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!

Solomon King Brings His 'New School Blues' To Hollywood's Piano Bar


Acclaimed L.A. Guitarist Brings His "New-School Blues" To
The Piano Bar In Hollywood - Saturday, May 11
  (Hollywood, CA) - Solomon King, talented purveyor of "New-School Blues" and no stranger to the Southern California music landscape, performs in concert at The Piano Bar, 6429 Selma Ave., Hollywood, Saturday, May 11. 9 p.m. No cover. Info: (323) 466-2750 or logo onto
  King - a 2009 Grammy Awards entrant nominee in the Contemporary Blues category for his Under The Sun release - was recently in the news for "The Phil Spector Incident," his movie remake of the high-profile Phil Spector trial that also includes a ten-song companion soundtrack ("Live On") with a stripped-down, sensuous version of Spector's Wall of Sound classic, "Be My Baby." "With King, the blues are in good hands," writes Ashley Jude Collie of The Huffington Post. "His New-School Blues' includes some modern riffs on traditional blues, and beyond." BMans Blues Report states, "King's track 'Suicide' features hot guitar riffs that will blow your hair back."

   In a review of King's forthcoming release, Train, John Vermilyea of Blues Underground opines, "after listening to Train I must once again put his music into a category for which the term brilliant is first and foremost...packed with truly great tunes from beginning to end. A really great album from one of the better singers, songwriters, and guitarists performing nowadays. Highly recommended and thoroughly enjoyed."
