Q&A with Blues n' Soul singer/songwriter Big Daddy Wilson, his music is a bridge that brings us together

"Blues is the root, everything else is the fruit. Many music lovers today don't know this. So it would be nice to educate music lovers about the history of this beautiful music called BLUES. It is the foundation that most modern music is built on. It would be a shame to lose the root."

Interview with Canadian energic vocalist Angel Forrest - her music is an incredible canvas of influences

"The music I am exposed to today... I find lacks depth and heart. Like most of what's going in in the world... I fear the loss of human connection. Hopefully the Blues will take over for the empty music we are feed on commercial radio. People are hungry to feel and be moved."

Q&A with Greece-based Daddy’s Work Blues Band, an electric blues gumbo which flirts with all kinds of neighboring styles.

"The Blues originated from the Black Community and described Black People’s hard times mainly due to racial discrimination. As a result, the Blues had – by default – a big impact to human rights as it motivated people, societies and authorities to adapt deterrent legislation. As a music idiom, the Blues had a vibe strong enough to inspire and be the base for modern music which is massively accepted and dominates audiences for 60 – 70 years now. Thus, the…

Q&A with Greece-based freelance writer Konstantinos Roumeliotis, creator an online magazine and music lover

"Art and Culture are organically related with the progress of a certain society or a people. It’s not irrelevant that cultural progress goes hand in hand with social progress. When dealing with the culture of peoples, you are actually dealing with a peoples’ history."

Guitarist Leon Rubenhold talks about his career, Outlaw Blues Band and the 60s Psychedelic Blues/Rock era

"Music is such a powerful language which transcends all communication barriers. If used correctly it can influence vast amounts of people by delivering the message you want. You have to be careful in what you imply because the result might not be what you intended. Many have been irresponsible in their choice of message, and many have been spot on. I personally want my music to uplift and or impart the truth as it is and help raise the consciousness of the…

Q&A with Barcelona-based Wax & Boogie, one of the best bands of the blues, rhythm and blues and boogie-woogie scene

"The music in the past was soulful, it was made from the heart. Nowadays, the focus is on commercial music and economic profit. I fear that technology will replace the great artists of the past, people who only played an instrument for fun and achieved amazing things. I worry that there will never be a new Louis Armstrong or Meade Lux Lewis again."

Q&A with Wayne Baker Brooks, one of today’s top bluesmen, playing that honors his rich blues heritage

"For me, Blues music is my therapy. It keeps me sane in this sometime-y crazy world. The word BLUES is associated with being blue, depressed, sad, or not happy. Blues music is the total opposite. The music in blues makes you wanna dance, party, or sometimes makes you wanna get closer to your partner, make you laugh, make you cry from emotional songs, or cry out of pure joy. I would love it if blues affect all people in this way."…

Q&A with Canadian blues rock duo The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer, hearts expressed in sound waves

"Music is life!! it’s entertainment sure, it’s always religion, meditation, lifeblood. Songs are living breathing entities, artists that are lucky enough and have their antennae out and collect songs get to share them to the world to do with them as they feel freely to do. It can power movements, replace tense conversations, bring people together from opposite socio and political backgrounds to dance it out anonymously in clubs and…

Q&A with veteran UK bass guitarist, Steve Bingham - Rock n Roll has played a huge part in his life and career

"What I miss most from the music of the past is the sound of actual live musicians playing together without the aid of modern technology. You can always tell when music has been generated from a computer and no matter how much you try it's impossible to replicate the sound of great musicians."

Q&A with Canadian Waterstreet Blues Band (Rob Deyman & Paul Sapounzi) - original modern blues with a rockin’ party groove

"The best music should reflect the culture as well as move it forward in a positive direction. I want the act of sharing our music to "move" people physically and emotionally.
