Mastered by Prof. Keith Johnson!
Boyes Is Joined by Jimi Bott and Denny Croy!


2018 Blues Music Award Nominee!
• Instrumentalist-Drums: Jimi Bott


Professin’ the Blues proclaims Fiona Boyes’ passion for the Blues as she celebrates the unique contribution of recording and mastering engineer ‘Professor’ Keith o. Johnson, Reference Recording’s Technical Director and audio legend. In her self-penned and illustrated liner notes Fiona makes the declaration, “‘Professor’ Keith’s amazing approach to capturing sounds, mostly with his own hand built equipment, is nothing short of sonic alchemy.”

Australian Blues guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Fiona Boyes has been recording and performing for more than 25 years, building a career that has taken her to major festivals and stages around the world. A veteran recording artist with 13 releases, she has received 5 Blues Music award nominations in 4 different categories from the Blues Foundation in Memphis, more than 30 Australian music awards, worldwide accolades and legions of supporters. Fiona’s immersion in the rich musical and historical traditions that make up the Blues lend conviction and authenticity to both her guitar work and songwriting. Her abundant talent, artistic sincerity and musical integrity are a beacon.

In solo, duo and trio settings, Fiona presents 16 tunes (14 originals and 2 covers), employing a traditional acoustic guitar, two different metal body resonators and a unique 4-string cigar box guitar. Joining her are two highly respected instrumentalists; drummer Jimi Bott and bassist Denny Croy. Recorded at Skywalker sound in Marin County, California, Professin’ the Blues, like all ‘Prof.’ Johnson’s sessions, was recorded live, in real-time, with no overdubs or effects. Co-produced by Fiona Boyes and Janice Mancuso.

For 40 years, REFERENCE RECORDINGS has been one of the most innovative and respected independent labels in the music business. Reference Recordings releases have been highly praised for their dedication to high quality sound in the service of great music. Founder Tam Henderson (1998 Grammy® nominee for Producer of the year), was joined in 1978 by engineer Keith O. Johnson. some 140 projects later, RR is still recording what many consider to be the finest-sounding classical, jazz and blues discs in the world.

"Fiona Boyes, one of the world's best fingerpicking blues guitarists, had wanted to record an album with engineer and recording alchemist 'Professor' Keith O Johnson for ages. She didn't expect it would involve rubber chickens. … The result? That album, Professin' the Blues, has just won best acoustic album for 2017 at the Blues Blast music awards in the US, making Boyes the only Australian to achieve the feat." - Gareth Hutchens, The Guardian Read more!
