Aynsley Lister Band
Donnerstag 18.02.10 Leonberg/Uhlenspiegel

Besetzung: Simon Small - Drums, Dan Healey - Keyboards, Midus Guerreiro - Bass und Aynsley Lister an den Gitarren

Mit seiner neuen CD- EQUILIBRIUM im Gepäck lieferte der erstklassige Gitarrist aus England einen sehr soliden Auftritt. Bei dem ersten Konzert in Deutschland meist von Bluesrock strotzenden Rhytmen bis hin zum sehr gefühlvollen Mainstream. Technisch perfekt, cool und mit einer Leichtigkeit, spielten sich die vier in die Herzen des Puplikums. Bewaffnet mit einer Fender Strat und einer Gibson und vielen und endlosen wunderbaren langen Gitarren Solos, die dann auch die neuen Stücke dominierten. Auch stimmlich absolut überzeugend. Ein noch bisher unver- öffentlichtes sehr gutes Stück und eine brilliante Version des Prince Klassikers Purple Rain waren der offizielle Schluss des Abends, bevor Lister plus Band noch zwei Zugaben spielten. Attention!! die Chance ergreifen wenns möglich ist und ein Konzert der Band auf der Tour besuchen. Auf Aynsleys Homepage unbedingt Tourdaten  checken ...awesome Musicians with music from the heart and one of the best Guitar Player!! EQUILIBRIUM !!!!

 Aynsley picked up the guitar at 8 and played his first gig at 13. One year later, on a family trip to San Francisco, he was jamming at ‘Lou’s Bar’ on Pier 49. By the time he was 18, he had worked his way through various bands and decided to form his own. The band recorded two albums and it was the second of these two that started things happening. Aynsley had begun writing and it was the three original numbers of this album that attracted the attention of Ruf Records’ head honcho Thomas Ruf. This was the start of a long and fruitful career taking Aynsley all over Europe and America ,working with some of the top names on the circuit. In the years following the release of his first album.,Aynsley opened for artists such as Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, John Mayall and contemporaries such as Bryan Adams and Fun Lovin Criminals. .
Between the years 2000 and 2007 released 4 albums on Ruf Records. The first ‘Everything I Need’ , was produced by Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, Catatonia). This was followed by a solo album “Supakev n Pilchards”, then ‘All Or Nothing’.In 2007 Aynsley released the self produced album ‘Upside Down’. .
Aynsley was the only British artist to be featured in Classic Rocks 2007 review: TOP 10 CONTEMPORARY BLUES ROCK ARTISTS….......alongside The White Stripes, The Black Keys, John Mayer, Jon Spencer, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Joe Bonamassa, Derek Trucks and the North Mississippi Allstars. .
In June of 2008 Aynsley signed to Manhaton Records and ‘Equilibrium’ was released in March 2009. ‘Equilibrium’ was produced by Steve Darrel Smith and features appearances by Robbie McIntosh (John Mayer band) and also heralds a new direction for Aynsley. Equilibrium justifies Aynsley Lister’s position as a leading light in the rock/blues arena. Aynsley is one of very few artists playing rocking blues with a modern edge - tangible, heartfelt, soul searching and full of fine songwriting; played with passion, vitality and simply stunning guitar work- reminiscent of a young Clapton. .
This new album has received rave reviews everywhere. Classic Rock has listed Equilibrium in the Top 50 albums released so far in 2009. In the past few months Aynsley has had feature interviews in Classic Rock, Guitarist, Guitar Techniques, Rock N Reel, Maverick, Record Collector & Blues in Britain. Aynsley has recorded ‘live’ sessions for Bob Harris, Paul Jones & Jazz FM. Sheduled for May this year a Live CD will bring out.!!! (Text from Aynsleys My Space Site)
