Karen Nunis Blackstone is a soulful blues/jazz singer as well as songwriter and fine artist, now back in Malaysia after many years in Japan, Singapore and the US, where she sang in various collaborative efforts and exhibited her artworks. The music she writes and sings fuses the idioms of blues and jazz, blending soulful world music overtones.

 

Billie Blue and the Nowhere Men is an alternative rock outfit with a vintage sound echoing the sensibilities of folk rock and acid rock music of the 60s and 70s. Inspired by bands like Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, and Jefferson Airplane, the band delivers driving rhythms, colourful melodic lines, and assured yet sensitive vocals with distinctive vibrato. In combination with dynamic guitar riffs and steadily nuanced bass and drums, their musical approach is decidedly introspective, bohemian, and hard to ignore.
