The Achievers are one of the most talked about and critically acclaimed new bands on the UK Blues and Roots Music scene. Lauded as THE success story of 2018, the UK & European Blues press agree that The Achievers are one of the most original and exciting bands to emerge in recent times.

Injecting a fresh sense of excitement and creativity into trusted Blues traditions The Achievers leave festival and club audiences elated. Layered with four-part harmonies, joyful melodies and infectious, danceable rhythms there has never been a better time to see and hear. Some call it Rhythm & Blues, some call it Roots, some call it 'Dance Floor Gospel'. Whatever it is, Their unique approach and willingness to move away from familiar guitar-solo orientated styles prove that soul , groove and song-craft still matter in the blues.
