About Joe Strouzer
Joe Strouzer sings songs from his travels from Newcastle to New Orleans and a hell of a lot of places in between. His driving resonator guitar is coupled with true harmonica voodoo and biting songwriting of modern trouble, heartpains, moonlit trysts, drinking and devilment, peppered with a rich history of blues.
2015 saw the release of his studio debut, Bottle Broke, with 9th Ward Tape, a collection of old blues and traditional American songs following in summer 2016, recorded straight to tape in New Orleans, Louisiana. In 2020 during lockdown Joe Strouzer is releasing a series of self recorded EPs with the support of Arts Council England, May & June are out now. A new studio LP is due for release early 2021. “Joe played the harmonica so damn good” Gill Landry, 2 x Grammy Award Winner "Where in the world did a limey kid from the U.K. get the nerve,and the talent to sing the blues like he had roots in the 1930's Mississippi Delta. I am happy to know that Joe Strouzer has the soul and the talent to keep the blues alive" Leroy Martin, Swamp Pop Legend and Louisiana Board of Music.
