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!

JW & Jamie & Laura's Excellent Adventure...

JW and his band, Jamie Holmes on drums and Laura Greenberg on bass, are currently touring the U.S. in support of the album.   So far it's been an eventful tour:

In Sacramento, California, local favorite Little Charlie Baty came down to the Torch Club and sat in with JW's band. Said Charlie, "Catch them if you can - they are an impressive band of young Canadian blues performers." http://mailman.305spin.com/users/blindpigrecords/images/Charlie-Baty-Web.jpg

The next day, JW and his bandmates attended a taping of the Conan show in Burbank, where they got to meet Conan O'Brien and rub shoulders backstage with Miley Cyrus. http://mailman.305spin.com/users/blindpigrecords/images/Conan-Web.jpg
