'Sid Sings are a deliciously dark and dirty Blunk-explosion for the True Blood generation. Forget gothic romance - these rock 'n' rollers are true sex Glampires!'
One vocal and one guitar is all Sid Sings need to create their raw alternative Blues sound that has lead critics to describe them as ‘Patti Smith fronting The White Stripes’. Depending on their mood they perform with either a kick drum for a stripped back sound or in the true tradition of the old Blues guys the duo use pick up drummers to keep their live show fresh and on the verge of chaos which is just the way they like it.
They have recently been in hibernation creating their soon to be released second album that has already had tracks play listed on commercial radio here and in France and led Tom Robinson to name one new song “Make Me Howl“ as best on the net and played it on his BBC Radio 6 Show.
Known for their full on live show they have headlined many London Venues including The Blues Kitchen, The Barfly, The Borderline and The Garage and have also performed with the likes of The Jim Jones Revue ,Hugo Race and The Fatalists , Mama Roisin , Yat Kha , Nine Below Zero, Eli Paperboy Reed and Johnnie Bassett . They have even supported Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler from The Jam at The Forum London.
Festivals have included Guilfest, Gold Coast Ocean festival, Nozstock , Avant Garde Blues Festival in Italy and Cognac Blues Passions Festival in France where they were named band of the day and stars of the nu –blues. The press described their performance as mind blowing.
After the band were guests on a show at ResonanceFm Nikki was invited to have her very own which is on every Sunday at 12pm. It is called House Rent Boogie and is an alternative blues show.
Sid Sings will be back on the road soon and as their song says they will shake it tonight and every night with their dark and dirty sound.
“With the help of sultry Nikki the band is going from strength to strength, bringing together their own sound punctuated by Nikki’s teasing and sexy voice and interpretation. Not only are they talented musicians but they are also great songwriters as demonstrated by the twelve songs they wrote for this album, taking inspiration from the likes of Robert Johnson, Seasick ,White Stripes and The Sex Pistols .Here you have a hotter Blues Rock ,adding spice to the current delights in the Blues Kitchen” Blues Matters Magazine
"We're just going to tell you about the very very best once a week, no more time for the average, only the most exciting - we're very very selective, when we tell you it's good then it really is goooooooood... – Three piece band with an impressively busy alt.blues thing going down, feisty girl singer, think Yeah Yeah Yeahs on the run with early ZZ Top. Death Rattle Boogie opens things in a rush somewhat fitting of that song’s tasty tittle, Giddy is a seductively moody slow burner with some righteous slide guitar that really gets under your skin after a couple of spins. Put a red tick by them and keep an ear or an eye of some kind of eye/ear thing out.".......... Organ Magazine

"Mixing PJ Harvey's archness with Debbie Harry's sultry caress. Shining a bright light into the typical murk of swamp blues and revealing its cross-over potential into mainstream pop .Like PJ Harvey and Jon Spenser sitting down and consciously trying to write a hit" Whisperin&Hollerin
"By all accounts one of the coolest things on the live circuit. Causing a word of mouth whisper across the knowing cognoscenti .Nikki teases , toys and trashes about with a stinging raw intensity .Both sleek and hipgrindingly groovy. Ones to watch me thinks " Losingtoday.com..................
"Simply addictive..a frenzy of swinging beats which is impossible not to tap along. Quite simply how rhythm and blues is supposed to sound" Groovemachine Magazine
