Q&A with veteran British blues musician Dave Thomas - has toured, lived and recorded all over the world

Posted on December 9, 2023 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

"Soul, for me, is by far the most important thing. As Buddy Guy said recently "the blues don't lie". The best blues music tells the truth straight from the heart. You can hear the depth of a man's soul through his voice."

Dave Thomas: Road To The Blues

A veteran of the British blues bloom in the 1960’s Thomas has toured, lived and recorded all…


Q&A with Aussie harp blaster/singer Phil Coyne, echoing the ghosts of ‘50s Chicago blues, with new attitude

Posted on December 9, 2023 at 11:00am 0 Comments

"I think blues just one of those things where if I didn’t have it, I would feel there was something missing. Somehow like a hole in the spirit somewhere, and I'd be a lot sadder. Blues is such a part of me, and has been for such a long time and it’s given me so many experiences, so many friends, I'd be a shell of myself."…


Q&A with Texas based, Canadian bred musician Sue Foley, considered among the very top tier of blues stars

Posted on December 5, 2023 at 8:30am 0 Comments

"I think in general young people are looking for something to feed their spirit, with all the technology that we lean on, I think more, and more people are just looking for something real to hold onto. What could be better than the blues? So, it's actually a good time for BLUES and I'm very optimistic that it will. It will keep growing and new audience."

Q&A with British drummer Dylan Howe, best known for leading his jazz groups and many recording credits as a sideman

Posted on December 4, 2023 at 9:00am 0 Comments

"I miss the great grooves, chord changes, smart heartfelt lyrics and feeling of what happened in the 50-70’s - especially in black America. I’m not sure if music will really be that important again. Also, the middle 8’s and the virtuosos - where have they gone? (!)"

Born in London in 1969,…


Q&A with Multi-Grammy winner Paul Avgerinos - new Christmas album full of ambient new age holiday cheer

Posted on December 2, 2023 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

"The melodies are so perfectly crafted and catchy that you just can't help but hum and sing along. And Christmas is such a fun time of the year with decorations, parties and gifts. Even a grouchy old Scrooge will give in and crack a smile eventually."

Paul Avgerinos: Om, Serene Shanti Noel!

Q&A with New York Blues Hall of Famer Vito Liuzzi, a veteran musician/producer, who spans all forms of music

Posted on December 1, 2023 at 11:30am 0 Comments

"The Blues is all about the human experience. Blues is really the foundation of all music past and present. It gets to the heart and soul. Tells stories of joy and pain, loss and recovery, enlightenment, frustration, cheating, stealing, unfaithfulness."

Vito Liuzzi: Music with Power & Emotions

Q&A with soulful singer; guitarist; and songwriter Kevin Burt, Iowa-based musician pays tribute to the late great Bill Withers

Posted on December 1, 2023 at 11:00am 0 Comments

" Bill Withers' songs give timeless, emotional, insightful commentary on being. Love, loss, family, community, friendship, politics, just being. That never goes out of style.  He has given the world anthems for celebration, heartbreak, unity, life. For sure he has for me."

Kevin Burt: Tribute to…


Q&A with “The Master Chef” Dan Baird, Georgia Satellites' frontman talks about his new project The Chefs

Posted on December 1, 2023 at 12:00am 0 Comments

"The traditional rock and roll band already has transitioned to the 50’s jazz combo. Small devoted audiences. Not much of a chance to break through, although it does happen. But the world has moved along. You can cry and wail, but the world has moved along. R&R has joined jazz, swing, dixieland, blues, REAL country in being mostly forgotten by the masses. Musicians will go back and mine those veins over and over, but as far as the general public, all…


Q&A with legendary artist Barry “The Fish” Melton, an iconic member of San Francisco’s psychedelic music scene

Posted on November 28, 2023 at 11:00am 0 Comments

"I believe - particularly in the 60's - the music of my generation had a significant socio-cultural impact because music was a primary mode of communication for youth and the counterculture back then. Today, of course, there are many different modes of communication - not only for young people, but people of all different ages, backgrounds and political views. Here, in the San Francisco Bay Area, the counterculture was held together by a handful of…


Q&A with multitalanted Rafe Klein of The Name Droppers, veteran rock ‘n’ rollers with the blues in their hearts

Posted on November 27, 2023 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

"A lot of songs can be inspired by social or current events. I want music to be something that takes the listener back to a familiar place or person, when they hear that song or music again."

Rafe Klein: Rock n' Blue(s) Diamonds

Veteran rock ‘n’ rollers with the blues in their hearts, The Name Droppers, have toured the world backing blues rock…
