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."

Half-speed mastered"...our heroine perpetuates the blues legacy with a brave attitude and amazing conviction." - 
Vicente Zumel, La Hora Del Blues

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.

The majority of the songs are written by Boyes showcasing Delta Blues influences with a little Caribbean thrown in. For the most part, the songs are paired down to the nub. Voice with guitar, with sundry percussion — once in a while, drums and bass make an appearance. Of course, this instrumentation appears on many blues albums, but Boyes has a way of drawing in the listener into her stories. It's very intimate, very personal. Like Bille Holiday and Bessie Smith, Boyes takes you on her journey.

From the wonderful liner notes, Boyes seems to have made a BFF in Johnson, the engineering alchemist of Reference Recordings. He's the reason why each Reference release with his imprimatur is awaited eagerly. His magic appears on this album from the very beginning.

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.

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.
