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!

The Sky is Cryin' - Small Train

Here's Small Train's Bio:

My cousin Tim and I have been playing together in various line-ups for over forty years. We had played in rock and top 40 bands, along with a stint in a C & W band. In the late 70's and early 80's we started working on writing original material. Then we started a blues/rock band and with long time friend and drummer, Milton Lewis, we played with a few different bassists off and on until the late 80's. During this time I was side lining, along with bassist Lindsey Purcell in a C&W band. When we'd finally had enogh of the C & W group, Lindsey and I hooked back up with Tim and Milton, who we both had played with in different configurations, and formed Small Train. We cut a demo with 4 originals and 2 covers at a small studio in Henderson Ky. Then we picked up long time aquaintance, Max Jefferson, for lead throat and started playing throughout Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky, with several performances at the annual W.C. Handy Blues Festival in Henderson Ky. In the early 90's we went back to the studio,armed with six new original tunes and cut our first CD, which was self-produced and self-promoted, and sold at our gigs. In 2000 we aquired Jesse Sellers on Lead throat and guitar, and Charlie Crowe on bass and started gigging all over the tristate area. I'm submitting a cut, "A Year Ago Today" from that CD, "SMALL TRAIN Arrives". Also, one from our Live Bootleg album, "Momma's Dream". We have several more original tunes, and are constantly writing more.
