Sweden/U.S.A. - 2011
Infamous for their charismatic performances, the rock quartet Blues Pills had a fast journey of global success. They went straight from dirty, crowded bars to playing at some of Europe’s biggest festivals such as Download, Rock am Ring, Wacken Open Air and Roskilde. Their self-titled debut album went straight into the European charts and hit #4 in Germany and their second album Lady in Gold landed a #1 in Germany.
Blues Pills is a heavy dose of pure rock power, and with hundreds of thousands of sold records and one of today’s strongest rock vocalists, this band is here to stay.
Under the layers of heavy psychedelic blues rock and Elin Larsson’s soulful and powerful voice, often compared to Janis Joplin, Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse and Adele, the core of Blues Pills has always been the restless search for change. Change in the human mind and the musical influences they embraced themselves with, from blackened soul to the trippy rides through 60’s rock music and the devils blues. In 2020 Blues Pills released their critical acclaimed self produced and recorded album Holy Moly! mixed by Grammy Award winning Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Iggy Pop, Adele, Black Sabbath, Rival Sons, Hozier et al).
