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 new release from vocalist Sena Ehrhardt, entitled Leave the Light On, has been nominated for a Blues Music Award in the "Best New Artist Debut" category.
The powerful singer, unquestionably one of the freshest and most dynamic young voices on the blues scene today, has created a stir with her first recording. Pre-eminent blues publication Living Blues remarked, "With Leave the Light On the Sena Ehrhardt Band should get the attention of blues lovers as well as a mainstream audience that appreciates good songwriting and music with a feeling."
And the Jazz and Blues Report added, "The youthful Minneapolis-based singer hits the blues turf running on her debut disc and serves up a captivating set of simultaneous fire and ice...a set of originals as fresh sounding as the voice that delivers them. Make way for a rising star."
