Nuttin’ but the blues – Blind Freddie would think Chris Mawer was black and in his sixties. Prodigiously talented, Mawer oozes Blues authenticity and, while he is recognised as one of the best bass players on the blues scene and can hold his own with the cream of acoustic and electric Australian Blues guitarists, Mawer’s ace-in-the-hole is his astounding voice.
His music has been influenced by such greats as Howlin’ Wolf, Ray Charles, Tom Waits, Nat King Cole, Sam Cooke, Muddy Waters.
You listen to Chris Mawer’s music and you are in no doubt that he is the real deal. Get ready for some jumpin’ swingin’ hollerin’ blues from Chris with our local rhythm section, Mitch Preston on drums and John Coates on Bass.
