Q&A with Blues & Rock guitarist Saverio Maccne, one-of-a-kind strong rooty sound, that combines raw liberty and dynamic power

"I believe that for people who love Blues Rock, life has a more pleasant and real flavor. Since this particular genre is created by analog instruments like guitars, drums, harmonicas, keyboards, etc, therefore it remains something real and authentic. I always want people to have a beautiful moment during and after my show so that they can leave the daily routine for a moment to feed on music and really enjoy themselves."…

"The blues means everything to me. I have grown up loving this music and making friends with some of the greatest of blues musicians. Most of life’s lessons have been learned in the context of this music. The greatest life lesson I have learned is to follow your heart and to believe in yourself."

"I guess that I regret seeing blues get removed from the regional life experiences that created it. I fear that it is and will continue to be more homogenized."

Steve Howell: Jazz Vehicle, Blues Wheels

When Steve Howell first heard Mississippi John Hurt's happy style of fingerpicking country blues in 1965 at the age of thirteen, he…

"I’ve learned the hard way not to self-righteously fight against every small thing I don’t like. More “go with the flow” if I can. And sometimes it’s better to be kind than to be honest. I try to choose my battles more now than I did 30 years ago."

Q&A with Brandon Hudspeth of Levee Town, Kansas City-based new blues with roots that run wide and deep

"I believe that kindness and respect are so important no matter what field you are in. The music business is cutthroat for sure and I've seen it turn very kind, loving folks into bitter and angry people. On the flip side of that there is so much joy to be able to do what I love for a living and to hopefully be able make people forget their problems for at least just a moment. I've learned to remind myself of that when I get frustrated with the…

Q&A with bluesman Freddie Dixon, son of Willie Dixon, co-founder of the legendary band, Sons of the Blues

"The impact of Blues on the socio-culture implications is expression. The Blues teaches society that it’s okay to hold nothing back. If you’re unhappy, sing. If you’re happy, sing. Let it out. I want Blues to affect people by making them curious. Where did it come from? Why?"

Freddie Dixon: My Business is Blues

Q&A with multitalented musician/singer Lauren Glick soulful style and heartfelt lyrics you won’t want to miss out

"I always strive for peace and love and all living as one. Also, empowerment. I try to write music that has the ability to take you out of the funk (the bad kind of funk!) and regain your power. One of the songs I released last year is called "Free," it's about women’s freedom, in a sense. It's the freedom from being done raising their kids, and now it's their time to shine and maybe take their journey!!"…

Q&A with Toronto-based Chris Antonik, a blues-rock guitarist, singer/song writer, who pays deep respect to blues tradition

Posted on June 14, 2022 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

​"I think this music is timeless, and people will always love it, however, I think the reason blues has been able to generate renewed interest in recent years, is because newer artists are mixing blues with other genres, like rock, soul, pop, even hip hop."

Chris Antonik: Morningstar Blues

"Blues Music is all around us and has been for a very long time. Blues has been and still is the foundation for many art forms, not just music. Whether it be: Music, Film, Literature, Social Media, Story Telling, etc... People expressing their views and experiences with blues is a powerful way to reach an audience."

"I find that in my case, the key to a life well lived is knowing what brings me joy and allowing that for myself. It's living according to what I KNOW my purpose is. It's loving out loud. It's understanding that every breath I take is a blessing… every moment, a gift. The ultimate key to a “life well lived" is to be grateful for it ALL!"
