Following his return from Memphis USA where he placed top 8 in the prestigious International Blues Challenge, Sydney-based award-winning guitarist Ray Beadle released his first album in 7 years in the form of The 301 Live Session.
Featuring Ray Beadle on guitar & vocals, Jonathan Zwartz on double bass and Andrew Dickeson on snare & brushes, The 301 Live Session saw the trio hit Studios 301 in March 2020 to record the 9-track album. Recorded and produced by Stefan Du Rant, mastered by 301’s Steve Smart and executively produced by Geoff Trio & Ron Haryanto, the result is a slick collection of selected Beadle originals and legendary blues numbers (covering the likes of Robert Johnson, J.B. Lenoir, Louis Jordan, L.J. Welch, Joseph Perkins Greene, Muddy Waters and J. Smith).
Released on July 10 2020, The 301 Live Session is the seventh release for Beadle who says; “Recording this live in studio album was spontaneous and fun. I’m very grateful to be joined by two of the finest musicians I know.”

The Guitar – Organ – Drums Trio
When Ray Beadle, Clayton Doley & Andrew Dickeson, hit the stage they electrify audiences with their deliciously Soulful and Bluesy Jazz Organ Trio. It’s one of best collaborations the world has seen since Wes Montomery, Jimmy Smith and Grady Tate got together in the 60′s to change the shape of Jazz as we know it.
Ray’s Burning guitar is as smooth as hot butter and faster than a speeding bullet, Clayton’s Hammond and Leslie is grooving and spinning like a category 5 hurricane destroying all in its wake, Andrew’s drumming is swinging like a freight train exploding out of a tunnel into the light.
These guys are not only keeping the 60′s souljazz groove alive in Australia, they are pushing it to a new level, modernising it and putting their own unique blues stamp on it! Must be seen to be believed.
