There’s no escaping when the Blues are Knockin’! With this second set of soulful sounds from the Markey Blue Band once you hear “The Blues are Knockin” open up that door and let the blues begin.
It’s well-paced music that’s guaranteed to get your toes tapping and your feet on the dance floor. The Blues Are Knockin’ delivers a strong dose of original, modern blues and, like the band’s first release, proves once again that Markey Blue is a band on the rise. Strongly recommended.
The worthy cynosure is Markey whose vocal exhibit range and depth motion and conviction. In comparison she most resembles contemporary award winning chanteuse Janiva Magness; don’t be surprised if Markey is winning her own accolades and prizes soon. She can coo and cajole with the best, and most impresses with the power of her singing. The woman has pipes!
“What do you get when you have a great singer, a great band and great songs? A great project. Markey Blue, you have done it!”

Wow now that is what l call an amazing album that quite frankly left me gobsmacked. Complex, moody sensuous Blues that are perfectly constructed and the charts are to die for. Latina and Markey as a duo are incredible performers but aside from that obvious observation they are incredible songwriters. Love so much about this album and this will start many a music fan’s foray into Blues music. Congratulations Ric and Markey.
