Billy TK Jnr - NZ Blue's LegendBilly TK Jnr and the Groove Shakers‘ head to Australia in October and November 2012 to break their new album ‘Blues Benediction‘.

The respected Austin Texas Music Monthly describes him as…….N.Z’s world class Kiwi rocker…

If that doesn’t sum it up then you can get an idea of just what a talent this man is by listening to Jimmy Barnes when he says “Billy TK Jnr is amazing“. To add weight to the argument Ian Moss thinks “Billy’s like SRV on steroids“, the legendary George Thorogood said “I never expected him to be this good! He’s got the whole blues guitar thing down.” and Tommy Emmanuel got straight to the point with… “What a smoking guitar player

Hailing from New Zealand Billy TK Jnr toured internationally with great reviews for several years and first came to prominence in Australia in 2010 and quickly made an indent on the Australian touring circuit.

Billy will release his new album ‘Blues Benediction’ through MGM in November 2012, in time for these shows.

They say that everything is about timing and this album feels like it has ‘arrived’ at the right location at the right time – I have recorded 2 albums in the past but none of them have ever felt or sounded as good as this – it is kind of a reflection of where I am at in my life’ ‘The album took 12 months to do. A strange and sad story but with a wonderful ending – I am very proud of this album and what I have now for the world to listen to is up there with the music of my heroes who inspired me to play.” Billy TK Jnr.
