Eyes of a Blue Dog
Trio featuring the UK’s Rory Simmons (trumpet, guitar, electronics), Norway’s Terje Evensen (drums, electronics) and Norwegian born, UK based vocalist and lyricist Elisabeth Nygard. Their music blends elements of jazz and electronica with pop and rock.
"The mixture of electro acoustic improvised instrumentals and carefully sculpted avant pop songs works well with the two approaches combining to create a coherent stylistic and emotional whole."
"A fine album in its own right and one that may well increase the group's audience overall. "
