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!

New release from rising roots music star!
Blind Pig Records has released Boom Town, the latest CD from Victor Wainwright & the WildRoots.
Wainwright has been making a name for himself in a big way as one of the most exciting keyboard performers on the roots music scene. Known for his potent boogie piano, big soul sounds, powerhouse blues, roots rock 'n' roll, and a voice that recalls Dr. John and Leon Russell, he's also a two-time winner of the coveted Blues Music Award for "Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year."

Wainwright is a raucous, high-octane dynamic performer and a crowd pleaser with soul to spare. As American Blues News put it, "he is always entertaining and madly talented.  You will never see Victor play a room and not go over with the crowd in a big way."  He's backed by the firepower of WildRoots, one of the tightest smokin' bands around.

Boom Town is highlighted by excellent songwriting, musicianship and production, and a unique and edgy sound that captures the energy of the band's live shows.  With the release of this tour de force of American blues and roots music, Victor's star will surely continue to rise.
