Review of promo CD "Maggie Ross and Phoenix Blues"in Blues Matters! Magazine - Vol 50 - Aug/Sept 2009
In January 2009, Maggie Ross walked onto the Blues Matters! stage at session. It is no exaggeration to say she blew the crowd away. Maggie at that point decided she wanted to sing the blues and put together a band called Phoenix Blues. This is their first EP,
This band is one of those rarities, it is new like the fountain of youth and like the fountain of youth they have been around a long time. It comprises Maggie as vocalist and songmeister, with Martin Craggs as guitarist and songmeister and John Chaytor on bass and songmeistering… All ably supported by Dave Dodsworth on drums.
Review of demo album "Don't Mess With Me" by the Maggie Ross Band. In Blues Matters! Magazine - Vol. 63 - Nov/Dec 2011
Maggie Ross is a wee blonde bombshell from Geordie-land - its cold up there - I know; she told me - it snows in July (well OK, maybe she didn't say that) so the music needs to be hot. This certainly is hot, especially the boogie based opening title track ‘Don't Mess with Me'. They got it dead right on this one and its cooking - great boogie feel, fat dirty guitar and wildcat vocal. Seriously if they voted Joanne Shaw Taylor best British female blues vocalist in those blues awards then they were looking in the wrong place because Maggie is by light years a better singer - and she's singing in her own natural voice. It sounds ‘real'.
