rider’s accelerator firmly planted to the floor the Blue Blood journey is set for a non-stop rollercoaster ride filled with tales of sex, drugs and rock and roll. Blue Blood have seamlessly composed ten hard-hitting retro rock numbers. The assorted love songs tell stories of wild nights with fast woman, encounters of heartless heart break and social commentaries on returning to the times when love was free and people’s minds were open.

Blue Blood have recorded their debut album at New Zealand’s premiere recording facility, York Street studios. The album was mastered by leading engineer Chris Winchecombe who has previously worked with The Bleeders, The Feelers, P-Money, Opshop, Goodnight Nurse, 48 May and many more of NZ’s finest bands. The first single “The Reason” was quickly picked up by The Rock and Bay Rock FM and was featured on Decembers’ NZ on Air Kiwi Hit disc. Blue Blood’s debut release, Top Shelf Woman, is set to become an overnight classic and will be released on the 1st of February 2011. Top Shelf Woman will be available in all leading music retailers.

Blue Blood have released their music video for “The Reason,” a collaborative work of Joel C Blood and Juice Award wining director Anthony Plant. The video has been received well by the C4 audience. Follow up videos for “Walk Away” and “Red Light Lover” are currently in production. These sexy videos feature scantly clad racks, Cadillacs, and screaming Marshall stacks.

Blue Blood recently were voted by Rock FM listeners as being one of the top 6 bands in the country. Blue Blood beat 171 other bands to reach the finals of the Open for Bon Jovi Competition, smashing many bands that have been headliners for years. In December Blue Blood also headlined the Off the Record Festival. A 9 band festival that featured some of the best new talent The Rocks’ Off the Record show has had to offer.

The Blue Blood tornado is set to tear the country apart in February 2011. The band is booked for 8 dates in New Zealand to release their debut album Top Shelf Woman. So no matter where you are in the New Zealand you can be sure that your girlfriends are not safe, ‘cause the Blue Blood touring machine is just around the corner!
