Blue Blood’s shrouded origins lie in the heart of urban Auckland, New Zealand. Originally Blue Blood was the brain child of Joel C Thompson and Simon Hole. In late 2009 the pair decided that it was time to turn to their hard rock and bluesy roots and formed what is now Blue Blood. Over the proceeding months Blue Blood grew into a full band with Nathan Cooper joining on Keyboards and Simon Ross on Bass.

So with the musical low-rider’s accelerator firmly planted to the floor the Blue Blood journey is set for a non stop rollercoaster ride filled with tales of sex, drugs and rock and roll. Blue Blood sound can be described as the power of Ginger Baker on drums, the low end groove of John Paul Jones, the virtuous keys of Jon Lord, fused with the soaring guitar work of Hendrix and vocal embellishment of Ozzy Osborne. Blue Blood have already seamlessly composed 10 fearlessly, hard hitting retro rock numbers. The assorted love songs tell stories of wild nights with fast woman, re-encounters of heartless heart break and social commentaries on returning to the times when love was free and people’s minds were open.

Blue Blood have recorded their debut album at New Zealand’s premiere recording facility, York Street studios and the album is due to be mixed and master during the month of August. The demos have already sparked interest with a major label and when you get the final product in your hands you’ll understand why!

Blue Blood have recently shot their debut music video for “The Reason” and videos for “Rock and Roll Romance” and “Red Light Lover” are currently in production. These sexy videos feature scantly clad racks, Cadillac’s, and screaming Marshall stacks and are the collaborative works of Joel C Thompson and Juice Award Wining director Anthony Plant.

The Blue Blood tornado is set to tear the world apart in 2011. The bands booking agent has booked 8 dates in New Zealand, 15 dates in Australia and 30 dates in the US to tour their debut album. So no matter where you are in the world you can be sure that your girl friends not safe, ‘cause the Blue Blood touring machine could be just around the corner!
