Q&A with harmonica master and veteran sideman Michael Rubin, his music too have grease and imperfections

Posted on August 7, 2022 at 10:30am 0 Comments

"My hopes is that a blues musician will be heroic as a player and a person and the money guys will back him all the way. Blues has resurgences. We just need a hero. My fear is that I won’t be able to pay my mortgage this month."

Michael Rubin was conceived in Memphis in 1969. He went to Woodstock in the womb,…


Q&A with singer/songwriter Patty Tuite, Connecticut-based musician embraces the genre of blues, rock and beyond

Posted on July 31, 2022 at 10:00am 0 Comments

"The Blues have saturated our culture and become very mainstream, being played in commercials and such. I wouldn’t go so far as to say contemporary blues is watered down from the blues of say the 50’s and 60’s during the civil rights movement. But I think it’s more in the background as far as representing the black voice in our society."

Q&A with Lazy Mike & Carson Mallon of South Island Rhythm Kings, a mainstay of the Vancouver Island blues scene

Posted on July 25, 2022 at 8:30pm 0 Comments

"The thing I like about the music of the past, and especially the blues, is the honesty of the music. There was not days upon months of mixing, and overdubbing, and digital trickery. Four or five guys, or however many, would all go into a room big enough to facilitate the numbers, and set up and play, and the music was mixed and recorded on the spot “live off the floor”."

Q&A with talented musician B. Christopher, Pennsylvania-based renowned television composer plays the Blues

Posted on July 25, 2022 at 11:00am 0 Comments

"I honestly don’t listen to much new music. Most of the music I listen to is timeless. Maybe a young person wouldn’t feel that way when they hear an old Elmore James or Snooky Pryor album, but I sure do. I don’t have any fears in terms of music. My hope is that people continue to make great blues music."

Q&A with singer/songwriter/cornetist Al Basile, eight-time Blues Music Award-nominated will be released his new CD, Through with Cool

Posted on July 20, 2022 at 10:30am 0 Comments

"The music industry is squeezing the last drops out of its old business model. It operates on a profit motive and doesn't feel obligated to promote music as music; it's content to promote it in the same way it promotes laundry detergent. It won't adapt until it sees that a grassroots movement coming from a music-starved audience can be profitable."

Al Basile: Through…


Q&A with multi-talented artist, Janice Harrington, renowned singer of Blues, Jazz and Gospel, producer and actress

Posted on July 20, 2022 at 9:30am 0 Comments

"In this day and age everyone can relate to the Blues just take a look at the unrest all over the world if that isn't the Blues, I don't know what is. Gospel on the other hand is healing the Spirit. Every morning I wake up giving thanks to God for a new day. Jazz blows all you cares away. "But it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing"."

Q&A with Croatian musician Miroslav (Miro) Dimic, one of the most important cells of European music scene

Posted on July 19, 2022 at 10:00pm 0 Comments

"Without music there is no love, without love there is no world. Music is the foundation of survival, music is the foundation of youth development, without it as I said there is no progress and survival. Every dollar invested in music returns tenfold, not only as a material value, but as a cultural, sociological, philosophical one, and in the end we spread only positive energy and emotions through music."…


Q&A with guitarist/singer Brad “Guitar” Wilson, has a soulful contemporary sound, tapping into all his sources of inspiration

Posted on July 19, 2022 at 9:00pm 0 Comments

"It is about having your health. Feeling good and your body working well enough to make music. Music is very physical, takes a lot to play and instrument and sing. Life can be a struggle and people use drugs, liquor and bad relationships to cope. That stuff just breaks you down and you can't go on. Your music and voice is not as good if you do not take care of yourself."

Brad "Guitar" Wilson: The Joy…
