Q&A with Portland-based keyboardist/musical director Pat McDougall, performed with a long list of artists

Posted on May 25, 2023 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

"I hope my music is some mixture of that; I hope at least some of my songs make people want to move, and that some of them cause listeners to have an authentic emotional response. People tell me they cry when listening to some of the songs, and while I’m not happy to think of anybody crying, I have to say it’s rewarding to know that I successfully tapped into the emotional pathway that causes a person to respond on that level."…


Q&A with Raphael Wressnig, one of best organ players nowadays, funk edge for a unique listening experience

Posted on May 24, 2023 at 6:00pm 0 Comments

"I think the most important thing in life is to be happy. That does not only apply for the life as a musician. I would think this applies to life in general. I think that all “black” music is about to “have a good time”. It doesn’t matter if it is afrobeat, soul, samba, salsa, reggae, funk or blues. Most of them celebrate joy and happiness. I think this is quite different to European music or classical music."…


Q&A with Chicago-based slide guitar virtuoso Joanna Connor, one of the reigning Queens of blue rock guitar

"Most of the greats are gone, headliners and side people. The level of musicianship is weaker, less inventive. I have no thoughts on the future because of this pandemic. We are living in intense times."

Q&A with rising blues star Selwyn Birchwood, taking the tradition of the Blues and making it into something new

Posted on May 24, 2023 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

"Music is the way that I relate to the world. I am admittedly quiet and introverted when I am offstage, but for some reason I have no problem getting on a stage in front of thousands of people and sharing my inner most thoughts. I view the live music experience as a time of shared energy and almost group meditation and therapy."

Q&A with blues musician D.K. Harrell from Ruston, Louisiana - his philosophy and motto is that the Blues is Everything

Posted on May 23, 2023 at 11:30am 0 Comments

"I miss the authentic sound, blues to me now is too rock-ish. I miss when the guitar wasn’t overpowered with gain or distortion and bands had horns and every man shined on stage in a nice suit and uniformed. I also miss the showmanship, the new players like Toronzo Cannon and Eric Gales have that showman ship cause they move and dance a little when they play."

Q&A with popular Canadian guitarist JW-Jones, Billboard Top 10 Blues Artist, well known for his high-energy shows

Posted on May 10, 2023 at 8:30am 0 Comments

"Blues is about the human condition, life experience, and sharing stories. I was in college in a computer course when I realized I had to go full tilt into music. I guess you could say the fear of doing anything other than music is what changed the path of my life the most."

JW - Jones: Everything About The Blues!…

"I believe music, at certain times in our lives, in society, is one of the ONLY ways to reach and connect with people! We know that from the '60s."

Q&A with Irish Blues Rock musician Eamonn McCormack a master of his craft who always performs with heart-felt passion

Posted on May 4, 2023 at 10:30am 0 Comments

"I've learnt to listen more to other people's opinions and always learn from Constructive criticism. Music is endless and a progressive thing and if you want to be great, you can never stop learning, like the legendary painters would be sometimes in the nineties still working on their master piece. I have learnt that the business part of the industry is very important but it's just as important for the artist to keep true to their…
