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!

New Southern Hospitality video!
"Don't Feel Like Going There Today"  Southern Hospitality, the all-star roots-blues/Americana ensemble that's creating a musical stir in the Deep South and beyond, has just released a video of a song from their new Blind Pig album, Easy Livin.'  The group is fronted by guitar and lap steel whiz Damon Fowler, another guitar ace from Florida, JP Soars, and pianoman extraordinaire Victor Wainwright from Memphis, and backed by a sterling rhythm section of Chris Peet on drums and Chuck Riley on bass.

The video features a live performance of  "Don't Feel Like Going There Today," where the band splashes a tasty helping of sweet Southern soul sauce over the inviting reggae-inflected tune written and sung by Fowler.  No Depression described the song as a "Marley lope overlaid with some twisted, wiggly guitar work by Soars and Fowler, backed by some itchy organ from Wainwright."

Easy Livin', which was produced in Louisiana by blues star Tab Benoit, debuted in the Top Ten on the Billboard blues sales chart.  Fans and critics alike are responding enthusiastically to SoHo's distinctive mix of Southern soul, rootsy rock and swampy blues.  Twangville called the CD a "swampy gumbo recipe reminiscent of classic southern rockers Little Feat (during the Lowell George years) with a selection ranging from soul-inflected blues, to country, to jazz, to straight-ahead rock."  Barrehouse Blues added, "The musicianship throughout is superb...a stunning tribute to the styles of music that make American music so great."
