"Music has the ability to connect people, to change moods, and elicit all sorts of emotions. I’ve never wanted to be famous, or win awards, or anything like that. For me, I’ve only ever wanted to express myself through my music, and to connect and inspire people in the same way that my heroes and influences connected with and inspired me with their music. That’s all I can hope for: that my music reaches people and makes them feel."…

"The Blues have saturated our culture and become very mainstream, being played in commercials and such. I wouldn’t go so far as to say contemporary blues is watered down from the blues of say the 50’s and 60’s during the civil rights movement. But I think it’s more in the background as far as representing the black voice in our society."

Q&A with blues guitarist Charles Burton, San Diego's Blues Ambassador to the world plays with fire and passion

"The music business has changed a lot in my lifetime - but I think it’s important to remember that it’s been changing the whole time - like last century, the century before that, and probably much further back than that.  What I really hope for the future is that live music can continue and continue to be popular. Because a sort of magic can happen when performers interact with a live audience and with each other. There’s nothing else like…

I see women coming together, networking and encouraging one another as we continue to level up in Blues, Soul and Jazz. I belong to a network of women who gather together since Covid and have been a tremendous support system and networking community. Women are "Comin for…

"It is a touching of the soul, breaking barriers and communicating the special and important things that words can often not express. I would like to think that I can remind them of their spirituality and the innate qualities of sensitivity that modern life and smart phones/screens can distract us from."
