The Blues are Knockin’ is this duo’s sophomore release, and it demonstrates the strong musical rapport the two artist have developed. Markey and Latina never sound like they’re competing for the listener’s attention. Instead, they bring out the best in one another.
The Nashville duo’s polished contemporary blues sound reveals a deep love of Memphis soul. Markey Blue’s creativity and seamless team work make for joyous listening.

It’s well-paced music that’s guaranteed to get your toes tapping and your feet on the dance floor.
The Blues Are Knockin’ delivers a strong dose of original, modern blues and, like the band’s first release, proves once again that Markey Blue is a band on the rise. Strongly recommended.
Blues Blast Magazine 2016
“The worthy cynosure is Markey whose vocal exhibit range and depth motion and conviction. In comparison she most resembles contemporary award winning chanteuse Janiva Magness; don’t be surprised if Markey is winning her own accolades and prizes soon. She can coo and cajole with the best, and most impresses with the power of her singing. The woman has pipes!”
