Australian Blues/ Roots/ Country band 'Blue Shaddy' are a band with connections, given that founding members, Jim McClelland, (guitarist singer/songwriter) Graham (Belly) McClelland (harmonica) and Sandy McClelland ( bass guitarist) are family.
Born and bred in the Western Australian town of Kellerberrin these three have not lost that rustic, relaxed country charm that has endeared them to so many. Known for their infectious amalgam of blues /roots, come country played with an energetic physical presence and power that leaves you with a broad smile and a new found energy.
'Blue Shaddy' have just released their 4th album 'Across the Road', an impressive batch of songs conveying strong expression of life in the moment,.Diving deeper into the explorations of family / self and relationships. Jim returns to the electric guitar for a number of songs and some very tasty slide playing throughout the album which leaves you with a strong sense that 'Blue Shaddy' have returned to their roots, but this time in a more mature and comfortable place with their songwriting.
