 About

Slide Tracked is the coming together of Tim Jones and Rich Turner, primarily but not exclusively, as a blues duo. Whilst both are guitarists, they have contrasting but perfectly complimentary styles.

Tim JonesTim Jones is known for his effortless electric lead style, drawing from his early inspirations such as Freddie and the other Kings, B.B. and Albert. Rich T is more old skool. His down home finger style slide guitar creates the rhythm behind Slide Tracked, whether electric or acoustic. Both Rich T and Tim share vocal duties.

Tim’s pedigree is without question, having played with many of the original members of the 1960's British Blues Boom. As such, working alongside Dick Heckstall-Smith and Victor Brox in Mainsqueeze gave him the opportunity to play with legends such as James Cotton and Alexis Korner. Subsequently, he was invited to form part of Bo Diddley's band touring Europe and Scandinavia.

Rich TurnerRich T cites his main influences as Mississippi Fred McDowell, R.L. Burnside and Blind Willie Johnson, but has immersed himself in all aspects of the blues for the last 25 years. He has been and still is, one half of acoustic blues duo Steel Union, who have been around since 2006 and most recently released the well received album “Life…and Other Problems!”.

Unlike many bands, Slide Tracked has not been put together as a gigging band. That is not to say gigging is off limits for them, its just not their prime focus. Their passion comes from playing, writing, recording and sharing their music, and they hope you enjoy it!

Slide Tracked debuted with EP “Working So Hard” in Nov 2017. Five original tracks, each featuring Tim and Rich on their two guitars. The EP was just outside the top 20 on the IBBA Blues Chart for Dec 2017 and Jan 2018.

Slide Tracked are now following up with new EP “Hoping for Grace” in May 2018. Again, five original tracks, each featuring Tim and Rich on their two guitars.

Slide Tracked are based in Kettering, Northamptonshire, UK.
