Buck & Evans - Rock N' 2 Remember - Live in Arizona (2013)

                                                              Buck & Evans
As can sometimes fortuitously happen in the case of your favourite artists, I discovered the band Buck & Evans completely by accident. They were playing the inaugural Ramblin’ Man Fair festival in 2015, buried in an unassuming mid-afternoon slot on the curiously titled ‘Outlaw’ Country Stage. I was expecting a couple of old timers dressed in dungarees behind a pair of battered acoustic guitars. Instead, I got a sensational ‘rock ‘n’ soul’ band; a guitarist whose playing belied his obviously modest years, a vocalist who’d have made Janis look twice and a rhythm section that would still have you moving if your feet had been nailed to the floor.

03. Dreams to Remember 06:00

Gary Myrick's Bluestrash - Gary Myrick's Bluestrash (2016)

                                                               Gary Myrick
GARY MYRICKs BLUESTRASH is Texas-blues in its purest form - dirty, electric, and dangerous.

Chris King Robinson - Tell Me Why Youre Scared (2015)

                                                           Chris King Robinson
Only 20 years old, Britain native Chris King Robinson is starting to prove himself as a new blues guitarist on the rise. His first EP, Tell Me Why You’re Scared, is five tracks of obvious talent, combining a variety of guitar sounds with intimate vocals.

The title track, “Tell Me Why You’re Scared,” gives the essence of a live song that is played to perfection, or even better, than the recording. It is soulful and honest music that vibes through to the soul, a feeling that translates through the rest of the tracks on the EP. Another song, “Trippin’ on Earth” opens with an ode towards classic ’60s and ’70s guitar.

While most of the album consists of raspy and whisper-like vocals, several tracks display a broader, more demanding sound suggesting there may be more behind Robinson’s vocals than he lets on in this EP. However, Robinson is a pronounced blues guitarist above all, and this EP is presumably a small (but, delicious) taste of what he is capable of. A promising release from Chris King Robinson, he shows he is a strong presence in blues music, and it will be exciting to see what else he has up his sleeve and how he will develop his sound from here.


Tracklist:

01.(Why) Don't You Give Me Your Love
02.Tell Me Why You're Scared
03.Woman Who You Talkin' To
04.Burning Eyes
05.Trippin' On Earth

Eddie 9V - ''brooks'' (2019)

                                                                   Eddie 9V
"brooks" is an album recorded all by me. I used vintage recording techniques to get some cool sounds. I went back to where it started for me. Early 50s and 60s blues. I hope you enjoy the album. If your sad, play this album, if you want some whiskey at 3 am play this record. Share this record with your friends and I'd appreciate any extra donations as I do music full time!

Blues Boy Willie - Blues then & Now (2019)

                                                              Blues Boy Willie
Willie McFalls, a native Memphian from Texas, not Tennessee, took the chitlin circuit by surprise in 1990 when the comical blues dialog of "Be-Who?" put his second album on the Billboard charts and his act on the road. Blues Boy Willie came to Ichiban Records courtesy of his boyhood friend from Texas, bluesman-producer Gary B. B. Coleman. Willie's three albums to date all bear the typical Coleman touch -- competent but predictable blues tracks with a small studio band. It has been the spunky spoken repartee between Willie and his wife Miss Lee on the novelty numbers that has earned Willie an unexpected niche on the Southern soul-blues scene.

01. Hungry Harp Blues
02. Sleepwalking Blues
03. Expectin' You To Change

Jesse Davey - Big Blues (2015)

                                                               Jesse Davey
His playing is influenced by the greats such as B.B. King, Lightnin’ Hopkins, and Stevie Ray Vaughn and has developed into a mature, personal style ranging from “blistering pyrotechnics with jazz and classical flavors”. It is clear Davey is a veteran in the blues guitar world bringing you the finest soul searching solos, which run the game of emotions of exquisite melancholy to explosive joy.
Davey as member of the Hoax

In 1991 Davey started The Hoax alongside John Amor and Hugh Coltman. All the members were all young students of the blues and had played together since they were in their teens; songwriting and arrangements were worked out together by all five members and in 1994 their debut album Sound Like This was brought out. The Hoax impresses critics in England who compared the to The Yardbirds, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers and the Rolling Stones.

601 Blues - Hard Edge Blues (2008)

                                                                  601 Blues
Blues is about passion and caring,if you had no passion,or did not care for anything, then there would be no Blues!!Blues can find its way into any form or life style,its not what you feel its how you express it,My Blues is reflections of life,and all the fears we have in todays world,Sometimes we just need to stop and look at ourselves,and that is a scary thing for most of us to do!!
When I write a song,I don't plan on it being any form, of Blues/Rock or anything, I just let the Song unfold and be what it wants at that moment,I will not go back and edit anything once it is recorded,The intent is not to change anything that was caught in the passion of the moment, Like a Photo the best is when the subject is caught at the most ackward moments,so I want to keep that moment as is.
I play all the instruments on all recordings, so far I have worked with Guitars,Bass,violin, Keyboards,piano,sax,Harmonica,drums,congas,I have used other artist at times, but for me its like a sculpter callin in another sculpter to carve out a nose on a statue that he has been workin on!!WHY! Yes My music is different,thats what I want,I don't want to sound like anyone else,On this CD I had a struggle with my self on what to call it, Lost Highway or Move to the Moon!!so I could not decide cuz both are my favs.I started to remove one and start another project around that!!So I left it as is and used my guitar pick guard as the title!! Grab a Glass Of Merlot and sit back reflect and enjoy!!
