Northern Arizona based American blues based roots music band whose primary influence is the diverse styles of music from the Mississippi Delta region – they like to call it “American roadhouse swamp music”.
The Skyla Burrell Band is a full time, hardworking traveling blues band, known for their high-energy electric blues.
Onstage and on record, they play 100%
original material — singer/guitarist Skyla Burrell and co-founder/guitarist Mark Tomlinson share songwriting credits.
For BLUES SCARS, their fifth album, and their first with the VizzTone label group, Skyla and the band bring their high energy style into the studio for a 15-song set of their amazing original material.
"Sassy, sexy and full of fire, this crew rallies behind their leader mightily and all keep the party going in fine style. This is one white girl that knows what the blues are about."
"Burrell and her three cohorts find virtue in professionalism. They deliver unpretentious, self described "Hard Drivin' Blues" in which strength and understatement unite in an easy, fluid
balance without sucking up to rock."
"Skyla Burrell and Mark Tomlinson's set for Lil' Ed was the most incendiary and pulse pounding opening sets I've ever heard."
TOM CULLEN, PRESIDENT BUCKS COUNTY BLUES SOCIETY
