Slick, modern and funky are words often used to describe multi-award winning blues band Blue Eyes Cry. Hardworking would be another. From the un-air conditioned comfort of its touring van, the band regularly journeys from its home base of Melbourne to perform at festivals and gigs across Australia.
Since the May 2013 release of its debut album, Sleepin’ Alone, Blue Eyes Cry has gone from strength to strength. Upon release, the album saw two consecutive months at number one in the Australian Blues and Roots Airplay Chart, and continued to appear in the chart’s Top 25 for the next 12 months.
Following this, the band was awarded two prestigious Chain Awards in 2014 for New Talent of the Year and Song of the Year. Lead singer, Iseula Hingano, was awarded Female Artist of the Year in the 2013 Victorian and Tasmanian Blues Music Awards and the band was awarded an Honourable Mention in the 2013 International Song Writing Competition.
