Blackjack Love Says Much on Music, Creativeness and More!

Rock n' rollers BLACKJACK LOVE have a style all their own, releasing content over time, with all new material in the works as well! The band goes on to say much more about themselves and their music creativity.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Well, originally it was just me (Azza), & I recorded/produced our debut album 'Bullets & Blues', with a fellow producer/drummer. I met our current drummer Matt Wonder years ago when he was in another band and we clicked from there. One day me and my mate Newbs were going up to a Chelsea game and walked past him sat in a boozer with his old man and they started shouting obscenities at me so we went in a had a drink with them. I was telling him I was looking to put a band together and he jumped at the chance. Our Bass player, Brother Sam, I just found him lying in the street with a bass guitar and an empty bottle of jack, so I took him in. As for our rhythm guitarist, Brother Nick (they're not related) he was there when we got to the practice studio (But really Matt Wonder recruited him)
2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

I won a load of money on blackjack, then made love all night. Next.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

The band is based out of Woking, to be honest, I wouldn't say there is much of a scene here anymore, there's more of a scene in Guildford which is a few miles down the road. The only band that I really know of currently is Birdsworth, go check them out.

4. How would you describe your style?

Heavy Blues Baby!!!! A mixture of Groove-laden desert rock riffs, heavy bass lines and catchy melodies along with a Tarantino-esque stoner rock vibe.   

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

So far our album 'Bullets & Blues' is available on all good streaming platforms, along with current singles 'Forever Man' and 'Before I leave'. If you listen to 'B&B' from start to finish it is loosely based as a concept album, which we hope is something people can enjoy. We also recently recorded a live acoustic session which your readers can find on our YouTube.    

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Of course! we have a new single coming out in the coming weeks called 'I Want War' and we have a truck load more in the pipeline for you wonderful people, so be sure to keep up to date with our socials.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We had load of gigs lined up throughout the summer and onwards, but due to the current situation we have had to hit the brakes on that, which has been a killer. But as soon as we get the green light it will be full steam ahead.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Sex, Drugs & Rock 'n Roll. Maybe world domination? Big stages, Big crowds and Big Sounds with the odd cup of tea thrown in.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can listen to us wherever you are in the world, but to be specific iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Deezer, YouTube, Soundcloud and most other streaming sites.   

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

We want our tune ingrained in their head, be it the melody, the instruments or just the sound. We want you to sing it for days until it drives you mad! any hook that gets you humming when you don't even realize, and most of all, we want them to enjoy it on a spiritual and emotional level.
