About the Gravel-Aires:
~ Mark Branscombe - Roots guy, Indie guy, Pop guy, Blues guy, Country guy, working guy from the eastside of Vancouver Canada. Since 1978 a guitarist singer and songwriter with Mud Bay, a Vancouver blues rock band; crossing paths and opening shows for Stevie Ray Vaughn, James Cotton, James Hunter, Long John Baldry as well as Canadian bluesmen Jim Byrnes, Dutch Mason and Big Dave McClean. https://mudbayblues.com/wp/
~ Michael Mahoney - Guitars, mandolins, dobros: anything with strings.
Mike draws from a wide spectrum of musical interests, including Appalachian Bluegrass, Nashville and outlaw country, Delta blues, rock'n roll, R&B, punk rock and contemporary alternative rock and Americana. Mike is also an abstract painter and an avid reader of history books.
For 40 years (and counting) Mud Bay has been electrifying audiences with their high-intensity brand of original Roots & Blues music. Weathering more than a few storms along the way, they have been hailed as true Soul Survivors--“The Band That Won't Go Away”--much to the delight of music lovers around the world.
The five-piece band features four songwriters, three of whom are lead vocalists. Underlying this diversity is a remarkable consistency, the result of a shared vision refined over many years; distinct as the individual contributions may be, it all comes out sounding like Mud Bay.
Strong vocals and rhythmic elements reflect a wide range of influences—classic Chicago Blues, Country, Cajun, Rock, Soul—all finding common ground inside well-crafted, inventive songs.
Unconventional and uncompromising, Mud Bay has always taken the road less traveled, favouring innovation over imitation. Their dedication to exploring and enriching the Roots idiom has never wavered. And with four decades of dues paid, they have earned respect and praise from such legendary performers as James Cotton (“Just like playing with family”) and Stevie Ray Vaughn (“Mud Bay..?... More fun!”)
Mud Bay's fourth album, Colebrook Road, received national airplay on CBC’s Saturday Night Blues and Stingray Music, on CFRO, CITR and LG104 and Roundhouse Radio locally, on internet radio in Europe, Canada and the US, and on community and university radio across Canada and around the world.
In 2018 Mud Bay celebrates 40 years of music making with their 5th independent release “Mud Bay - Live at Lorenzo’s” and will begin recording a new album of all original Mud Bay Music.
Rock, Roots and Blues since 1978 and still going strong.
