Q&A with Arizona-based Black Cat Bones (Charles Pitts and Jeff Daniels), a five-piece Rockin' Blues band

Posted on June 18, 2024 at 11:00am 0 Comments

"Blues transcends any and all racial inequality, it pulls you in to a place where you can identify with the writer and what they might have been going through. Those struggles that we identify with fit any class or race of people. Which is one reason that Blues will never die."

Q&A with authentic, virtuoso musician Vince Lee, roots music with deepest love to early electric and country blues

Posted on June 15, 2024 at 9:00am 0 Comments

"I have always been drawn to vintage music. Mostly from the 20s to the 50s so I am not well educated on anything much after that. If I get into a modern act, it’s probably because they have a vintage style or sound. I don’t worry too much about the future of this kind of music."

Q&A with singer/songwriter/musician Denise La Grassa - blending blues, roots and Americana, rock and souls

Posted on June 14, 2024 at 11:30pm 0 Comments

"Most definitely. People need a release from our war-torn world and division in America. I think the blues can help us release the anxiety and sadness around all the hard times we’re going through in this country and world. It’s a cathartic expression both in the song itself, and the movement that comes from hearing the music."

Denise La Grassa: Sundown Rising…


Q&A with veteran musician, Sam Joyner - internationally known for his Blues, R&B, Jazz, and Reggae Styling

Posted on June 12, 2024 at 10:30am 0 Comments

"Blues originated in the African American communities of the Deep South, serving as a powerful expression of enduring hardships and fighting for equal rights. Later, It crossed racial barriers, influencing various music genres and artists. More so today but there have been many interracial families, black people who looked white as well as integrated communities."

Sam Joyner: A Distinct Musical…


Q&A with Italian singer/songwriter Daniele Perrino, burns our souls with different blues, nu soul and noir jazz flavors

Posted on June 12, 2024 at 10:00am 0 Comments

"Music has always brought along the influences of all people and their own deepest roots. It’s part of their identity. I like to think of music as a simple well-being for the listener. Or even as a sound rebellion. Without burdening it with roles and rules that differs from its own nature."

Daniele Perrino: Soot Songs of Freedom



Q&A with multi instrumentalist, singer/songwriter Lara Price, powerhouse female force in the soul blues scene

Posted on June 6, 2024 at 7:00pm 0 Comments

"Music is a life long journey of discovery. It’s the one thing that I will never stop being curious about. Music is a place for me to fall in love over and over again. I guess that makes me a bit of a junkie. I just want to play live music for as long as this life will allow."

Lara Price: Soul Blues American Dream…


Q&A with British keyboard player George Glover of Climax Blues Band - flown the flag with tremendous passion and style

Posted on June 6, 2024 at 10:30am 0 Comments

"Listening to different music whilst travelling around the world is an education in it self and even if you don't speak the language you can communicate with music. Perhaps the politicians of the world should do the same then maybe there might be less problems in the world."

George Glover:

Keeping the Keys of Climax Blues…


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

Posted on June 1, 2024 at 4:00pm 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' Blues Starshine

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


Q&A with Welsh virtuoso fingerstyle guitarist John James, plays through jazz, folk and blues forms with equal ease

Posted on May 30, 2024 at 8:00pm 0 Comments

"All instruments require a technique, the complexity or mastery of which is decided by the form of music played. The music I played on the acoustic guitar required a very comprehensive technique. Most jazz and classical guitar music can be equally demanding. In performance, though, it should appear effortless."

John James: Dewin Cymru…
