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!

Screen Door Records artist: Kirsten Thien - Solo Live From The Meisenfrei Blues Club - New Release Review

I just received the newest release (June 4, 2013), Solo Live From The Meisenfrei Blues Club, by Kirsten Thien. Thien, a Georgetown University Business School grad turned singer has put together a solid 15 track solo album where she expresses herself nicely vocally and accompanies herself on acoustic guitar. One of my favorites on this release, Ain't That The Truth is a clean acoustic folk blues track written by Thien. The release is consistently good including tracks by Ida Cox (Wild Women Don't Have The Blues), Dylan(It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry), Sheryl Crow (Leaving Las Vegas), Sippie Wallace (Women Be Wise)another of my favorites on the release; Elvin Bishop (Fooled Around And Fell In Love), Leon Russell (I'd Rather be Blind), Bill Withers (Ain't No Sunshine)and Roy Hawkins and Rick Darnell (The Thrill Is Gone). A relatively sedate folk blues recording, Thien really uses the stage to showcase her voice nicely. There aren't any screaming guitars, and there's no harmonica, but it is blues in a nice polished vocal package ready to be enjoyed.
