"There's an exciting new composer in our midst. Bluebloods' music is that perfect mix of leading-edge style and classical craft. It's the Beatles meets Oscar Wilde meets Igor Stravinsky meets Spike Jones. Irresistible."
-Glenn Buhr, Professor of Music Composition at Wilfrid Laurier University and Broken Songs Band-leader
"We haven't been able to stop listening... We would love to hear more from Bluebloods"
Reared musically in an Anglican boys choir, Bluebloods’ central creator Conrad Sweatman (guitarist, producer, songwriter) was born in Winnipeg, Treaty 1 land, and lived long enough in London (UK) to learn a thing or two about making laptop music. He is grateful to have moved home, permanently it seems, to Manitoba. There, he collaborates with singers and other musicians to create the sounds of Bluebloods, whose cheeky name refers to the noble blue-collar lineage and subarctic ice running through Manitoba’s veins.
Bluebloods’ debut EP Make It Rain (release date 12 November 2019), is a strikingly original and infectious work, seamlessly blending classical, Jai Paul-inspired R&B, and EDM over five songs. Lush, acoustic harmonies cradle elegant melodies, punctuated by 808 bass and bursts of electro zaniness. Led by producer, guitarist, and songwriter Conrad Sweatman, Bluebloods’ line-up of guest singers include Courtney Devon (Amadians), Roman Clarke, and others.
The Make It Rain EP deals largely with the ‘fly-over country’ that extends roughly from Michigan to Saskatchewan: clandestine dances in Mennonite Manitoba, Dust Bowl and dominatrixes, and the post-industrialization of Detroit.
