Former Blues Pills guitarist Dorian Sorriaux launch new solo album “Children of the Moon”

14th June 2024 0 By Jon Deaux

Dorian Sorriaux launched his studio-recorded album “Children of the Moon” on The Sign Records. Best known for being the lead guitarist of Blues Pills for 6 years, Dorian has toured extensively all around Europe and Australia with Blue Pills playing some of the biggest European Festivals like Rock Am Ring, Hellfest, Download, Rock Werchter, Wacken, Roskilde, Sweden Rock, and opening for bands such as Deep Purple, John Fogerty, Rival Sons, and Europe. He was featured on the list of the “25 players who are changing guitar” in the Australian Guitar magazine in 2013, and also appeared on the list of Total Guitar’s “best new guitarist” in 2014. He released several EP’s, two studio albums, and two live albums before leaving the band in 2018.

Now focusing on his solo project, Dorian creates beautiful singer-songwriter and psychedelic folk music inspired by the artists of the 60s and 70s, such as Neil Young, Nick Drake, and Van Morrison. As a solo artist, Dorian has opened up for Myles Kennedy, Rival Sons, Colter Wall, Mikael Ramel, The Picturebooks. Besides this, he did a German and Austrian tour together with the Swedish band Black River Delta.

His new album “Children of the Moon” was recorded at ZF Prod studio in Brittany, France throughout 2021, mixed by Don Alsterberg (José Gonzalez, Junip, Graveyard, Blues Pills), and mastered by Hans Olsson (Bombus, Spiders, The Soundtrack of Our Lives) in Sweden.

Many young players look to the guitar heroes of the 60s and 70s for inspiration, but very few are able to channel their influences as mesmerizingly as Dorian Sorriaux. When the young French guitarist burst onto the scene with rockers Blues Pills, he displayed an incredible maturity and expressiveness as a musician that was captured on their 2014 self-titled debut. Comparisons with legendary bluesmen Peter Green and Paul Kossoff weren’t hyperbole; you could hear their quality in Dorian’s playing touch. Following the success of Blues Pills’ second album Lady In Gold (2016), Dorian Sorriaux revealed surprising new depths to his talent as a singer/songwriter with his debut solo EP Hungry Ghost. The EP received wonderful reviews and allowed Dorian to tour all over Europe as a solo act opening for Myles Kennedy. He now reveals a much more personal style of music and songwriting with his new record Children of the Moon.
