Al meer dan tien jaar slaagt Carrie Clark erin om de mensen die naar haar komen kijken te verbazen met een combinatie van superbe zanglijnen en speelse ritmes. Haar songs gaan stuk voor stuk over one night stands, femme fatales en cowboys. Allemaal miniverhaaltjes die begeleidt worden door een mix van klassieke country, folk en jazz. Het minste wat je kan zeggen van haar songs is dat deze dame uit Seattle een heel eigen geluid laat horen. ‘Between The Bed Sheets And Turpentine’ is haar vierde plaat en opnieuw wordt ze geruggesteund door The Lonesome Lovers, haar begeleidingsband.

Wonderland has been involved in a number of recordings. She was the lead singer fronting the band Imperial Monkeys.

Kyla's voice remains a stunning example of the soul singer's art: turning up the heat by degrees, lulling and charming before unleashing emotional catharsis, and blurring the distinction between pleasure and pain like the soul greats of old. Whether fronting the mighty Kyla Brox Band, or harnessing undiluted soul power in a duo with musical and life partner Danny Blomeley, Kyla Brox is without doubt the most authentic UK blues and soul singer of her generation.

Canned Heat, R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, Kenny Brown, ... Juke joint music ... those are the musical influences that define the universe of RR Hillburn (vocals & guitar) who decided a few months back to start the Hillburn Band project, along with Dan Blackwolf (upright bass) and Omar (drums). A few weeks later, during a jam, the excellent guitarist Julie (Juju Vagabond) played along with the band and ... has never left it since! From then on things went very quickly, and the band's first few concerts were much appreciated and very well recieved by the audience, especially in the northern part of the country. It is for them a wonderful opportunity to play at the Crossroads Café and share their music with a true audience of blues lovers! Don't forget to boogie!

The Soul Messiahs: hot-buttered soul, gritty r&b, Hammond & deep funk.
Met THE SOUL MESSIAHS keert zanger Yurek Onzia terug naar zijn eerste liefde, de zwarte soul en rhythm & blues van Stax, Motown, Hi Records, Chess en Atlantic.
Samen met muzikale spitsbroeders TIM IELEGEMS, CHRIS FORGET, GINO CAMPENAERTS, WERNER HUYSMANS, JOACHIM THYS en ANGEL CALVO PEREZ serveert hij opwindende en hartverscheurende soul in de traditie van de revues van eind jaren 60, met knipog
en naar de muzikale erfenis van illustere voorvaders als Ike & Tina Turner, Otis Redding, Al Green, Shuggie Otis, The Young Rascals, Bobby Womack & Curtis Mayfield, en zoals die vandaag wordt beleden door labels als Daptone Records en artiesten als Lee Fields, Raphael Saadiq, Charles Bradley en Kings Go Forth.
