We’re delighted to be working with Left Lane Cruiser – this time, at the Deaf Institute!

Indiana’s trash-blues outfit Left Lane Cruiser is back with an album of high-energy R&B. Claw Machine Wizard is a return to the band’s two-man format, and features corky barn burners like Claw Machine Wizard and Booga Chaka, alongside punked-out blues numbers such as Burn Em Brew and High Maintenance. The album even includes a reggae/soul-influenced ballad titled Lay Down, showing that the boys can step out of their comfort zone.

Headed by slide guitar extraordinaire Freddy J IV, and backed by drumming machine Pete Dio, Left Lane Cruiser have been making records for over a decade, and along with their music being featured in many hit television series such as Banshee, Breaking Bad and Nashville, they have been receiving critical acclaim across the globe.

‘It’s so rare to hear music these days that’s actually transgressive, in-your-face and unapologetic. You know, just like the blues used to be’ – Americana Show

Local support comes from Mike West. Mike West has a reputation as an honest and engaging performer, trading in his electric guitar for an acoustic and paying homage to his love of delta blues, folk and country while remaining true to his metal and rock root. An honest and open musician, Mike is constantly improving through his song writing and live performances, developing a unique blend of optimistic and realistic world views with a driving rhythm of acoustic music that pays tribute to his array of influences while sounding unlike any other acoustic act around. Currently touring Europe and recording his first full length record, Mike West is ready to establish himself as one of the UK’s top Alt Country artists.
