Over decades, from the roots, blues has grown to such a huge genre tree that it is not necessary for his leaves and fruit to resemble one another. In Scandinavia bands like the Blues Pills, Troubled Horse or Siena Root revive the essence of blues influenced hard rock for the nth time. In the US home of the blues, thanks to Jack White, Rival Sons or Black Stone Cherry, strong new branches grow from the great heritage.
Somewhere in that tree also sits Marius Tilly. Musicians like him profit from the fresh wind that is blowing high up in the crown of the modern blues tree. But how much of these roots is still audible on Words From The Wilderness? That’s merely a question of perspective. Of course, Marius Tilly knows the complete way from the root to the top by own experience.
