Blues Rocker from North Italy plays in the UK – Worcestershire Show
Eliana will be playing six dates across the country with her band this November and more dates will be added soon for the start of the New Year. Her second show is at The Iron Road Live at Bar 57 in Pershore on Saturday 9th November
Said to be the new hope of rock blues, Eliana is one of the rare real front women of the European live music scene and the renowned Joe Bonamassa put a song of Eliana on the list of the eight recent songs absolutely to hear. The Italian guitarist and singer, graduated in jazz guitar at the conservatory “G. Frescobaldi” in Ferrara introducing a thesis on Mike Stern. She plays a flavour of rock blues with a bit of everything in between: electric funk, mixed with pop and jazzy instrumentals, raw rock, tight blues grooves, illuminated by her skills as an electric guitarist. Her sets truly have something for everyone.
Her band, features well known musicians from the Italian blues scene: Simone Serafini (Bass), Carmine Bloisi (Drums) and the melting of their personalities gives life to the subtly of musical nuances.
Eliana was the winner of the Blues Contest in Pordenone, Italy, in 2010, she won the blues award as the “best new young artist” at “Oscar del Blues” in Modena, Italy. In 2015 she was named one of the five “best female guitarists” in the rock blues scene at the American “Jimi Awards” and was nominated the 5th best female guitar player of the rock blues world by Blues E-news magazine. In the same year, she was also part of the international Tour with Blues Caravan project “Girls With Guitars” of Ruf Record label. Fast forward three years when Eliana toured the UK as part of the Ladies of the Blues.
