Cherry Lee Mewis is a British Blues Award nominee and is described as "Dashes of ragtime, country blues, rock n roll and a blade of bluegrass, all cemented together with pint-sized Cherry's powerhouse, energy-a-plenty, smoky vocals." The Cherry Lee Mewis band are Cherry, Max Milligan, (acoustic guitar) Robbie Stewart-Mathews (double bass & blues harp), Nick Slater (dobro) & Brian Greene (drums).

“Cherry is ballsy, soulful, flirtatious” says Classic Rock 

Championed by Imelda May, Seasick Steve and Walter Trout, CHERRY LEE MEWIS is a pint sized vocal powerhouse from north Wales who has helped turn roots 'n' blues music into a cool, swinging fusion that's both classic and stylishly modern.

Cherry has now been out to Memphis several times, including a performance at the legendary BB King's on Beale Street and Morgan Freeman's Ground Zero Blue Club in Clarksdale where the man himself came to see her. She has recently been recording at legendary Abbey Road Studios, where she is guesting on Bernie Marsden's new album.

CLM's 6th release Voyage, out now, co-written with guitarist Max Milligan, is a heady mix of foot-stomping barnburners to bluesy slow-cooked rockers with a spoonful of jazzy shuffle, supported by a band of slick, smokin' musicians.
