Savoy Brown
and Kim Simmonds


Savoy Brown, featuring Kim Simmonds, toured in 2003 in support of their 30th album, Strange Dreams, released on Blind Pig Records.

Throughout their 35 year history, Savoy Brown has performed over 5,000 concerts, headlining such legendary venues as Carnegie Hall, the Fillmore and the Fillmore East and appearing with such rock icons as Led Zepplin, Janis Joplin and Eric Clapton.

They performed at Nimbus Brewery in Tucson, AZ on Tuesday, February 11, 2003 when EMOL journalist Tracie Reed interviewed original member Kim Simmonds.

The affiliation with Blind Pig, one of the leading blues labels in the world, seems like a natural.

"The music of Savoy Brown has never really got that far away from the blues. Everything that I have done with the band has had a b]ues standpoint to it," Simmonds says. Strange Dreams incorporates a new band line-up led by founding member Simmonds, who remarks, "I've been blessed with a band that has natural musical chemistry together and one with a desire to do justice to the past as well as being able to create new music on which to build a future."

One of the earliest of British blues bands, Savoy Brown helped launch the U.K. blues/rock movement that paved the way for such acts as Led Zepplin. In the early 70's the band had platinum chart success with two albums - Street Corner Talhng and Hellbound Train. Simmonds has long been synonymous with "Legendary British Bl.les Guitar," being mentioned in the same breath as Eric Clapton, Peter Green and Mick Taylor in the hierarchy of England's best guitar slingers from the 60's golden era of British blues.

Now one of the most celebrated groups in modern blues history perpetuates their storied tradition with the release of Strange Dreams on Blind Pig Records.
