'' their unique sound, fusing classic 60s soul with jazz arrangements and a rhythm section which can skip from hip-hop beats to Latin to funk. The Queensbury House Sessions is their new album, sixteen extraordinary tracks, each recorded in just one take at a disused office block (called, yes, Queensbury House) to truly capture their live sound.''

Somebody Told Me

The Fabulous Red Diesel’s ‘The Queensbury House Sessions’ is an incredible modern-soul jazz release

A collective quite unlike any other you’ll come across, The Fabulous Red Diesel are innovative and creating music without a specific label. Quirky and armed with everything you’d want from a ‘soul meets jazz collective’, ‘The Queensbury House Sessions’ is for fans of Madeline Peyroux, Joni Mitchell & even Frank Zappa.

AI’m going to start this one by saying how amazing this song is. It takes a lot for me to get on board with a tune, but this, in my opinion, is a genuine music masterclass.dd a subheading

Now you’re up to date with the background of the song, let’s get into the serious stuff, the review.

Putting their stamp on the track from the start, the band open up with a gorgeous soul-jazz combo, perfectly offset by the heavy bass. After settling in to the track, we’re given another level with the introduction of the keyboard.

From the off, the timing and intelligence to marry up the instruments proves just how much talent these guys have got in their locker. Needless to say, they prove this throughout the whole of ‘Butterfly Mind’.

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Nick Endacott Gibb. 

''Beyond the theatrics of make-up that’s just a little extra, peacock feather ‘n’ tie-dye shirts and rainbow-emitting disco balls lies a voice with the call of the sirens and a hot handle on the blues. Kat Lee-Ryan, from the saucy band The Fabulous Red Diesel, belts out stark and original lyrics with soul-felt tonality.''

''The Fabulous Red Diesel are a long established local band with a wide following. Having trudged through the downbeat wintry Hastings to get to the event I was amazed by the life and warmth in the venue. Kat Lee Ryan’s compositions struck me as a kind of Hastings cabaret telling the stories of eccentric locals and I wasn’t that far off the mark. They certainly are both quirky and eclectic. Touches of soul and jazz, 60s, funk and humour (which does belong in music).''  Nick Weekes

Lead singer and keyboardist Kat Lee-Ryan was in fine voice, with other talented members of the band performing superb basslines, guitar and trumpet solos and irresistible drum licks. (full article below)''
