Joakim Tinderholt & his band was formed in 2005, by members from the legendary blues club Muddy Waters’ houseband, in addition to Tinderholt himself.
The band has released two records. The debut «You Gotta Do More», from 2014, was rewarded with nominations for a Norwegian Grammy and the American Blues Blast Music Awards. The follow-up, «Hold On», from 2017, gave another Norwegian Grammy nominations and multiple rave reviews.
Since the band signed with German record label Rhythm Bomb Records they’ve established themselves as a strong act on the European Blues- and Rock n’ roll scene, with performances at Screamin’ Festival (Spain), Rhythm Riot (England) and Moulin Blues (Holland) as some of the many highligts. The band represented Norway at the European Blues Challenge, in Hell, in 2018.
The new single «Love Is A 4 Letter Word» is out March 22nd on Big H Records and the band is booked at several high profile European festivals in 2019. Joakim Tinderholt will also perform in London, at the «Norwegian Blues Adventure», in November.
«Oslo-based singer and guitarist Tinderholt generates precisely the sort of good-time voltage that keeps vintage blues and r&b sounds relevant in the here-and-now. With a throwback vocal delivery that can carry the whole show on its shoulders.»
