Every blues fan knows you have listen to the “old” to find something “new”. It is a precious rarity when the opposite is true and such is the case with Toots Lorraine & The Traffic. The band delivers a focused blend of classic vibe that will drench your soul with the vintage sounds of West Coast Jump Blues and Swing as you board the train for destination “way back” where everything is, well… easy.

Toots Lorraine's brand new album, Make It Easy, is available now! Recorded in the blues hub of California at the infamous Greaseland Studios, this record is a phenomenal follow-up to their first and pays tribute to the ancestry of American Roots music. From Chicago style blues to that west coast jump, you’ll hear a combination of classic blues covers and gripping new originals.

Toots Lorraine

This husband and wife team share the purest of love for the preservation of the blues. Toots Lorraine expertly layers her powerful yet velvety voice amongst the band’s vintage instrumentation and gut bucket grooves. Along with classic blues covers of Big Mama Thornton, Howlin’ Wolf and Big Joe Turner, you’ll also find new originals with a huge story to tell.

Toots will take your ticket, let you on board and, as you roll down the tracks, the band will keep your glass filled with just the right measures of hollow body guitars, reverb tanks, upright basses, harmonicas, pianos and organs. And, you will swear to yourself, “I ain’t getting off this train”.
