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!

Selfe has cemented his reputation as a masterful, dyed-through,
true bluesman with his new release, Buy My Soul Back on
the VizzTone Label. This latest collection of songs
reveals an unwavering dedication to the traditional blues
school, and yields yet another deft homage to empty wallets,
ne-er-do-wells, and the enduring theme of love's rapid melt.
Selfe's transformation into a leading voice on the American
blues scene was realized after landing on the Billboard and
Living Blues Charts with his 2013 release, Long Walk
lauded for a traditional melodic sensibility broadcast through
razor sharp guitar, Selfe's songwriting awakens, revealing an
enriched sense of story telling, autobiography, and revelation.
Audiences from Virginia to Oregon,
Selfe's former and current homes, thrill at his commitment
to the role of high octane blues entertainer on the live stage
-- where this new companion of songs was inspired, refined, and
perfected. Selfe's shows are part blues revival, part
force of nature.
list of blues stalwarts joining Selfe on Buy My Soul
Back reads like a contemporary blues primer:
Sugaray Rayford, Jimi Bott, Mitch Kashmar, Lisa
Mann, Gene Taylor, James Pace, Willie J. Campbell and host of
others. All combine to join forces with Selfe in a rich
tapestry of traditional grooves seemingly forged in the
speak-easies of mid-century Chicago, the Mississippi
Delta, and rural Texas. The tributes are
authentic. The energy is palpable. The musicianship
is extraordinary. True blues fans will rejoice.
Selfe has followed up his highly successful album Long Walk Home
with a recording just as strong if not more so. He showcases his
knack for writing clever and catchy songs, sensational and tasty
guitar work and his strong vocals to help him deliver the best
package of music possible."
