Connie Lush
Connie Lush has been recognised as one of the finest Blues singers in the UK, winning five times, “Best Female Vocalist Uk” earning a place in the gallery of greats, alongside Alexis Corner and Eric Clapton to name just two. Twice voted “European Blues Vocalist of the year” by the French Blues Trophies Awards” and nominated again “Best UK Blues Vocalist” 2011-2012.
Growing up in her native Liverpool, her Mother used to send her to the record store every Saturday to purchase the top 10 chart hits. So it was that from an early age Connie became acquainted with the likes of Lonnie Donegan, Brenda Lee and Ray Charles.
From there she started listening to Little Feat and Bonnie Raitt and, after an audition at the Colne Blues Festival, she plucked up the courage to join husband Terry in his band,
In recent years, Connie has performed in over 30 countries. She has played at some of Europe’s largest and most prestigious festivals, including Glastonbury Festival 2011 and wowing audiences in Moscow, New York and LA , recording in “The Cotton Row Studios” in Memphis and of course singing at BB Kings, Beale St....Connie also toured with BB King through the Uk, finishing at The Royal Albert Hall London.
Connie is also a known songwriter, writing for TV and featuring at Jazz FM and other radio stations as a DJ. She continues her love affair with audiences everywhere, bringing her enormous “Gusto” for life and music wherever she goes. As BB King said “That Woman makes my heart sing!”
