ABOUT BLUES PILLS BLUES PILLS have dedicated their lives to the timeless and noble art of rock ‘n’ roll and seek to know the things kept hidden in your memories. This young American-Swedish-French quartet create unique, intense, and extraordinary rock. They have a music lovers’ appeal that takes you right back to the time of BLUES PILLS’ ancestors: The Original Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, and yes, even Janis Joplin. The driving bass lines, grooving drums, and solos from another planet by their 18-year-old guitarist are all harmonized and tied together with ease & delight by Elin Larsson’s voice, which proves itself experienced and wiser beyond its years. Taking soulful music and combining it with blues and rock ‘n’ roll to tap into a musical force of revitalizing intensity, BLUE PILLS’ blonde archangel & soul-saving front woman Elin Larsson will gently guide you into an empire of soulful, bluesy rock where the still-warm breath of their musical predecessors can still be felt. Elin’s transcendent voice will take you on a journey beyond the stars through an infinite universe that is profound in its revelations. With lyrics full of powerful emotions, Elin’s soulful voice unfolds the strong beauty of its own inner-light. Sit back and relax, and dive into a astral, musical world bathed in a hundred points of light shining from a field bathed in breathing shades of sapphire / indigo / azure / ultramarine.
