“Simple music is the hardest music to play and blues is simple music”. – Albert Collins
Let’s kick off this Blues Boom number with British artist BeeMC and his blues rock banger ‘Cash Is King‘ with the amplifiers on red, with an old-school approach, but also sounding utterly fresh, and some killer lyrics about capitalism. Superb!
… Sayed Sabrina‘s ‘The Grande Illusion‘ the final track from her recent album ‘Thou Art That‘, is a genuine amagalm of blues, jazz, rock, funk and soul with a stunning, powerhouse vocal performance.
KALO hail from USA and their track and latest video for ‘No Shame‘. is a pure blues rock n’ roll treat, unleashing some divine riffs, and featuring a more than charismatic vocalist (Bat-Or Kalo also on guitars!). Rocking in no shame for sure!
Jaro is a young and promising guitar player and song writer based in the Hague, Netherlands, and is heavily influenced by the legendary band Santana, judging from his melodious, instrumental, blues gem ‘Live by the guitar‘. This is the opening track of his 2019’s eponymous album ‘Live by the guitar‘.
Next up we meet with French artist Vita Schmidt and her blues-y, jazz-pop blend ‘Know Someone‘; Smooth vocal performnace and a killer acoustic bass result in an “unable-to-resist” ‘bijou’!
Atlanta husband and wife duo The Dround Hounds ‘wonder’ ‘Who’s the Devil Anyway?‘, an almost haunting blues folk song with imposing atmosphere ideal for long desert drives with “destination unknown”. Addictive!
Dirty Snowman Society‘s ‘Eleven Days Gone‘ is a heavy rock & roll groove with hints of gospel, and by all means their love for The Rolling Stones cannot be hidden. Turn this up loud!
Desert blues for the end? Yup, Bill Filipiak will take care of this with his ‘Punch My Ticket‘, the opener from his latest album ‘Brand New Me‘; Effective acoustic blues with an americana heart!
