Q&A with fine artist and illustrator Marc Burckhardt, focuses on historical symbolism with contemporary themes.

"I certainly agree with Coltrane: I define my life experience best through my painting, and I feel it's a gift I have an obligation to. As for the meaning of life, I think we all spend ours' considering that question, and I doubt anyone has come up with a wholly satisfying answer. But making art is the closest I've come to fulfilling what I think I'm here to do."

Q&A with "The Queen of Texas Blues" Angela Strehli, her voice has coursed through the genre akin to blood through a heart

Posted on November 26, 2022 at 9:30pm 0 Comments

"I think it is too hard for a human to understand who they are. Maybe somebody outside of them can look at you and maybe they understand who you are. But I think it’s very hard for us to have that kind of perspective ourselves. So, he had it right because that would be the way that you can express it, for example in my case blues music does reveal who I am, even to me."

Angela Strehli: The…


Q&A with The International Crossroads Project, a Blues-Rock-Funk band made of young musicians coming from France and the USA

Posted on November 22, 2022 at 10:30am 0 Comments

"Think of all the music you listen to nowadays, you wouldn’t have it without the blues. Blues is the foundation of music. Those people needed an outlet to let out the extreme emotion they were feeling and the result was the Blues. It’s so important in history and touches the soul. It’ll fall thin but it’ll never truly die."

Q&A with Southern Gothic Blues musician Jhett Black, one-man band with soulful gospel roots and balladry

Posted on November 19, 2022 at 11:30pm 0 Comments

"What it always has been. I think some music today has the same power it always has. It allows people to let go, to hold on, to grieve and celebrate, to find God, to get laid, to get straight, to get high, to connect people that would otherwise have nothing in common."

Jhett Black: Grit, Energy & Heart

Teacher and writer Charles Shuttleworth talks about Jack Kerouac, Beat movement and Buddhism teachings

Posted on November 15, 2022 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

"In regard to my views of the world, I think they were already formed when I discovered Kerouac and the Beats. By the time I'd graduated from high school in 1976, I'd already been sufficiently radicalized by then to feel myself firmly aligned politically with the counterculture. Then, during college, the writings of Kerouac struck me right away – On the Road, The Dharma Bums, and The Subterraneans were my starting points – as being on my wavelength. I…


Q&A with Espen Fjelle, musician and teacher at University of South-Eastern Norway, organizes a blues program

Posted on November 10, 2022 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

"I like music to be open and to have room for improvisation, a quality that blues and jazz has always had. Much of today’s music have a more produced and studio software based sound and arrangements where the instrumental parts are in the background or more or less absent. I hope, and work for, that young people will start playing in bands again like we did."

Q&A with Kansas-based musician Donnie Miller, playing the blues the last 25 years lends its power to his guitar and vocals

"I miss nothing from the past. I still listen to the music I love. But I think there are still lots of great new artists. You just have to look harder now because there are so many of us. And really nothing changes. Music is just a big cycle. It's timeless."

Q&A with British singer/songwriter Claire Hamill, celebrating over 50 years in the music industry with a new album

Posted on November 10, 2022 at 11:00am 0 Comments

"The thing I miss most about the music from the past is that in those days every singer seemed to have their own sound and voice. Now it seems like people chase a sound that someone else has made popular. I’m also sad that the music being made in the 70’s was, until the Punk era, lyrically full of hope and love. It was essentially uplifting."

Q&A with bluesman Freddie Dixon, son of Willie Dixon, co-founder of the legendary band, Sons of the Blues

Posted on November 5, 2022 at 7:00pm 0 Comments

"The impact of Blues on the socio-culture implications is expression. The Blues teaches society that it’s okay to hold nothing back. If you’re unhappy, sing. If you’re happy, sing. Let it out. I want Blues to affect people by making them curious. Where did it come from? Why?"

Q&A with Boston-based Brooks Young, rock n' roll edge and blues feel, going for a powerful sonic blend

Posted on November 3, 2022 at 10:30am 0 Comments

"The most important lesson I've learned is to simply be respectful, humble, and kind, and never give up on your dreams! On the road, I never hear how nice a person is. It's always how terrible someone was to work with, and I would rather be known for treating everyone the way I would like to be treated."

Brooks Young: Supply Chain Blues
