‘A Long Way From Heaven…’ is a 6-track mini album highlighting the work of Wily Bo Walker and Kareña K. Their voices, described as barbed wire and angels, bourbon and roses, work so well together and, in these original songs, showcase their talent and artistry.
Wily Bo was nominated for Best Male Vocalist in the 2014 British Blues Awards and his solo single ‘I Want To Know’, which features Kareña on backing vocals, was also considered for a Grammy nomination for 2015 in the ‘Traditional R&B’ category.
This album continues their work in producing timeless blues-infused music for all.
From the ultra-cool and quirky acapella of ‘Love Will Find A Way’, the enormous ballad production of ‘Long Way To Heaven’, the film noir swing of ‘Rendezvous des Cheminots’ through various styles of blues in ‘Angels in the Night’, ‘Did I Forget’ and ‘Light at the End of the Tunnel’ this album is a set of tracks that can only be described as ‘classic’.
