Q&A with Canadian musician Sue Decker - early blues and folk with the songwriting sensibility of outlaw country

"I am always drawn to the places where music connects people who might seem different from each other or divided.

Interview with Canadian energic vocalist Angel Forrest - her music is an incredible canvas of influences

"The music I am exposed to today...I find lacks depth and heart. Like most of what's going in in the world...I fear the loss of human connection. Hopefully the Blues will take over for the empty music we are feed on commercial radio. People are hungry to feel and be moved."

Q&A with Crescent City-based Big Mike Perez - Chicago rhythm n' blues with soul, funk and some rooted reggae

"Well I think we all know that blues was created in the south by African Americans. Using a lot of their influences and speaking of their experiences. It comes from a lot of emotions. Truth be told I stay away from politics so I really don’t know. As far as racial implications, blues nowadays is loved by every color and every ethnicity at least in my experience. Like I said before, it is a healer."…

Q&A with Geoff Muldaur, one of the great voices and musical forces to emerge from the folk, blues and folk-rock scenes

“The impact has been significant of course.  Integrated bands helped lead the way… Butterfield made a huge contribution in 1965 when he showed up with and integrated band from Chicago.  Folk musicians in urban areas had an easy time crossing racial lines.  Once one sees this working (an audience), they think differently about their neighbors.”

Q&A with UK guitarist Chantel McGregor - the Blues came calling first, but rock was always waiting around the corner

"I don’t think there’s anything necessarily missing in music at the moment that was there in the past, I think as a listener, there’s so much amazing music out there, you maybe have to look a bit harder for it nowadays than years ago, but the music is out there."

Chantel McGregor:
