Established International Blues Musician Robbie Reay is making waves on the music scene in the UK and Europe. In the last few Years, Robbie has played a number of UK blues festivals and has established himself as a real force in the British Blues scene. Robbie performs solo in the UK and overseas, playing original, Contemporary Blues songs with Slide Guitar and driving Cigar Box Guitar foot stompers. Robbie also performs with his band The Killer Cats and as a duo accompanied by Will Cran. Robbie's Blues repertoire is intertwined with sincere balladry in a virtuoso style that's hard to beat. He lives the blues, he breathes it and if your lucky, he'll bring along his spade guitar. Dig It!.. Robbie said "once you've experienced the blues it stays with you, its not something you can get rid of. To quantify it in words is not easy, its organic, personal and not something we control, its simply life." Blues Music is an honest emotional expression whilst being true to your feelings. “You live it, you feel it, it becomes part of you like a disease”. “It’s hypnotic, it heals your soul, it’s becomes your salvation”.

"A really great live performer, full of energy and charisma"

Russ Field (Showaddywaddy)


Robbie’s debut Blues album 'The Jeky’ll Can’t Hide' enjoyed great success on the radio and the songs still wowing audiences during his live performances. 'Barefoot Blues' was inspired by a fascinating tour of Mississippi where Robbie visited the illusive crossroads. This album paved the way for 'Airsick Reay Blues Music' which achieved no. 2 in the IBBA airplay charts. Robbie’s latest album 'Up and Down' reached no. 3 in the IBBA charts. All albums are original material. His current album 'Up and Down' was released in June 2020 and has received excellent reviews from the UK and European music press, including Blues Matters Magazine and Blues in Britain. It was the thirtieth most played album by the Independent Blues Broadcasters Association in 2020. Robbie released his latest album, 'Up and Down' during the summer of 2020 when all the venues were closed due to Covid.
