About Band

The Story of Blue Condition

Initially formed in 2005 as a recording project, Blue Condition has recently become a full live performing band. Its music ranges in style from the contemplative emotional state to the fist-in-the-air rock anthem. Blue Condition creates the sounds of the blues rock era re-interpreted through a modern lens. Where excess is the rule of thumb, prepare to experience the best of the blues.

Blue Condition defies genre sound and transforms blues and alternative rock with powerful, soulful vocals. The composition echoes the work of Robert Johnson, Zeppelin, Chris Whitley, The Eagles, Free, & The Black Crowes or even hints of artists like Arc Angels, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Storyville and Double Trouble surround the style. Performing poetic vocals, harmonizing and slide guitar, powerful drum beats with rythmatic emotion telling the story of Blue Condition.

The bands influences are blues/classic rock/alternative (progressive guitar playing by Eric Johnson, Jeff Buckley, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Andy Timmons, ZZ Top and ACDC).

Blue Condition plays a blend of guitar and vocal driven blues/classic rock/alternative with big, catchy pop hooks.

Mainstream artists comparable to Blue Condition instrumentally are The Eagles, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Free, The Black Crowes, Gin Blossoms, Chris Whitley, and ZZ Top.

What Others Are Saying

Influenced by classic rock and American blues music, as well as more recent radio bands like Gin Blossoms and Goo Goo Dolls, Blue Condition balances the grit of vintage tones with innovative songwriting to create catchy tunes that simultaneously sound both familiar and new. In contrast with similarly rootsy contemporaries like the Black Crowes or Black Keys, Blue Condition’s singer Michael Elford inflects with his natural voice, creating an interesting contrast.

On the upbeat opening number “Where You Goin,” while the band fashions blues-tinged rock out of Dobros, slide guitars, Matchless amps and old Fender gear, Elford’s smooth tenor floats above the instrumentation sounding more relevant than retro. The title track riffs on a humble boogie-rock groove before Elford’s smoky voice ushers in the group who play with a clearly honed chemistry while boasting some impressive accompanying vocal harmonies. Not since U2’s Rattle and Hum has a band so fluidly balanced bygone bluesy resonance with modern day pop sensibilities.
