“The basic idea of the title” Bloater explains, “is we are all luxury hobos these days, we get to go here, there and everywhere but no one has it the hard way now do they? We all have our luxuries, it’s that juxtaposition, I think the whole album is about the modern day life and society.”
Besides a bluesman, Bloater is currently the presenter of the hugely popular The Blues Magazine Show for Team Rock Radio, where his charismatic and down to earth personality perfectly suits the shows format and has given him the chance to interview some of the greatest artists both past and present including; Robert Cray, Walter Trout, Mud Morganfield and Dan Patlansky amongst others.
His Tom Waits-esque gravelly vocal delivery, coupled with the distinctive and dynamic guitar style has seen him build on the blues foundation offering insights into rockier territories. This approach has led to praise from Imelda May who has confessed to being a “massive fan”, and Jools Holland, who declared him “one of the greatest bluesmen of our time”.
