A week of catchup and sleep (yeh again) We managed to go through our photos from the BMA’s and have them posted here on site. We included snaps from the event, plus Clarksdale & Jackson, hope ya enjoy them.
A great new #1 this week – Hard Garden, and their song ‘Showtime!’ – this band is really at the forefront of the blues combining hip-hop tendencies, with Mississippi Hill Country stlye and strait ahead blues. We at Blues411 feel this band should get serious consideration at BMA nomination time for Contemporary Blues Album of the Year, let’s see what the ‘ex-perts’ think.
A major debut for Tweed Funk as they debut at #9 on the play list with their funked uo blues/soul sound of their ‘First name Lucky’ release. Two more new debuts we feature are Cathy Lemons, long time San Francisco blyes singer & writer and her ‘Black Crow’ release. ALso we have a most underrated artist Shane Dwight in what might be his best release to date ‘This House’. Hope ya dig them and give some love to them in the market place.
One addition toour Chef Suggestion group is — Ron Tanski – Ron’s tune ‘Blues for Jimi’ has been played as part of the show since the beginning, and I know you are all familiar with it. Now he has released his latest ‘Never Pet A Burning Dog’ which features ‘Blues for Jimi’ as well as a wealth of great piano and songwriting selections, This week we are featuring ‘What’s Cooking’ which is the nephew of my theme song.
