It took just over half a year until a new musical revelation from blues singer and guitarist Bad Temper Joe followed the acclaimed acoustic album "Double Trouble". The "Double Trouble EP" can be seen as an extension to the predecessor and contains, in addition to the album version of the title track, four previously unreleased songs or versions. These include an outtake from the Double Trouble recording session, a live version of the song "If Tears Were Diamonds", as well as electric band versions of the title track and "Beggar's Velvet Serenade", a song from the 2015 album Tough Ain't Easy. In keeping with the release, the 24-year-old, who has already shared the stage with Jessy Martens, Tommy Schneller, Greyhound George and blues runner-up Michael van Merwyk, is again drawn to the streets, to various festivals and to the pubs and clubs of the nation before he will end the year with a tour of Belgium. Bad Temper Joe has found his way and moves on without rest, from concert to concert, from recording session to recording session. The "Double Trouble EP" is the fifth release within two years and it shouldn't have been the last.
