"One of the best new blues talents out there"

Great electric blues from one of the best new blues talents out there. Many highlights, great material, raw and gutsy guitar playing in the SRV mould. Don't get me wrong this is not an attempt by CHAMBERS to copy the master, he just uses some of the phrasing and some of the tones that SRV was famous for. This almost sounds like a live CD, such is the rawness of the approach and the energy flowing from the speakers. As good or better than CHAMBERS's first CD. I will have to listen for a while before I am game to pick a favourite as they are both great blues fare.

"AWESOME ROCKING BLUES"

AWESOME ROCKING BLUES, June 19, 2004
Reviewer: Richard Trafton (New York)
If you like Hendrix,Vaughn,Winter,Gibbons,Trower then this cat is for you. Sean rocks way beyond his years on Time Passes the 1st track. It's a mixture of influences we all love. Frankie and Danny Tolar (Allman Brothers, Greg Allman Band) play with Sean on a song called "Loniness" this song has an infectious groove that keeps you wanting to hear more. A great CD, I would recommend this Album (Humble Spirits) and Seans first (Strong Temptation) to all who want to hear great rocking blues. This guy can play guitar.

"If it isn't the best 37 minutes of blues rock you hear all year I'll eat my strat"

The future of hard Blues? you've heard that before, but this time we mean it!
He hails from laid back Florida but 29 year old Chambers rocks, smoulders and grooves in the best traditions of hard edged texas blues. With cocksure soloing that extends to gut wrenching wah, the comparisons with SRV and Johnny Winter are both inevitable and justified. While Chambers gets serious mielage from his heroes, originals like "You Was Wrong" a kind of Stormy Monday 2000, prove that harmonically he can take the blues to places it's never been. Only 9 tracks, but if it isn't the best 37 minutes of blues rock you hear all year I'll eat my strat! - Total Guitar Magazine-Dominic Pedler


"His only hook is his tremendous talent!"

Sean Chambers makes no bones about the fact that his blues are cut from the same cloth as Strevie Ray Vaughan's. Echoes of the late Texas bluesman can easily be heard in Chambers' rugged vocals, cranked Start tones, and song arrangements, some of which feauture punchy stop time breaks a la Vaughan's "Couldn't Stand The Weather.
That being said, the similarities don't distract from Chambers' obvious prowess and passionate delivery, and, to be clear, Chambers IS NO one trick Pony. Among the impressive non-Vaughan cards he plays on "Strong Temptation" are a blazing cover of Johnny Winter's "Mean Town Blues" complete with down and dirty Winter inspired slide, and his own "Dixie 45" which is a three minute showcase for his dramatic wah-wah chops.
The album's closer "You Was Wrong"- an original reminiscent of the blues standard "Stormy Monday" proves to be the best setting for Chambers. Though his energized playing on "Strong Tempation's" uptempo numbers is compelling, the slow grind of "You Was Wrong" gives him time to express himself in further detail. The results are blues poetry!
Being neither a fresh faced wunderkid nor a blues elder, Chambers may have a hard time positioning himself in the competitive blues market. His only hook is his TREMENDOUS talent! Ain't that enough? - Guitar Player Magazine


"Chambers deilvers his hard rocking blues with the assurance of a fifty year veteran"

Chambers lists the three kings (Albert, Freddie and B.B) as well as Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Winter, Albert Collins and SRV among some of his greatest influences, and on his first album "Strong Temptation" he does all of these guitar legends proud. Chambers deilvers his hard rocking blues with the assurance of a fifty year veteran, belying his mere 30 years - Guitar World


"Chambers plays his start with dirty ferocity, evoking shades of Johnny Winter and Freddie King"

One listen to this Floridian's hard-rockin self released effort "Strong Temptation" reveals him to be more than just another "blues Rock" guitar clone, Chambers plays his start with dirty ferocity, evoking shades of Johnny Winter and Freddie King in the process. And his playing is augmented by a tough vocal deliver that belies his 29 years. - Guitar Magazine


"The guitar work on this new disc shows the depth, and passion for upfront,burn your house down blues."

It is nice to know that I can now give my Strong Temptation disc a rest! Humble Spirits was worth the wait... The guitar work on this new disc shows the depth, and passion for upfront,burn your house down blues.
- John Mark-Melbourne Journal

"The man knows his instrument and plays it with a Balls out attitude!"

About the only problem I had with Sean Chambers second release is that there weren't enough songs on the cd. The man knows his instrument and plays it with a Balls out attitude! Tight musicianship and well crafted songs make Humble Spirits a joy to listen to. The title track also happens to be my favorite on the entire cd! Well done!!

SEAN CHAMBERS CLOCKS IN WITH ROCKIN’ BLUES ON TEN TIL MIDNIGHT,
NEW CD COMING OCTOBER 20 ON BLUE HEAT RECORDS

FORMER MUSICAL DIRECTOR FOR HUBERT SUMLIN TEARS INTO A BLISTERING SET OF BLUES ON HIS LATEST ALBUM

TAMPA, FL – Blues guitarist and singer Sean Chambers has announced an October 20 release date for his latest CD, Ten Til Midnight, on the Blue Heat Records label, to be nationally distributed by Burnside Distribution. The new disc is the third CD from the Tampa-based Chambers, and showcases the powerful style which earned him critical plaudits from a host of magazines, including Europe’s Guitarist Magazine, which listed Sean as “one of the Top 50 Blues Guitarists of the last century;� and Total Guitar Magazine, which called his 1998 debut CD, Strong Temptation, “The most impressive blues debut since Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Texas Flood.�

Sean’s talents as a guitarist were recognized early-on by a host of blues stars and legends, such as B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy and Robert Cray, who all employed Chambers as their opening act on numerous shows in Florida. Earlier this decade, he got the call from another iconic blues guitarist, Hubert Sumlin, whose own work with the great Howlin’ Wolf was a one the of trademarks of the Wolf’s sound; and Chambers signed on as Sumlin’s musical director and guitarist. During a period of five years, he toured all over the world backing Hubert at festivals and clubs throughout the U.S., Europe, Japan and Canada. “I consider my time with Hubert Sumlin as my college education. I learned so much from Hubert,� says Chambers.

On Sean’s second album, the 2005 release, Humble Spirits, he put those lessons to good use, expanding his musical horizons beyond blues on an album produced by Bud Snyder (The Allman Brothers Band and Gov’t Mule), which featured such special guests as Bernard Allison, Frankie and Dan Toler (The Allman Brothers), Bobby T. Torello (Johnny Winter) and Greg Allman band alumnus Bruce Waibel.

On Ten Til Midnight, Sean Chambers and co-producer Tim Blair wanted to go for a live sound similar to their incendiary concert shows; so most of the tracks were recorded with few overdubs. They feature Chambers on guitar and vocals, and his regular touring band: Tim Blair on bass and Paul Broderick on drums. Special guests includes Ben Crider on Hammond B-3 organ, Jack Henriquez on piano, Gary Keith on harmonica, and Robin Bouie and Clarence L. Stevenson on backing vocals.

Sean’s aggressive, yet fluid blues guitar approach is evident throughout the seven originals, as well as covers of songs from ZZ Top (“Brown Sugar�), Luther Allison (“All the King’s Horses�) and Eddie “Guitar Slim� Jones (“You’re Gonna Miss Me�). It’s that combination of reverence for tradition along with his special jolt of energy that makes his sound so unique.

Sean Chambers will support the release of Ten Til Midnight with consistent tour dates, including an October 17 show at the House of Blues in Orlando as special guest for Robin Tower.

Radio promotion for the new CD is being handled by Rick Lusher
