Blaine Elderton is no stranger to the music scene, having surrendered himself to music from an early age. Certainly since his early teens, he began to hone his literary skills as a songwriter and flirted with the live music scene courtesy of several different bands over a period of several years. Most notably of course were London based Electro Rockers, Jynxt. The band sadly hastened to an untimely demise. It was after the collapse of Jynxt (which Blaine admits "hit him hard") that he retreated from the music scene as a whole for quite some time
Emerging again on the local music scene sometime later, Blaine was picked up whilst recording a demo for the local band he was in at that time. Having recorded a demo with this band (at Perry Road Studios, Cambridgeshire, England), label boss Gilly Lee & studio producer Greg Stephenson were so impressed with Blaine's vocal style and work ethic that they offered Blaine a selection of songs to work on which soon became the foundation for the album 'Are You Sitting Comfortably'.
A charismatic performer combined with his incredibly passionate live shows, which some members of the press have tagged 'his wild-man stage antics', and distinctive, yet powerful voice Blaine certainly has the right rock credentials and clearly his music is delivered from the heart & soul of his very being. 'Are you sitting comfortably' certainly showcases Blaine's passion & blatant adoration for music.
Those already familiar with Blaine's work, will no doubt be surprised by one or two tracks on this album and the way in which Greg Stephenson's music has propelled Blaine to another level, as yet unseen and unheard by the music industry and music loving punters alike.
A first rate rock album filled with emotive, atmospheric tracks and power driven guitars. From the opening track of ‘Where Did All The Money Go?’ a question on the lips of many performers, through to the anthemic choruses of ‘Crazy in my Mind’ and ‘History’. ‘Are you sitting comfortably’ has propelled Blaine’s voice and performance to another level.
But essentially? We hope you enjoy listening to this album as much as we've enjoyed creating it...
