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!

Billie Williams - Hell To Pay - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Hell To Pay, from Billie Williams and it's deep. Opening with Damn, a dark, lumbering blues rocker, Williams leads this tempest of a storm on vocal with strong guitar support from Stew Cutler, Jeremy Mage on power keys, Double Z on heavy bass and Tony Allen on tight drums. On radio track, Start All Over, Williams fleshes out the track with the addition of Rob Sussman and Dan Levin on trombone, Seneca Black and Jim Hynes on trumpet, Stan Killian and Chriz Eminizer on sax Manuel Quintana and Jeff Lipstein on percussion and a full round of backing vocalists. Drink From My Cup has a cool backbeat and a cool pace. Mage lays down some real nice piano lines and the snappy drumming by Allen and the punchy trombone work by Levine and Sussman really sets a great foundation for Williams. Wrapping the release is my favorite track, Ten Million Sisters, a modern plantation style track with rich vocals and stomping percussion by Williams and backing by Ardys Flavelle, Anni Krueger, Veronica Nunn, Gail Ann Dorsey, Eric Redd, Lindsey Webster, Double Z, Gabrielle Montoute, Marissa Von Bleicken, Ruth Ungar and Tracy Toler - Phillips. Excellent!
