CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

If I Could Borrow Some of Your Love - EC Scott & Smoke

No less a music industry legend than Jerry Wexler, co-founder of Atlantic Records, called E.C. Scott “one honest-to-God soul singer.” High praise indeed from the man who produced Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, and Wilson Pickett! Blues and R&B diva E.C. Scott possesses a warm, inviting voice and a delivery that can be smooth and sultry one minute and sassy and sexy the next. She can mesmerize a crowd down to a whisper or rock them into a loud frenzy. Masterpiece, Scott’s most recent release and her third on the Blind Pig label, is easily her most accomplished effort to date, brilliantly showcasing her special blend of R&B and soul-inflected blues. And with eleven of the twelve songs originals, it also spotlights her considerable talent as a songwriter. Stereo Review called E.C.’s songwriting “Brass tacks poetry that is witty, often ribald, sometimes sweet, and always perceptive.” E.C. Scott has developed her own style, a refreshingly original and distinctively modern approach. Her enticing, rich voice, hook-laden arrangements, and intelligent, at times humorous, lyrics come together to produce songs that aren’t easily forgotten. “I want my music to have that old R&B flavor but with a new sound,” she says. While growing up in Oakland, California, E.C. spent most of her time singing in St. John Missionary Baptist Church.
