Sydney’s Simon Kinny-Lewis Band launch their brand new album ‘Bad Whiskey’ with special guests The Kevin Buckingham Band plus Tim Hulsman.

This band’s own original brand of contemporary blues and rock has created a loyal fan-base of enthusiasts around the globe enabling them to hook up with highly regarded international musicians such as Chris Cain, Anton Davidyants, Nate Ginsberg (Herbie Hancock’s Monster Band) Christian Howes, Dwayne Pate (Robben Ford Band), Simeon Cain (Henry Rollins) and more.

The band’s impressive songwriting, soulful vocals, and world-class musicianship is all brought to the fore on this fabulous new release. The album was recorded by Sean Rudd at The Vault Studios in Sydney with Simon (guitar and vocals), Tony Boyd (drums), Rob Ewan (bass), and Shannon Stitt (keys), plus a highly valued contribution from slide guitarist Brett Garsed (John Farnham Band). With final mixing and mastering done by Simon Cotsworth (Seal, Santana, George Benson), ‘Bad Whiskey’ is destined to have an impact on audiences far and wide, as did the previous album ‘Catfish’ which reached the number 1 position on the Australian Blues and Roots Charts.

"Simon’s releases never cease to amaze me! Love the writing, and the players. Simon’s guitar talents truly shine as he effortlessly navigates through tricky progressions with fire, grace and taste!" - T.J. Helmerich, Producer/Engineer for artists Steve Vai, Victor Wooten, and Tribal Tech

"Great man. Your voice has a little Bonnamassa in it...which is cool. Love the tune too. Killer solo!" - Steve Lukather (Guitarist for Toto, Ringo Starr) comments on Simon Kinny-Lewis’ 2016 “Street Blues” album.

"What I look for is timing and performance..and Simon is top on both of those." - Simon Cotsworth, Producer/Engineer Seal, Santana, Benson, Ritenour and Simon Kinny-Lewis
