Blues Noir plays a unique blend of original blues and roots music. Their fourth and newest CD, Noir Album has 15 original songs. Peter Corrigan is a prolific songwriter whose lyrics exhibit wit as well as serious emotions. Peter can strap on his Epiphone archtop electric guitar and cut a dead-on T-Bone Walker/West Coast jump style blues, then pick up his National Tricone guitar and take you down to the Mississippi Delta with an original blues laced with searing slide guitar and stark lyrics. The rhythm section of Scotty T on Fender electric bass and John Nichols on drums and backing vocals provide a rock-solid bottom for the band's songs. These are not local wannabes playing cookie cutter imitations of the real thing. Corrigan's lyrics are some of the blackest in every sense of the word that I've ever heard come from any local artist. Corrigan & company pull off Blues Noir's 'black night' image with style and believability, and their playing has improved with age. - Donald E. Wilcox, BLUESprint With a feel that is equal parts rock 'n' roll and backyard blues, BLUES NOIR is capable of putting a smile on your face. - Michael Korb, The Saratogian Guitarist Peter Corrigan can cut heads with the best. What's more he can do it with a jumping T-Bone Walker riff, a stinging Son House slide lick or a Bukka White boogie. Also, unlike many generic blues outfits, the Noir gang creates almost all of their own appropriately dark material. - Michael Eck, albany2go.com.
