Kyla Brox was declared the winner of the 5th UKBlues Challenge which took place at Worthing Pier's Southern Pavilion on Saturday 8th September 2018 and will be representing the UK joining more than 250 other acts from all over the world at the 35th International Blues Challenge (IBC) in Memphis, USA organised by the Blues Foundation between 22nd and 26th January 2019.

As part of UKBlues’ mission to support the Blues in the UK we have set up this crowd funding campaign to raise funds towards the considerable costs which will be incurred by the Kyla Brox representing the UK at the 2019 IBC & EBC.

By supporting this campaign, you will help Kyla and her band knock'em dead in Memphis and Sao Miguel and show the world that blues is very much our business here in the UK and that the US does not by any means have a monopoly!

Previous UK representatives at the EBC have been Ben Poole, 24 Pesos, Babajack, David Migden & the Twisted Roots, Laurence Jones, Red Butler and Kaz Hawkins Band, who won the 2017 European Blues Challenge, and LaVendore Rogue. Many of these acts have subsequently enjoyed great success in Europe.

Listen to Becky Tate of Babajack talking about how important their appearance at the European Blues Challenge in 2013 was for them

About the Band

Kyla's voice remains a stunning example of the soul singer's art: turning up the heat by degrees, lulling and charming before unleashing emotional catharsis, and blurring the distinction between pleasure and pain like the soul greats of old. Whether fronting the mighty Kyla Brox Band, or harnessing undiluted soul power in a duo with musical and life partner Danny Blomeley, Kyla Brox is without doubt the most authentic UK blues and soul singer of her generation.
