Q&A with St. Louis guitarist Tony Campanella - raw talent and experience gained the respect of fellow artists

"I feel that Blues can provide us all a means to transcend all of these boundaries. As musicians, we also have the responsibility to honor the history and roots of the music that we hold dear. Through that, we all can have a better understanding, acceptance, and appreciation of our racial and cultural differences. Hopefully that will lead to an elimination of our divisiveness and unite us."

Q&A with Italian Hammond B-3 player Luca Kiella Chiellini - high energy describes the approach to his music

"The racial discrimination and socio-cultural differences go away with the music, and it’s the best part of it in my opinion.

Q&A with Tiffany Pollack, born and raised in New Orleans, where she began singing as soon as she could talk

"Music is such a universal form of expression. People have used music to express heavy emotion for ages. Think about the war cries of ancient tribes to create a sense of being connected with one another so they could operate as one. Music can unite us. In church people sing together to worship as one. Human beings need to feel connected to one another. When people come together in song it is powerful."…

Writer, poet, and publisher, Tosh Berman talks about the Beats, music, and his new book “Tosh: Growing Up in Wallace Berman's World”

"The arts, not just music, has an impact on so much from a better outlook on life, to better cognitive skills to building up the local economy.

Q&A with Dan Baird, best known as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist from the chart-topping 1980s rock band The Georgia Satellites

"That honesty, not chasing a trend. “We do what we do” attitude. I’d hope a simple and honest music raises its head up again. Greta Van Fleet, Rival Sons, are young, taking what they like from older music, putting their take on it and running. Kids are listening to that again. 5% will actually go back and listen to Howlin Wolf and be astounded."

L.A. based keyboardist Ed Roth talks about the spirit of Blues, freedom of Jazz and his lifetime journey in music
