Britain has produced some legendary blues musicians including Carl Davies, Eric Clapton and Peter Green. So for Britain's top blues magazine to say - "One of the finest blues musicians this country has ever produced" means we are dealing here with somebody special. Paul Lamb has paid his dues in the time-honoured way. Hooked on harp from the age of 15, he took to the road playing in clubs all over England and in Europe. Within four years he was good enough to represent the UK at the World Harmonica Championships in Germany and went on to play with his hero Sonny Terry and many other blues greats like Buddy Guy, Brownie McGhee and Junior Wells. Yet Paul's burning ambition was to find the "perfect blues band" - and over several years and many bands, The King Snakes have evolved. Since then Paul Lamb has established himself as a harp player of international repute. Voted the UK's best harp player for an amazing six straight years, now he appears in the BBC's Hall of Fame and the Guinness Book of Who's Who in Music. Praise for Paul's musicianship has been universal and unconditional - "this is blues harp as good as it gets" said Mark Knopfler. His consummate skill as a harp player means Paul is in demand across the whole range of musical endeavours. His diverse credits include West End hit musicals, 'A Slice of Saturday Night' and 'Tommy The Opera'; advertisements (most recently for Nissan cars); concert performances with Mark Knopfler and Buddy Guy to name but a few plus countless sessions including the BBC, 'Spender' and 'Crocodile Shoes' with Jimmy Nail. Paul is also a solo recording artist. In 1995 he scored a hit single with "Harmonica Man" on Peter Waterman's label P.W.L., under the pseudonym of Bravado and the following year his band Paul Lamb & The King Snakes signed to Indigo Records with 4 albums to date. The accolades and awards heaped on Paul Lamb over the years by top musicians, critics and ordinary blues fans are more than just a testament to his superlative technique. They also hail a musician who has brought real panache, excitement and obvious passion to what will always be his real heart music...... THE BLUES.
