The Irish dark folk / blues combo RUFUS COATES & THE BLACKENED TREES are a unique, dark and atmospheric blues/folk band from Ireland currently based in Berlin Germany. In Ireland, the album was already voted the album of the week in the Irish Times and even secured the number one of the iTunes Blues charts. The deep voice of Rufus Coates creates a beautiful contrast to the gentle vocals of his bandmate Jess Smith. The dense atmosphere of the music immediately draws the listener into another world and is perfectly suited to escape everyday life. Their live show is one not to be missed and always promises to be an atmospheric and heartfelt affair. Since moving to Berlin the couple have established themselves as a must see act on the Berlin scene, as well as touring extensively around Europe. Over the past few months the duo have been working with producer Cameron Laing at The Famous Gold Watch on a new album “Not for the Gallery” which is to be released in the Autumn 2019.
