"It's a gem, musically and technically ... Boyes has a way of drawing in the listener into her stories. It's very intimate, very personal. Like Billie Holiday and Bessie Smith, Boyes takes you on her journey ... you'll enjoy the ride ... now, to the recording. Equally brilliant and honest ... captures in flawless detail the myriad of colours of all the instruments ... if you want to test your system on micro dynamics, a voice dead centre in all its unaffected glory and subtlety in accompaniment, then this CD is for you. It's not only a technical tour de force, it's one of the most musical albums it has been my pleasure to review this year. Very highly recommended."
- Audiophilia

Australian blues guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Fiona Boyes proclaims her passion for the blues as she celebrates the unique contribution of recording and mastering engineer "Professor" Keith O. Johnson, Reference's technical director and a legend among audiophiles. Boyes states that Johnson's amazing approach to capturing sounds, mostly with his own handmade equipment, is nothing short of sonic alchemy. In solo, duo and trio settings, Boyes presents 14 originals and two covers, playing a traditional acoustic guitar, metal body resonators and a unique four-string cigar box guitar. Professin' the Blues was recorded at Skywalker Sound in Marin County, California, live in real time with no overdubs or effects, like all Johnson's sessions.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
