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!

Bad News Travels - John Ginty

A Morristown, New Jersey native, organist John Ginty has toured and recorded with artists such as Jewel, Citizen Cope, Santana, Dixie Chicks, Matthew Sweet, Court Yard Hounds, Bad Religion, and he was an original member of Robert Randolph and the Family Band, a band in which he received two Grammy Nominations, as well as a Gospel Music Award for Urban Album of the year in 2003. That same year, John appeared on the Blind Boys of Alabama's Grammy Award winner Higher Ground. His discography spans over a decade and a half, and demonstrates his eclectic influences and unique sounds on the keys. "John steps out into the spotlight for his 2013 release “Bad News Travels”, on the American Showplace label. Produced by Ben Elliott (Keith Richards, Eric Clapton) the record is rooted in the blues, and showcases John’s abilities on the Hammond B-3 organ." “Bad News Travels” also features some stellar guest performances by such notables as Martie Maguire from the Dixie Chicks and Court Yard Hounds on fiddle, Warren Haynes from the Allman Brothers Band and Govt. Mule on guitar, label mate Todd Wolfe on guitar, Florida bluesman Albert Castiglia on vocals and guitar, Brooklyn based blues singer Alecia Chakour, Baltimore big shot Cris Jacobs on guitar and vocals, and John’s long time recording companion Neal Casal on guitar.
