Cameron Holmes & The Blues Dudes (CHBD) is a five-piece original blues outfit led by singer-songwriter-guitarist Cameron Holmes (One Bad Day, Present Day Theory) combined with the talents of founding members drummer Cale Burke (Spook The Banshee) and bassist Sam Hudson (The Fog, Peyote Sun) together with John Hunter Combo (Jimmy Deadman Communion) on harmonicas and Ian Maddick (saxophone).
CHBD’s distinctive “Blues with a Melbourne twist” and the power of its songs and stage presence have won growing popularity and return bookings in and around Melbourne, Bendigo, Warrnambool, Mildura as well as a magnificent reception at Echuca’s famed Winter Blues Festival, and 4 bookings on the famous Blues Train coming up from February to May. A truly original and unique band.
“War Horse”, our first single, put simply is about the disappointment that a deity would have surrounding humanity’s inconceivable decision to want to wipe each other out, with the added confusion of said deity’s want to wipe us out. “Make peace with your maker, he’s the one that’s got the blues”
This is the first single from Cameron Holmes & The Blues Dudes upcoming self-titled EP, due to be released in December. The single is available on pre-order from today on iTunes.
