Description

Diesel, Alone With Blues sees Mark Lizotte returning with a vital and exhilarating collection of blues classics and rarities, playing every instrument on his first completely solo album. Featuring the single ‘Six Steel Strings’, co-written with Ross Wilson (Daddy Cool, Mondo Rock).   Playing everything himself and paying homage to some of his all-time favourite blues songs, along with a recently discovered but long forgotten song writing collaboration by Australian blues and roots pioneer Ross Wilson, ‘Alone With Blues’ showcases Diesel’s blues DNA on a macro level, in the process, showing new facets to an artist known for his diversity.

On Alone With Blues, Diesel pays tribute to giants like Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Otis Rush, Sam Cooke, Leadbelly, and Magic Sam. It is 11 tracks of veteran virtuosity from Mark Lizotte, the multiple ARIA award-winning singer and guitarist, augmented by double bass, blues harp, cello, percussion and more, all played and recorded solo at Diesel’s own Sydney studio during the 2020 COVID go-slow.

With Alone With Blues, Diesel has conjured up one of his most thrilling and affecting albums yet.
