Artists In Focus: Blues Arcadia
Artists In Focus: Devils Kiosk
 In May 2012 they unveiled their new name and direction at Blues on Broadbeach (an event at which they have appeared since its inception in 2002) adding many faces to their growing following.

In September 2012 Devilʼs Kiosk thrilled the crowd and won the ʻPeoples Choice Awardʼ at the Blues Association of South East Queenslandʼs ʻMemphis Blues Challengeʼ and have since gone on to fulfill a busy playing schedule under their new guise.

With recent appearances at The Sydney Blues and Roots Festival, Brisbaneʼs Grottofest and Anges Blues & Roots, Devilʼs Kiosk has been showcasing all new material as well as featuring some of their award winning songs.

With a heavy blues foundation and featuring songs with a darker edge, their sound encompasses all the drama and energy that is so evident in their live performance.

Their sound derives from elements of the earthy sounds of the ʻ40ʼs and ʻ50ʼs blues masters, the soulful feel of ʻ60ʼs and ʻ70ʼs British blues as well as the virtuosic magic of more contemporary blues artists.

Devils Kiosk have taken it a step up and to the left having wowed fans in recent years at music festivals across Australia including the Woodford Folk Festival and the Gympie Muster.

“Blues Arcadia gave us a passionate performance and great music, and hammered home the argument that live bands are simply the best entertainment there is. Next time they’re playing, make sure you see them.” SCENESTR MAG.

Blues Arcadia (Alan Boyle, Chris Harvey, Jeremy Klysz and Parmis Rose) have used their emotive mix of soulful, Memphis blues to develop a solid following in only a couple of years. The band have delivered stand-out performances at festivals including Blues on Broadbeach, Caloundra Music Festival and the Gympie Music Muster.
