BFB — Elles Bailey / King King
Sunday night at the Blues Festival Basel (BFB) starts out with Elles Bailey, one of the hottest British singer-songwriters. In 2020, the singer with the unique, smoky voice was awarded the U.K. Blues Award for the best album ("Road I Call Home") as well as U.K. Blues Artist of the Year. In addition, “Little Piece of Heaven” was named U.K. Song of the Year at the U.K. Americana Awards. Bailey calls herself a "Rolling Stone" because she tours practically non-stop and calls touring "her home."
Following her performance, the British blues rock band King King will rock the house. Across the music industry, the band stands not only for great music and superb musicianship, but for having a damn good time every time. King King's music is the kind of music that just makes people happy. No question—the blues rockers from Glasgow are riding a wave of success. Their album "Exile & Grace" was crowned Blues Album of the Year by Classic Rock. They also hold top spots in the iTunes and Amazon charts.
