Q&A with harmonica virtuoso Martin Lang, captures the wailing urgency that makes Chicago blues harp famous worldwide

Posted on April 10, 2021 at 10:30am 0 Comments

"Well, I hope music can help people form relationships with those others that are as different from them as I am from someone like Taildragger; in my relationship with him, the subject of race is literally a  joke. We know each other well enough to know that we are truly more alike than different, because of the music."

Martin Lang: Old Good Days of Blues Harp…


Q&A with storyteller Bob Bradshaw, from folk, Americana and blues into one cohesive package of spell-binding music

Posted on April 8, 2021 at 11:00am 0 Comments

"I don’t miss anything from the music of the past - I believe that all music exists in the present. Folk, Roots and Blues music should evolve to reflect the times we live in, right?"

Bob Bradshaw: The Ghost Light Tales

Singer/songwriter Bob Bradshaw will be released his new CD,…


Q&A with Endrick Tremblay - hailing from Montreal, Endrick and the Sandwiches play frenetic blues rock

Posted on April 8, 2021 at 10:30am 0 Comments

"I think that the impact of blues rock is year after year less powerful, because it’s been mainly a man type of music. It even became a white man type of music through the years. I think that society has a craving for new types of models and if the blues rock genre isn’t able to reinvent itself, people will look someplace else."

Endrick & The Sandwiches:…


Q&A with NYC-based Russell Alexander, plays modern blues, which can be high energy, slow and soulful boogie

"Your word is your bond. If you promise to do a gig, either as a sideman or a leader or a full band, you NEVER cancel unless you're physically incapacitated."

Russell Alexander: The 21st Century Blues

New album “Not My Circus, Not My Monkey” (2021), by the New York based Hitman Blues Band (Russell Alexander), contains…


Q&A with Midwest-based band of The Hungry Williams, play music that puts a smile on your face and aspring in your step.

Posted on April 5, 2021 at 9:00am 0 Comments

"I miss the ubiquity of live music. Seven nights a week there were little combos in bars, concert bands in the park, community marching bands, jazz groups at weddings and parties. Most of the music we consume now is recorded, so I worry the traditions of playing live will be forgotten or lost. I remain hopeful that humanity’s need for music will keep it all alive, though perhaps much different than before."…


Q&A with Long Island singer/songwriter Chris St. John - draws from multiple genres, utilizing an array of instruments

"I think the impact of music on the world is understated, undeniable, and incalculable. All peoples find joy from making and listening to music. I want my music to make people happy and deeply think."

Chris St. John: The Soundtrack of Dreams

Over the last quarter century, Long Island singer/songwriter Chris St. John has truly led a diverse and…


Q&A with Kansas City-based John Knell, photographer, collage artist, illustrator and graphic designer

"I think all the arts affect culture and humanity in many important ways. Whether it is communicating a political position, pointing out a societal ill, providing hope, building community, telling a story or just showcasing beauty. The arts are vital to not only a culture but to humanity as well."

John Knell: Goin' to Kansas…


Q&A with premier rock drummer Carmine Appice, astonishing live performances and highly sought-after session musician

Posted on March 31, 2021 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

"Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa, and Joe Morello, they were probably my major idols. Just to keep things going like we do in a band. It is harder for drummers to make things work in this business as you are always in the back so you have to constantly keep moving to get the train moving… Drummers are many times those most organized in the band!"

Carmine Appice:…


Q&A with Bay Area blues singer supreme, Tia Carroll - from the heart with passion, emotion, and warmth

Posted on March 31, 2021 at 10:30am 0 Comments

"The blues are under represented by the bloodline they came from and that makes the blues misunderstood and not viewed as a powerful tool to promote change. We have work to do to if we want to be seen as movers and shakers in the music industry. Movers and shakers have resources to get things done outside of the music industry."

Tia Carroll: You Gotta Have It!…


New York-based musician and producer Jim Koeppel talks about the legacy of the late blues Cash McCall

Posted on March 26, 2021 at 4:00pm 0 Comments

"Without a doubt, Cash McCall gave me the most important push I had, and needed, in my career. He told me ”don’t ever quit!” He put me in his band and co-produced my record. His vision was bigger than mine for this latest project, and I opened myself up to him vision, it gave me the allowance I needed to expand."

Jim Koeppel: Cash McCall Had The Blues…
