THE JUJUBES – RAW STRIPPED BACK BLUES
One vocal, one blues harp and two guitars are what makes The Jujubes authentic yet unique blues sound.
Sandy, Nikki and Pete make up the trio based in South East London via Scotland, Nottingham and Hackney.
Born out of a passion to keep this genre alive, The Jujubes on their debut album have chosen eight songs from childhood memories of discovering the blues and three originals, recorded in their living room.
With only the desire to create something that felt right and felt good, The Jujubes hope that listening to this album will remind you of the Willie Dixon quote “The Blues are the roots and the other musics are the fruits”.
This album is great to listen to something that reminds you of how the raw simplicity of blues and how it can be carried forward and all of this style of music isn't just left in the archives of time
Ben Darwin – Blues from the Ouse
The Jujubes are possessors of ripped open raw and dirty blues souls and the album is delivered with frankness and authority throughout
John Armstrong – Tuning up on Wasp Radio
There’s no denying that The Jujubes are sleek, raw, but very, very distinguished. It’s blues/Rock but it’s refreshing, it’s not dated, it’s not old. The vocals are none other than sublime. Completely energised and exuberant. I urge you to stop listening to your mundane playlists and check out The Jujubes
Ashleigh Vaughan – RGM Magazine
What met me was a slow, sultry and smooth acoustic blues rock with not a little attitude. I think there’s enough here to make you want to go searching for more.
