"I think blues music is easy to understand and a great foundation to tell a story. It truly is a global musical language that everyone can be part of. And I think it’s evolving into something new. There’s a lot of pop music with lots of blues in it."

Q&A with Austrian guitarist and singer Jörg Danielsen, influences reach back to the electric blues of the 1960s & 70s

Posted on January 26, 2023 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

"It’s timeless music with a lot of facets. It’s pure, emotional and transports a lot of energy. It can hit you in many ways. No matter if you experience a concert while sitting, or if you dance and move to the groove. Blues connects people. It’s the only music I know where musicians even don’t need to speak the same language. If they understand the language of the blues, it’s enough to have a great time!"…

"Music is a universal language that helps keep people together in all types of culture. It can be healing, and it can touch people in many different ways. It is important for me that when people hear my music, they feel it in their heart and it brings out an emotional response in them."

Q&A with Memphis-based Soul Blues harmonica ace Tony Holiday - Hill county with a step of Memphis lightning

Posted on January 24, 2023 at 10:30am 0 Comments

"Music has always affected the way people live their life, example - in the mining camp days, you would go to the saloon after work, and the piano player would be relating all the news from the last mining camp, it used to be the heart of information as they were the only ones traveling from town to town to spread that information. As far as my music goes, I’d like to bring people together and make them feel and think about things they love and things…


Q&A with Nashville-based Canadian musician Steve Dawson, the music flows out of him is so natural and authentic

Posted on January 24, 2023 at 10:00am 0 Comments

"The music has put me in places and with people that have greatly impacted me, my life and my career. The music has taught me to listen and think and be creative, but it’s more the places and people that I’ve worked and travelled with because of the music that have had the biggest impact on how I see the world."

Posted on January 24, 2023 at 9:00am 0 Comments

"If your music is not the spiritual expression of what you are then what IS it? It is our subconscious, unconscious, ancestral, ego, god, coping mechanism, creation, undoing. Celebration, communication, catharsis, connection and rebellion all in the same beautiful, gritty, bluesy breath. It is the song of every road travelled and every path not taken. It is a quivering bow and arrow displaying both potential and kinetic energy. It is a lotus flower born…


Q&A with German musician Bad Temper Joe, one of Europe's finest blues and roots artists, songwriters and guitarists

Posted on January 23, 2023 at 4:00pm 0 Comments

"Blues is a very direct and raw music. Something that kicks you in the guts. It shoots you right in the heart. It makes you lose your mind. But it still makes you feel good and lets you know you're not alone. We all have the blues. It's only human. When the groove hits you, it makes you forget your troubles, takes you to another world. That's blues to me, and maybe that's why people still like…
