English songsmith Rob Clarke returns to Aldora Britain Records with his Blues Beats and Brel LP.

This eleven-song set from Rob Clarke delves into an acoustic blues aesthetic. Throughout, this modern-day maverick troubadour plays with natural flair, accompanying listeners on their journeys into vaudevillian territories and gothic jazz soundscapes. Blues Beats and Brel is an eclectic collection, glued together by Rob's well-crafted vocals and the brilliantly executed minimalist nature of the instrumentation. This is a glorious and refreshing musical snapshot in the contemporary arena.

For fans of Jacques Brel, John Mayall, Lee Hazlewood, Muddy Waters, and Serge Gainsbourg.

Rob Clarke: "It's a stripped back solo recording based on a lockdown diet of old blues records, beat poetry, and Jacques Brel accordion sandwiches."


released January 8, 2024

Written by Rob Clarke.
