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!

Canadian Bluesman Brandon Isaak Releases New CD Here On Earth March 25th

 
 
 
 
Born and raised in Whitehorse, Yukon and currently sharing his time between home and British Columbia, Brandon “Yukon Slim” Isaak is one of Canada's most authentic blues musicians on the scene today.
 
What separates Brandon Isaak from the rest of the pack, besides his professional musicianship and songwriting, is his ability to connect and involve the audience in his live shows. He is a master storyteller with a sharp sense of humour and his affinity for the rawness and spontaneity of the blues is second to none, as anyone who has had the privilege of being in his audiences will tell you. An accomplished and versatile musician, Isaak plays a wide variety of music styles in his one-man shows, including Ragtime, Delta Blues, Piedmont, Gospel and Swing.
 
Set for release on March 25, 2014, Here on Earth is the follow up to his debut solo album Bluesman's Plea. It was recorded and produced in Whitehorse at Blue-Star Studios by his brother Chris Isaak. This all original album showcases Isaak’s exemplary songwriting, organic vocals and tasteful guitar thus proving he is one of the top acoustic acts in the country. Here on Earth features special guests including Keith Picot on upright bass, Daniel Lapp on cornet and fiddle, fellow Yukoners Andrea McColeman on concertina and Ed White on drums.
 
It is a compelling and thoughtful album that takes the listener down some new roads. It proves that Brandon Isaak is willing to share his soul and wear his heart on his sleeve with his true stories of the colourful characters he has met throughout his journey here on Earth.
