Blues with Soul at The MOST FM
Oscar LaDell plays a live gig at The MOST FM. Blues with Soul will be a unique experience in the studio. Don’t miss out! $10 door entry – cash only.
US-born LaDell was raised in Purakaunui, Dunedin. The second-generation blues singer started out playing standards in nightclubs around the South Island city, featuring songs by Muddy Waters, BB King and Guitar Slim.
Over the years, funk, rock, soul, R&B, and more, have found their way into Oscar’s music.
In the space of one of LaDell’s original songs, the sound can range from a gentle slow dance to explosive and hypnotic guitar solos. Oscar’s powerful and expressive guitar playing and soulful singing act as one to create a sound that is both reminiscent of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s and fresh.
Oscar’s latest album, “Love & Revolution” is expansive and rich, drawing heavily on R&B and psychedelia to tell a more nuanced story with a wide range of sonic landscapes.
Watch out for new projects! Oscar Has recorded TWO more albums this year, a blues project with some of Aotearoa’s stalwart session players coming out July 15th and an R&B project that releases in December!
