Big Wind on the Way on CD

Canadian blues/roots recording artists, Holly Hyatt and Jonathan Burden, hail from the mountains of southern British Columbia - the Kootenay's, to be exact and not only do they compliment each other with their playing and singing (Jon's blues drenched guitar with Holly's stellar vocal chops) but they write great songs together. Holly took up bass at ten, won a vocal scholarship, performed at the Lionel Hampton International Jazz Festival and opened for multiple Maple Blues award winner, Carlos Del Junco, while still in high school. She completed two years at the Selkirk College Contemporary Music Program majoring in voice and performance and during this time performed at a nationally televised show for the 2006 BC Winter Games in front of an audience of 3000 and sang with legendary jazz artist's, The Brubreck Brothers. Her voice has been described as "smooth and soulful; combining an innate sense of melody with jazz phrasing and blues feel" and "Soaring from deep inside the well of Aretha Franklin and Eva Cassidy". You only need listen to the power and emotion that Holly's voice evokes on "Train Wreck Blues" or her blues mama approach to "I'm A Woman" to realize that you don't learn to sing this way. You're born with it. Jon started performing in England, where he spent a portion of his childhood. At an early age he was entertaining audiences but it wasn't until his family moved to Canada that he began to concentrate seriously on guitar and to play music professionally. After seeing blues legend's Freddie King and Willie Dixon and the Chicago All Stars perform he followed his own musical calling and honed his craft in the western Canadian music scene of the mid 70's and 80's, later playing on shows with Spirit Of The West, Skydiggers, Sonny Rhodes, Rita Chiarelli and Fred Eaglesmith.. A more than adequate blues guitarist, Jon can also play some great country licks. Check out "Cowboy Angel". This is pure traditional country pickin'. Fast forward to the summer of 2005 when Holly and Jon, after playing together professionally for two years, gather together some old friends and some new acquaintances and head into a local recording studio to lay down the tracks that will become their first record of all original material. After deciding to showcase their songwriting abilities as well as explore some of the genre's that have inspired them, the result is an original, sonic journey through jazz influenced funk, acoustic alt/country, contemporary folk rock and electric blues, all imbued with the spirit of rock and roll. Entitled," Big Wind on the Way", the record has gone on to receive airplay and chart action across the country and world wide on the Sirius Satellite Network.
