Sari Schorr & The Engine Room have listed a run of UK dates surrounding their debut album release.

The former Joe Louis Walker vocalist and New York Blues Hall Of Fame inductee’s band includes guitarist Innes Sibun, while the record features guest appearances by Walter Trout and others. It’s been produced by Mike Vernon.

Schorr says: “It’s been a tremendous honour to work with Mike. His passion for producing great music is intractable – he ’s a true visionary.

“I’ll be forever grateful to have been given this extraordinary opportunity to record the music I love with artists I so deeply admire.”

It’s set for launch on August 19 via Manhaton Records – just before Schorr appears at this year’s revamped Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
