ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
She’s a 5ft-nothing-22-year-old-white girl from North Wales who gets her kicks out of scratchy old vinyl, roaring throaty vocals and battered old guitars.


Cherry Lee Mewis is the real deal. She’s added her own fresh perspective to blues 'n' roots music with her album, ‘Little Girl Blue’, a mixture of 'forgotten', obscure blues tracks, adding a raw, unplugged feel teaming up with multi-faceted guitarist Max Milligan and producer and former Argent singer, John Verity.
Both Max and John's wealth of experience work brilliantly with Cherry’s fresh approach. Resulting in a mix of warm, vintage, gut-bucket blues with rootsy sparse guitar style, covering songs by Memphis Minnnie, Robert Johnson and Jeff Buckley, these 20's blues numbers have still been left in their original, impassioned state, at the same time leaving Cherry's fingerprints on them.


Cherry served her apprenticeship endlessly gigging in clubs and bars developing not only her husky, gravelly voice but her performance and style too. Taking inspiration from Janis Joplin, Koko Taylor and Mississippi Fred McDowell, on Little Girl Blue she sings with raw power and emotion, hurt and pain.


Cherry says, "Many of the oldest blues records contain gritty, realistic lyrics, no censored versions! I put my whole self into every single one of these tracks, I feel like i'm inside of them...."


Like most great blues performers, Cherry is best experienced live! As well as performing all over the UK, she and her band are off to the Tropea Blues Festival in Italy this September to perform tracks from Little Girl Blue.


As the great hobo bluesman himself, Seasick Steve says, "The only people who are going to keep the Blues alive and kicking are the kids picking it up, these young bands out there - they got all the future." Cherry feels she's doing her bit to keep blues music well and truly alive.


"I put as much into the arrangement of a song as I do into the writing of one..." concludes Cherry, "This is music that I love. I hope my angle on it makes people that bit more interested."


Little Girl Blue shows Cherry at her tear-jerking torch / pure blues / jazz smoothie / soulful ripping best.

Little Girl Blue Cherry
Cherry has introduced me to a whole different type of genre! I was never really into this music until i saw that Cherry had done a brilliant cover of Jeff Buckley's Everybody here wants you and i thought id buy the album and im really glad i did.
This girl is going places! Highly recommended!!!

Amazing Album. So good to hear someones take on blues music! Cherry does a fantastic job of not only making the songs sound fantastic, but putting her own influence on the songs! A delight to listen to...! Cherry really has done an amazing job! With her take on this style of music im sure more people will learn to appreciate blues/jazz. Well Done Cherry! U really have created a truly magical album.
