ONE of the country's most exciting blues and rock guitarists is coming to Worcestershire as part of his nationwide tour kicking off next month.

Félix Rabin is playing with his band at Joe Joe Jim's in Cofton Hackett on October 4, as part of his UK tour, which takes him to cities across the country including Birmingham, Nottingham, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The 23 year old singer-songwriter grew up in Brittany with his parents before moving back to Switzerland, and was inspired by musicians including Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Pink Floyd.

Loving music as long as he can recall, the desire to play came suddenly and when Félix picked up his first guitar at 15.

On his website he says that his love of music as a teenager, eventually meeting Quincy Jones at the Montreux Jazz Festival.

In 2018 Félix was special guest on the Wishbone Ash XLIX UK Tour and played to around 10,000 music fans at 28 venues across the country with his band.

His first stand alone tour in April 2019 was so successful with music fans across the country that a revisit later in the year from his home in Switzerland was 'inevitable and irresistible' to the young artist.

On this Félix said; "It was an incredible feeling to get back in some cities and to hear people coming to us saying they discovered us during our tour with Wishbone Ash and absolutely wanted to see us again.

"So five months after our last tour, we're more than excited to come back and play around the UK one more time, rocking time ahead."

With a pressing demand for an album, in June Felix travelled to studios in Los Angeles to record his debut EP.

He added: “One of the reasons why it took me so much time to organize, was that it took place in the States and getting the studio and producer I wanted was time consuming, but fortunately everything finally came together."

The album will be released early next year.
