Mobile’s only blues room is bringing back the guitar-infused sounds of Skyla Burrell. For more than a decade, this West Coast native has entertained crowds with her immaculate guitar style and electrifying blues.
While Burrell’s studio recordings are impressive, her live show is her greatest weapon, with a delivery that is energetic and unforgettable. When they take the stage, Burrell and her band seize the opportunity to stretch out into fantastic blues jams. The group’s past shows at The Blues Tavern have made many instant fans.
Burrell will be showing the Azalea City crowd her “Blues Scars,” the title of her latest release on the VizzTone Label. The album takes listeners on a journey through the world of blues. From rhythmic shuffles to funky grooves, “Blues Scars” caters to blues enthusiasts with a lineup of versatile cuts invigorated by a thin common thread of rock. Burrell’s guitar work sparkles brightly through the album, each track filled with her strings’ electric wail.
