Matt Long the guitarist was named Instrumentalist of the Year in the UK Blues Awards 2021. In the UK Blues Awards of May 2020, the band were named Band of the Year and Matt Long was named Blues Instrumentalist of the Year. In 2018 they won the UK Blues Award for Blues Act of the Year (England) to add to their 2016 British Blues Award.

In the last few years, they have played at almost every major UK blues festival and have established themselves as a real force in the British blues scene. They now tour regularly in Europe.

Their first two albums ‘So Many Roads’ and ‘€˜Broken Man’™ both reached no. 1 in the IBBA airplay charts. The second of these, ‘Broken Man’, was also nominated for a UK Blues Award and was named album of the year by the IBBA. Their third album 'Burning Bridges' was released in May 2019 and has received excellent reviews from the UK and European music press.

The Achievers

UK BLUES CHALLENGE WINNERS THE ACHIEVERS ARE ONE OF THE MOST TALKED ABOUT AND CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED BANDS ON THE UK BLUES AND ROOTS MUSIC SCENE. WITH A REPUTATION FOR INNOVATION AND ORIGINALITY THEY PROVE THAT SOUL, GROOVE AND SONG-CRAFT STILL MATTER IN THE BLUES.

IN LESS THAN 18 MONTHS THEIR OWN BRAND OF MODERN, SECULAR 'DANCEFLOOR GOSPEL-BLUES' HAS CATAPULTED THEM FROM NEAR-COMPLETE OBSCURITY TO RAVE REVIEWS AND BIG-STAGE APPEARANCES ACROSS THE WORLD. FOLLOWING THE RELEASE OF THEIR 2019 ALBUM 'THE LOST ARC' THEY RECEIVED RADIO AIRPLAY BY CERYS MATTHEW (BBC 2 BLUES SHOW) AND REACHED #1 IN THE INDEPENDENT BLUES BROADCASTERS AIRPLAY CHARTS.

IN SEPTEMBER 2019 THE BAND WON ONE OF THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS ACCOLADES IN BRITISH BLUES MUSIC WHEN THEY WERE SELECTED TO REPRESENT THE UK AT THE INTERNATIONAL AND EUROPEAN BLUES CHALLENGES IN 2020.

THE ACHIEVERS DRAW ON THEIR OBSESSION WITH AMERICAN VINTAGE DANCING MUSIC AND THE SONGWRITING PIONEERS OF EARLY RHYTHM & BLUES, AMERICANA AND SOUTHERN SOUL - AND WITH THEIR INFECTIOUS RHYTHMS, JOYFUL MELODIES AND FOUR-PART HARMONIES THEY STAND PROUDLY AS BRITISH BLUES & ROOTS OUTLIERS.
