Mick Hucknall releases his first ever solo album on May 19th, recorded in tribute to the legendary American singer Bobby `Blue' Bland. `Tribute to Bobby' is a twelve track master class in soul, blues and R&B and a tribute to one of Hucknall's most important inspirations and musical idols. On the album `Tribute to Bobby' Hucknall's compelling vocals emphasise the sentiment of each of the songs, whilst masterfully adopting the songs and making them entirely his own. The CD is released along with an exclusive DVD documentary about the making of the album, shot in the recording studio and in Memphis where Hucknall met Bland for the first time.
Mick's passion and respect for Bobby Bland is unquestioned
