biographical info

At the heart of Toronto's Blues Element is song writing duo Jamie Browning and Iain Green. Doubling on vocals and drums respectively, the pair now has 2 internationally acclaimed full length releases under their belts and the 3rd in preproduction.
Their 2005 release "Baby's Got The Blues" brought together the talents of some of the best players in Toronto's sprawling musical community including Alec Fraser, Rod Phillips, Michael Fonfara, Michael Keith, Dave Powell, Bryan Huntley, & Kenmi Chank. Recorded & mixed in the fall of 2004 at Liquid Toronto with blues maestro Alec Fraser wearing the engineer & producer hats, all 10 tracks on "Baby's Got The Blues" are still receiving airplay on jazz & blues programs all over Europe, Australia & North America, as well as in a few spots in Indonesia, South America, Africa & the Middle East.
The new album "Are You Ready" features 12 new original jazzy/blue future standards brought to life at Toronto's Wellesley Sound with Kenmi Chank, Garfield Stoddart, Jason Wilson, Justin Snikkar and Rebecca Campbell rounding out the cast this time. The album was produced by Iain and Jamie, mixed and mastered at Silverbirch Productions, and has followed BGTB to radio worldwide.
Live Blues Element continues to be an evolving entity, but the live show always starts with a fun, sexy & very danceable mix of original tunes plus mid 20th century R&B, funk, blues, & jazz. Artists covered include Dinah Washington, Ruth Brown, James Brown, Louis Jordan & more.
