NINE BELOW ZERO's founding members Mark Feltham and Dennis Greaves have announced the release of ‘Duo’, an album that sees them recording as a duo for the first time to celebrate their love of blues music, on 13th April, 2015.

With Mark on harmonica, Dennis on guitar and the duo sharing vocal duties, they have used the bare essentials to pay homage to the musicians, in particular Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, who inspired them to form a band and start writing music 37 years ago.

“We always loved American folk music and Mark, as a harmonica player, is drawn towards blues and country music. Living with the blues is everything a blues song is…a life’s journey of struggle and coming to terms with it,” explains Dennis.

Mark and Dennis have recorded several classic tracks by Sonny & Brownie as well as Randy Newman’s slave trade tale ‘Sail Away’, Bessie Smith’s ‘Backwater Blues’, ‘Amazing Grace and songs by Lead Belly, Hank Williams and Jethro Tull, amongst others.

“We wanted the album to feel really authentic and we recorded most of the songs live - some like ‘Walk On’ in just one take - capturing the performance and the feel over perfection. We tried to stay honest to the originals whilst putting our stamp on them” says Mark. They achieved this by creating their own instrumental arrangements for several of the covers including Area Code 615’s ‘Stone Fox Chase’ and by stripping bare some of their own self-penned cult classics such as ‘Egg on my Face’ and ‘Ballad of Dombovar’.

The love of the blues began at an early age for Mark and Dennis. Two of Dennis’ uncles were big fans and both had vast collections of blues albums, and it was listening to those records that encouraged the Nine Below Zero frontman to first pick up the guitar. Meanwhile Mark’s Merchant Navy uncle would bring him harmonicas from his travels overseas. The pair first met in the late 1970s, during the punk era, when Dennis decided to form a blues band and was introduced to harmonica player Mark - who not only lived on the same estate in South London, but just 14 houses away. The name of their band itself, Nine Below Zero, was inspired by the song penned by Sonny Boy Williamson II, an American folk-blues legend from Mississippi.

Since their genesis in the 1970s, Nine Below Zero have been known for providing unique and innovative music in the form of alt blues-rock, a breath of fresh air in a pop punk era. Now, in 2015, Mark and Dennis are giving us classic emotive blues in the form of this acoustic album.
