We are back but not for long! After some time at home and for an unexpected root canal for yours truly, we are off to The European Blues Cruise. This is a cruise out of Marseilles and features some of the finest Blues musicians from Chicago and Delmark Records. Including Toronzo Cannon, John Primer, Omar Coleman, Mike Wheeler, Demetria Taylor, Peaches Staten – how cool is that! There will be stopovers at Ibiza, Minorque and Mallorca…can’t wait! ! ! !
So one thing from this trip is that this weeks show will REPEAT next week, and with that being so we have a couple of interesting events to hear/see. Jarekus Singleton, who was a two time #1 place holder here, has returned to the chart and is now ensconced at the #1 spot, and since this show will play again next week, I guess he’s at #1 again for 2 weeks.
With that in mind we chose our Amuse Bouche segment to feature artists who are ‘flying under the radar‘. These are musicians from around the globe that ya might not be hip to and we want you to take notice of them. So by running this show for two weeks we can give them all some extra love and PR.
Within that Amuse Bouche we are honored to have two world premieres, one from my favorite lady singer from Nashville Markey Blue and her release Hey Hey, this baby won’t hit the streets till September so get those ears tuned to it now, right here.
The other world debut is a cool cat from Canada, who I met at the IBC’s several years ago. We gave it back and forth to each other earning each others respect and I am proud to be debuting his new release ‘Girl With A New Tattoo’, I know you will dig the track we are featuring from The Kirby Sewell Band.
One other band who caught my ear when we were driving to Jackson, was the band called House of Dues. A damn sure funky and syncopated band that writes songs about real life situations – the feature track is called ‘Addiction’, we leave it at that.
Two new additions to the play chart – Fo’ Reel with their new release Heavy Water, and Legendary Rod Piazza‘s new release Emergency Situation. You know it’s gonna be good if Rod & Honey are involved.
