Following his return from Memphis USA where he placed top 8 in the prestigious International Blues Challenge, Sydney-based award-winning guitarist Ray Beadle is set to release his first album in 7 years in the form of The 301 Live Session. Featuring Ray Beadle on guitar & vocals, Jonathan Zwartz on double bass and Andrew Dickeson on snare & brushes, The 301 Live Session saw the trio hit Studios 301 in March 2020 to record the 9-track album. Recorded and produced by Stefan Du Rant, mastered by 301’s Steve Smart and executively produced by Geoff Trio & Ron Haryanto, the result is a slick collection of selected Beadle originals and legendary blues numbers (covering the likes of Robert Johnson, J.B. Lenoir, Louis Jordan, L.J. Welch, Joseph Perkins Greene, Muddy Waters and J. Smith). Released on July 10 2020, The 301 Live Session is the seventh release for Beadle who says; “Recording this live in studio album was spontaneous and fun. I’m very grateful to be joined by two of the finest musicians I know.” The album also marks the first release for newly launched label Interface Music. The label’s Geoff Trio says “With the release of Ray Beadle’s ‘The 301 Live Session, Interface Music is excited to announce the signing of Ray to Interface Blue – a new sub label specialising in Jazz and Blues.
