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!

Scorch Sisters are back, hotter and better than ever! Fresh off their recent accolades being recognized by longtime respected industry trade publication Music Connection as a "Top 100 Live Artist Of The Year For 2012." The Los Angeles-based group (Francesca Capasso, lead vocals; Alicia McCracken Morgan, keyboards-vocals; Kimberly Allison, lead guitar) were featured on the cover (above) and inside with a two-page spread of "The Blues Issue" in February by The Music Initiative magazine.A great feature on the trio in a recent L.A. Examiner article by Will Phoenix states, "these croonin' cuties just may be the hottest blues act in Los Angeles." Watch for a new Scorch Sisters album to be released on Allison's Starliner Music label later this Summer.

Upcoming Scorch Sisters Shows: Ann the Raven's Birthday Bash, July 14 (Weber's Place); Ladies Play The Blues, July 17 (The Joint)

Calvin B. Streets, a/k/a "The Brooklyn Bluesman," states, "If you look in any calendar section around this great country from town to city to roadhouse, the Blues are everywhere. From festivals to open mic nights. The Blues are America's original art form and gift to the world and American Bluesmen and Women lead the vanguard. I am proud to just be a link in the chain." As for Street's background: "I literally learned at the feet of some of the greatest first- and second-generation bluesmen during my time up at Centrum in Port Townsend, Washington. I would have to start with Louisiana Red who not only showed me slide and feeling in so many styles of blues, but also humanity and soul. To know him was to truly love him. John Cephas, the legendary Piedmont King was also more patient with me then perhaps I deserved. Honeyboy Edwards was fascinating. Kenny Sultan, Eddie Pennington. Carey and Lurie Bell, Phil Wiggins. I know I left out so many."

Upcoming Calvin B. Streets Shows: House of Blues/L.A., Friday July 13
