For lead singer Raul Malo, The Mavericks' reunion in 2012 is a testament to faith, fate, and chance. For drummer Paul Deakin, it's rekindled a way of being in tune we don't have with anyone else, while bassist Robert Reynolds encapsulates the mood of new Mavericks album In Time - out January 2013 - as big love, big loss, big joy - and party! Cited influences on the album range from Dean Martin to ZZ Top, George Jones to Ravel, enriching the Mavericks' famously no-borders fusion of country, garage, Latin, soul and torch-song sounds with fresh passion and deep-dyed maturity.
Winners of a Danny Kyle Open Stage Award at Celtic Connections 2012, The Black Diamond Express are an eight-piece alternative blues band from Edinburgh, channelling Prohibition-era Chicago in original songs laced with dobro, fiddle and harmonica.
