“Simple music is the hardest music to play and blues is simple music”. – Albert Collins


Starting this Blues Boom round-up with Ron Addison‘s ‘Carlettaa latin flavored, blues rock number, taken from 2022’s album ‘Ride On‘… 

Spyderhuff‘s most recent single ‘Girl in the Photo‘ is a dense, heavy, blues rock hybrid, and the third in the SIN7 series about the Seven Deadly Sins, which features Tom Kuhr (vocals, guitar, sax, synth), Don Beyer (bass), Tony Mitchell (drums), & Joey Gaydos (lead guitar)…

Hailing from Seattle Stacy Jones pays homage to the blues but experiments by mixing in some mild-Americana and subtle country licks and dynamic vocals, with her roots, country-blues rock banger ‘Jefferson Way‘!

Carsten Schnell‘s ‘Why Do You Lie To Me?‘, is a highly atmospheric, instrumental, blues rock treasure, with impeccable guitar performance, better experienced, during the endless, lonely winter nights…. Timeless!

 SOUL MAN‘s (from the group SOUND) ‘Imma Soul Man‘ is a superb, soulful, delta blues ear-candy, unleashing raw emotion in its every single second.

Some Nicholson‘s cover of the phenomenal Led Zeppelin‘s ‘Babe I’m Gonna Leave You‘ is an authoritative, acoustic blues version, that reveals another artistic dimension of this magnum opus! Stay tuned for their soon to be published 9+1 Q&A!

Michael Robert‘s ‘Fool For Your Love‘ is an emotive, blues rock gem, that features Tammy Joe on vocals and was written about the TV show “Chuck“. Powerful!

.Last but not least, Dustin Dale Gaspard‘s ‘Hoping Heaven Got A Kitchen‘ is finely calibrated vintage soul groove with greasy retro blues, heavily influenced by deep southern Louisiana…

‘Blues Brother’: Christos Doukakis
