In November 2013, Krossborder Rekords produced the “Best Of British Blues Volume 1” showcasing established and up and coming UK blues bands. The CD was voted album of the month in January 2014 by the Independent Blues Broadcasters Association and has received a host of great reviews in the press and on radio. This has led to inkreased interest in the label and the bands featured – all good in keeping blues music alive!
We have now released the Krossborder Kompilation Volume 2 with sixteen different acts invited to be a part of this series. Once again we bring you the new and the established joined together in the belief that something good is going on here and who all want to see this grow into something very important for British blues (and beyond). Vol.2 achieved No.5 in the IBBA chart recently and has garnered many great reviews.
Volume 3 is already in the planning and sixteen acts have already been invited or have asked to be included and accepted. so that will be put into progress soon for a summer release. While Vol.4 is intended to be more roots/folk/americana in style, as the label name suggests it will kross borders in music.
Keep an eye on this label for some great music and exciting and talented acts to look out for.
