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!

Joel DaSilva - Everywhere From Here - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Everywhere From Here, by Joel DaSilva and it's strong. Opening with straight up rocker, Shake, Joel DaSilva shows influences of blues and rock roots in Sonny Boy Williamson and Led Zeppelin as well as country. Lead singer and guitarist shows his skill in both arenas firing stinging riffs to compliment his solid vocals. Great opener. Down In The Delta has a great lumbering pace with over driven vocals and soulful blues guitar riffs, over the bass of Robert Cleary, drums of Chris Peet and keys by Tom Regis. Super. A cool swing number, Cadillac Mama has a great lope and super double stop blues accents. Natasha Watkins' backing vocal contributions add a real nice touch and DaSilva feels like Anson. Very cool. With a bit more rock authority, This Day I Bleed has hard guitar bends and fiery riffs. Shuffle track, Spell On Me, hits a super groove and DaSilva is right on it. Tight, bluesy guitar riffs and snappy drum rhythms deliver this track. One of my favorite tracks on the release, Time Heals All Wounds, is pure deep blues and DaSilva digs deep for just the right phrases in this Elmore James based track. Excellent! Wrapping the release is My Brazillion Soul, a super Latin style track with strong drum work by Peet and percussion work by Rick Rico Geragi. The melody is served up on a silver platter by DaSilva's guitar making this an excellent closer for a strong release.
