J Lee and the Hoodoo Skulls yank the eyeballs out of contemporary blues rock on single 2 Bit Lovers!
J Lee and the Hoodoo Skulls are an instantly addictive contemporary blues rock band projecting dirty guitar riffs, stomping swamp percussion, and gut wrenching vocals.
The Surrey based band blends Americana with bluesy retro vibes to create their unique brand of urban blues rock. Their unique, innovative sound is typically the stuff of biker rock legend that you'd find somewhere down an American highway, and thus have to pinch yourself to remember that they come from the UK!
Fronted by Jason Lee Barratt of whom has adopted a phenomenal vocal range thanks to the lineage from his father (Shakin Stevens), but also honed his own sound which soars over the driving guitars of Harun Kotch on lead guitar and Luke Sohl Williams on bass, whilst sitting on solid drum grooves by drummer Wayne Riches (has also been the live drummer for Skin- Skunk Anansie amongst others.)
Between them, the band have already played on every corner of the globe with international chart success, received national award nominations, and had music used for various advertising campaigns, (including Henri Lloyd and the Mercerdes Petronas F1 Team.)
The Hoodoo Skulls have already attracted interest from European motorcycle brand KLM Wear, and have also picked up an endorsement by biker-esq clothing brand P&Co.
Off the back of their debut single Woman going viral online and a successful UK tour earlier this year supporting Shakin Stevens, J Lee and the Hoodoo Skulls are now back with their next single 2 Bit Lovers, which is out on Friday 1st December and available for pre order here:
The new video exposes the band members themselves for the first time, performing amidst chunky choppers with gritty smokey surroundings pulling you into their atmosphere of ballsy blues rock!
2 Bit Lovers sits perfectly between a classic vintage sound, and something originally raw...J Lee and the Hoodoo Skulls have smashed it again!
“Big, powerful guitar riffs with bone shaking vocals that soar between everything from T Rex to Tom Meighan. Exhilarating. Dust down your Harley and get trashed." - Nitin Sawhney
“Weighty 70's tinged stoner rock that brings to mind big league players such as Sabbath, the Black Keys and Wolfmother." - TAG Magazine
"Sleazy tequila-soaked rock 'n' roll riffage with tips of the cap to ZZ Top, Tame Impala and Rival Sons." - XYX Magazine
"Dripping with a pulsing, fuzzy menace and deliciously sleazy swagger." - TG2 Surrey
