Dom Turner (Backsliders) and Ian Collard (Collard Greens and Gravy) – Debut album “Mama Thinks We’re Crazy Too” 2012 

“Turner and Collard show here why they’re at the forefront of blues in the modern age, re-crafting these songs with a passion that will never die” Samuel J Fell, Sydney Morning Herald, 2012 

Take your mind back to a time before mindless 120 beats per minute pop dominated the airwaves - to the early 20th century – when the raw sounds of harmonicas and guitars meant real music for the people. This was a deep, dark, and tantalizingly evil mix of rural blues that was played and recorded by musicians throughout the southern states of the USA and broadcast over the radio waves even further. 

Meanwhile – quite a few years later – and even further down south, in Australia, Dom Turner (Backsliders) and Ian Collard (Collard, Greens & Gravy) became obsessed with the sound and spent most of their adult lives studying and playing it. 

Dom Turner and Ian Collard have recorded a debut album, ‘Mama Says we’re Crazy Too” released in January 2012. 

Working as a Guitar/Harmonica duo, Dom Turner and Ian Collard strip the music back to its rural beginnings. At the heart of their sound is the north Mississippi hill-country music of Mississippi Fred McDowell and Johnny Woods mixed in with the pre-war blues sounds of artists such as Skip James, Blind Willie Mc Tell and Lead Belly.
