International touring blues rock powerhouse Catfish are making waves on the music scene in the UK and Europe. In 2018 they won the UK Blues Award for Blues Act of the Year (England) to add to their 2016 British Blues Award. They have recently been nominated for three UK Blues Awards for 2020 - Band of the Year, Blues Instrumentalist of the Year (Matt Long) and album of the year for Burning Bridges.
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 current album 'Burning Bridges' was released in May 2019 and has received excellent reviews from the UK and European music press. It was the third most played album by the Independent Blues Broadcasters Association in 2019 and has been nominated for a UK blues award for 2020 as album of the year.
Quotes from the press

'Catfish are one of the finest live bands in Britain today. The quality of musicianship is outstanding and in Matt Long, they have one of the greatest young guitarists on the scene today...' Blues Matters Magazine.

‘Catfish can only consolidate their place at the very top of the Blues-Rock scene with this impressive album’ Blues in Britain Magazine, May 2019

‘… this is so much more than just a blues album: you have blues, rock, gospel and all sorts of other influences that go into making this album a must have in your collection. Prepare to have your face melted by some of these tracks, pure class.’ Will Carter, Two Finger Media

‘The strong buzz that has been going around about this new album and proclaiming Catfish as one of the hottest bands of the decade aren’t wrong: the writing, playing and sheer balls-out power of this band is remarkable…The monumental ‘Exile’ has the massive intensity of Metallica at their best – slow, passionate and with an air of danger, it is worthy of closing the album and I should think it will be a stage killer for years to come…It is such a joy to hear a relatively new band who are as talented and as convincing as Catfish.’ Andy Snipper, Music-News.com
