"AWEK" (2021)
2020 was a trying year for most of us, and although we missed performing live, we found a silver lining to the lockdown. It afforded us the time to reflect, write, rehearse, and finally to record.

This CD showcases AWEK’s rich style and diversity with its’ varied melodies, rhythms, and tempos. After more than 26 years together, from the first note to the last, AWEK continues to deliver authentic blues.

"Burnin' Wire on South Lamar" (2007)
Their reputation and experience have led the group to Austin, Texas where in April 2007 they recorded with Stuart Sullivan , well-known for his work with Kim Wilson, Jimmy Vaughn etc…) Despite the omnipresence of the Chicago Blues feel, a touch of the West Coast Sound has opened up new avenues for the quartet.
A little help from a few of Austin's musical luminaries such as Mark "Kaz" Kazanoff, "Mr Blues Sax" himself and Nick Connely (Delbert McClinton, Fabulous Thunderbirds) on a number of tracks and "Burnin' Wire on South Lamar" can lay claim to being one of the best blues offerings in recent years. .
