Onya Soapbox Announces KLA Oceanic Blues Tour Dates

May 10 - Sep 29, 2019

Karen Lee Andrews hits this road from May-September 2019 for her “Oceanic Blues Tour”. 

  

Karen Lee Andrews has reconnected with her guitar, hitting new strides and a new style, which can only be described as, Oceanic Blues. And now this commanding woman of soul is back with her own original music and her EP “Far From Paradise” to set stages alight. The depths of her voice unlimited, she is already a fast festival favourite. 

  

Oceanic Blues is the newest sub-genre of the Blues. Oceania’s narrative tradition and the introduction of American Blues, Soul and Gospel since the 1960s, has shaped this distinctive style. The roots of the sound are gritty guitar, glowing valves, lush tremolo and deep reverb in a distinctively fluid Oceanic expression. This sound carries the mood and tones of Oceania expressed in rich, warm vocal tones. 

  

Andrews mostly tours as a formidable trio, teaming up with Yanya Boston on drums and Adam Ventura on bass – two exceptional musicians. Each musician is outstanding in his or her own right, but the dynamic of the group is exhilarating to witness! The trio delivers a classic hard-hitting blues rock. On occasion, Andrews performs with a full band, which includes Shannon Stitt on keys and Rawhiti Turnbull on lead guitar.

 

“Andrews is on an inspiring and passionate musical journey. A must see.” Beat Magazine 

“Commanding and brilliant.” Daily Telegraph 

“Soulful and bluesy, with so much heart and pain, delivered with so much class. Sound of Oz
