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!

Ivor S.K. - Montserrat - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Montserrat, from Ivor S.K. and it's quite enjoyable. Opening with title track, Montserrat, Ivor picks up where he left off on EP Delta Pines. A cool boogie, features Ivor backing his own vocals on guitar, bass and drums. Showing a tight sense of rhythm and stylistic guitar chops this is a very nice opener. Ain't No Cross is a contemporary ballad with a strong root in the blues. Ivor's vocals are solid and his melodic style is super. I Been Had is a cool island rhythm track which a solid guitar refrain. Snappy percussion and haunting guitar soloing makes this a really cool track. It's raining is a super sultry ballad with an intoxicating melody and nicely appointed guitar work. With a funky rhythm contrasted against minimal instrumentation, Take Me Back To New Orleans has a great feel. Indianola is a cool, modern, acoustic instrumental blues showing precision execution on guitar. Very nice. Wrapping the release is shuffle track, Good Mawnin' Judge. Ivor's voice is different but very likable and his ability to tell a story while dazzling you with his solid guitar work sets a high bar in contemporary blues interpretation.
