Q&A with Texas-based versatile singer/actor Laura Tate - inspires with her natural compassion and dedication

"The most important lessons I have learned in my music path is perservance. Some believe you get an agent and everything will fall into place. Wrong.

It’s not an easy path as many do not understand the hard work that it takes."

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

"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.

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

"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:…

"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."…
