"Some of the most important lessons I have learned are: Never quit because it's hard, you can never stop learning, this is a very brutal business, don't be afraid of NO's, you're going to hear plenty of them, nothing good comes without busting your tail, not all is always as it appears. There are so many lessons from music and life in general that are very important."

Kurt Allen: Blues Rock &…

"Sometimes it feels like a good performance can really help people through their week. It gives them a shot of juice and keeps a positive attitude going in their lives at least for a little while. The healing power of the blues and music in general can’t be underestimated. Musicians have responsibilities in this regard."

Q&A with legendary bassist Leo Lyons, the British musician and producer is Ten Υears Αhead of his time

"I’m very lucky to have had career in music for over five decades. Perhaps fans around my own age share collective experiences. It’s heartening to find that the music I play continues to resonate with both long-time fans and is passed on to newer generations."

Q&A with singer/guitarist Natalie Martel, a long history of involvement in the San Francisco Bay area music scene

Posted on September 26, 2023 at 11:30pm 0 Comments

"San Francisco is a mecca for avant-garde and eclectic artists; as the city has historically had a migration of people coming from areas of the country where they were suppressed economically, artistically and spiritually!"

Q&A with talented Croatian musician Odin S “The Bluesboy”, the youngest blues star keeps the flame burning

Posted on September 26, 2023 at 9:00am 0 Comments

"Blues is not necessarily music only, it can be any kind of expression, and since it is the root of today’s music, it touches the soul and heart of a person. Kids nowadays are less connected with the older generations and their way of life, and it is unlikely for them to discover the blues on their own."

Q&A with German-based musician/tour manager Bernie Zylka of The Chain Gang, old style Blues Rock and Rock 'n Roll

"Meeting up with people all over the world shows, that as soon as come to a place as a musician, you're not a stranger anymore. You're welcomed, you become part of a community for one night and sometimes you find friends for the rest of life. Music unites people and makes people happy."

Bernie Zylka:

Q&A with M.A. Littler, a German/South African writer and filmmaker has written various books of poetry, films and many short films

"Don't overthink. Don't try to imagine what the viewer, listener, or reader understands. Keep it pure. Don't dismiss the irrational. If you understand your own work entirely it is probably not very good - and always woo the muse of the odd!"

Q&A with unique multi-media artist Francis Dunnery, his work combines music, astrology, literature, and philosophy

"We live in a synthetic world. It will get worse before it gets better. But in about 20 years we will have exhausted ourselves with our lack of authenticity and begin to return to nature. And that’s when I think a whole new generation of teenagers will be looking for authentic music. The blues is humble, its natural and it will always be there."

Francis Dunnery: Tombstone…


Q&A with Spain-based Rev. Richard John, foot tapping blues which appeals to audiences both young and old

Posted on September 17, 2023 at 9:30am 0 Comments

"Most people react to the energy of music and blues music is a very direct form of that energy. One of the most beautiful aspects of blues music is its ability to cross between the cultural perspective."

The Reverend´s music is foot tapping blues which appeals to audiences both young and old. The Reverend's…


Q&A with electrifying and versatile musician Joyann Parker, heaping helping of blues across the roots spectrum

Posted on September 14, 2023 at 7:00pm 0 Comments

"Roots music is everywhere, even if it's not defined as such. The rise of Americana music tells me that it's only gaining in popularity. American country music has gone so pop that people have decided to gravitate toward the more authentic Americana genre."
