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!

"Virtue & Vice" By Hornbuckle Wins Mile High Blues Society's 'Best Self-Produced Blues CD'





                                       
                                             HOORAY FOR HORNBUCKLE:
  "VIRTUE & VICE" WINS 'BEST SELF-PRODUCED CD'
AS VOTED BY DENVER'S MILE HIGH BLUES SOCIETY



  (DENVER, CO) - "Virtue & Vice," the critically-acclaimed album by Denver-based group Hornbuckle, has won "Best Self-Produced CD" as voted on by the Mile High Blues Society in Denver, CO. "Virtue & Vice" will now qualify for the International competition judged by the Blues Foundation in Memphis, TN. The winner will be announced during the IBC Finals on the night of January 24, 2015 at the Orpheum Theatre in the Historic Beale Street District.

  "Virtue & Vice is beautifully recorded and produced," says Mile High Blues Society President, Rick Davis. "The songs are brilliant, sad, and uplifting. Blues ballads telling a story of failure, struggle, and redemption. The performances are first-rate," Davis concludes.

   Hornbuckle, known as "Denver's First Family of the Blues," is fronted by guitarist-vocalist Michael Hornbuckle and brother, Brian Hornbuckle (bass-vocals).


  WHAT THE MEDIA IS SAYING ABOUT HORNBUCKLE'S  "VIRTUE & VICE"


"Hornbuckle's sound is fresh and interesting...these guys have managed to find a way to give the blues a mainstream, pop-driven sound, while at the same time staying true to their bluesy roots. The songs themselves are nothing short of excellent."       
                                     ROCK OVER AMERICA

"Not since ZZ Top and Stevie Ray Vaughan has there been a band that could wind a mean bar room boogie and bring the blues home like the Hornbuckle Brothers. One of the best new independently produced albums of the year."
                                                  XOMBIEWOOF MAGAZINE

"Spearheaded by Michael's smooth, soulful voice (a la Paul Rodgers in Tonality), the quartet presents a thoroughly sophisticated product right down to the subtle instrumentation that makes "Beautiful Rain," "Angels, Addicts, Poets & Thieves," and "Beautiful Rain"sound so rich."
                                   MUSIC CONNECTION

"Michael Hornbuckle's voice is a soulful powerhouse that closely matches the pipes of Paul Rodgers (Bad Company) as the band soars over the blues on Virtue & Vice, their most recent release."
