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!

Show me the way - Dani Dorchin

I am Dani Dorchin, an israeli musician and song writer, currently performing as a one man band, playing energetic, groovy, bluesy songs on guitar, harmonica and foot drums. My debut album, released January 2014, was recorded live in a studio in Tel Aviv in an attempt to capture the raw energy of a live show. No overdubs were used. All my favorite albums were recorded that way and this is my way of connecting to that tradition and to feel like I'm doing something real. I hope it works. The one man band project is my first solo effort, coming after years of playing harmonica with top Israeli acts, such as Asaf Avidan, Black Bruises, Lunacidal Tendencies and The Greenbaums, to name a few. Recently I have been honored to open for and play with blues greats Rev. KM Williams and LC Ulmer on their 2013 Israeli tours, an experience I have never even imagined possible when picking up guitar and harmonica in my mid twenties. Growing up on a kibbutz in northern Israel, a stone's throw away from the historic town of Nazareth, there wasn't much live music around, not blues anyway. Still my childhood was full of music, which came from my father's vast collection of blues and jazz records. From early in my childhood I can recall records of such greats as Big Bill Broonzy, Sonny Terry or Leadbelly being played full blast late into the night. These childhood sounds finally found their way to my guitar after years of travelling the world and learning to play from people I've met on the road. Hopefully this new album will take me back on the road... It actually allready does as this January I am representing the Israeli Blues Society in the 2014 international blues contest in Memphis, Tennesse.
