Joel Fisk & The Breakdown are a newly formed Essex-based outfit, morphing Hokie Joint, LaVendore Rogue, Tim Aves & Wolfpack and The Swamp Cats to form a red hot Blues and Roots band to take on the British Blues Scene.
As strange as it may seem, in order to stand out in the British Blues Scene, a band must record a Blues album. With this in mind, Joel Fisk & The Breakdown are there to challenge the preconceptions of what Blues music is all about.
Released on Fisk’s own ‘Hollytree Studios’ label, “The Well” is by no means a Blues Rock record. It is a collection of songs that made this band what they are today, as stated in the liner notes; “Influences, Inspiration and Interpretations”.
Fisk has chosen a mixture of work songs, Delta Blues and Chicago Blues by the likes of Howlin’ Wolf, Charley Patton, Son House and Robert Johnson, and arranged them in his own inimitable style. “The Well” also features his debut performance on record as lead vocalist and producer.
