Lazy Man's Land (2017)
Besser als mit dem gelungenen Debütalbum "Lazy Man's Land" kann man die nationale Bluesszene nicht erobern, bisher haben Till Seidel und seine Band alles richtig gemacht. Klare Empfehlung für das Album.

"Lazy Man's Land" ist ein großartiges Album nicht nur für Freunde des Retroblues. Und mit Sicherheit ist das bislang das Debüt des Jahres für mich - und das nicht nur aus Deutschland!
- Raimund Nitzsche - (Wasser-Prawda)
The thing you grab in your hands, is the debut album of
my Pal the singer/guitarist/composer Till Seidel from
Germany!! You might say “well another Blues Music
CD, from a new european picker, blablabla blabla
Lemme tell you that you are wrong. Till is a “new” young european artist (only 26 years ol’) that you must count with for the next decade into the European Blues/Afro-American Scene, ain’t no doubt about it... His guitar tone reminds me the 3 Kings, as young Buddy Guy, Fenton Robinson, Mighty Joe Young, and some other Westside Blues cats from the Late 60’s...
He’s not only a great and accomplished Guitar Slinger,
man the vocal is soulful, and it’s like a fresh breeze in
the face. Till doesn’t try to sing and play like someone
else. He sings with his own voice, plays his own stuff, his
art is straight from the bottom of the heart. No lies, no
bullshit!!! I bet, this EP is going to satisfy your Soul just
like mine!! I like it/him so much and your lil sister will

Music-Style: 70's Rhythm & Blues
The Till Seidel Band stands for young and fresh rhythm 'n' blues, with a clear emphasis on rhythm.
The mixture of experience and youthful freshness, with musicians like Dirk Vollbrecht (RJ Mischo, Jan Mohr) and Dennis Koeckstadt (BB & The Blues Shacks) on one side and Till Seidel (24 years) and Malte Albers (23 years) on the other Page, can be described as unique in Germany's blues landscape.
Here is cleaned up with dusty blues prejudices!
So spend your last dime and have a good time, when this blurry kicks you outta your shoes. Lock your daughters, grandmas and wives, cause these motherfunkers are sharp as knives !!!!
"All Kings So Missing From One Source - Till Seidel Has Internalized Them" (Andreas Arlt, B.B. & The Blues Shacks)
The guitarist Till Seidel from Hildesheim offers retro blues at its best with his band on the current album "Lazy Man's Land". This disc is one of the most convincing debuts of German musicians
in recent years.
Till Seidel is only in his mid-twenties. Nevertheless, his music is deeply rooted in the blues of the 1960s. Next to B. B. King, Freddie King and Otis Rush, he stands on Little Milton, O.V. Wright and Al Green. In the 60s, so many elements of blues and soul mingled skillfully in the R & B. "In the fall of 2015 he was able to prove himself to the American public with his kind of R & B.
He accompanied B.B. & The Blues Shacks on their California tour and was able to inspire the audience in the opening act. In addition to the audience, he was able to convince Radio DJ Art Martel (Straight Up Blues Productions, Delta Groove) as well as journalist David Mac (Blues Junction).
"If people say blues are boring, I could get out of the woods, and from the twenties to the '60s, no genre can offer more variety."
Quote, Till Seidel
In the October issue of 2016, bluesnews magazine dedicated a two-page feature to it, drawing attention in Germany to the newcomer. As the magazine said: "This is where the retro blues band of the
future comes in. There was nothing better to hear for a long time."
When you grow up as a young musician in a city like Hildesheim, where many great German blues bands have emerged, it's easy to discover the versatility and fascination of the blues. And so it comes as no surprise that Till Seidel sought as an infant an alternative to the plastic music of the radio, and ultimately landed at the blues. As a guitarist in various bands he played for a long time mainly the blues of the 50s.
His own preferences are, however, a few years after the electric blues explosion in Chicago. His guitar playing is more oriented towards B. B. and the other Kings, to T-Bone Walker or Johnny Guitar Watson than to Chicago blues.
When Till starts to sing, the surprise is complete: not just a fantastic guitarist with a first-class band. Seidel is also an immediately gripping singer who can convince even in slow soul blues! So you get to hear a music that grooves and swings that makes you almost off your stool.
Till Seidel is definitely one of the Bluesent covers in Germany.
