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!

Northport N.Y.- For the first time in M.C. Records history we have two recordings on The Roots Music Report Blues Charts. Debbie Davies' After The Fall has been on the charts for two months and is currently no. 5. Debbie's latest is shaping up to be one the most successful of her impressive career. Rick Holmstrom's first release in 5 years, the all-original Cruel Sunrise, has been on the charts for three weeks and sits at the no. 9 position. You can check out the this weeks chart right here.




Since the release of After The Fall on July 17 Debbie Davies has toured the U.K., the Midwest and the West coast. The 10 time Blues Music Award nominee has received fantastic reviews and has been interviewed on XM/Sirius B.B. Kings Bluesville and The Guitar Show with Andy Ellis. More good news is on the way. Look for her upcoming Canadian tour later this month.

Check out these great reviews!

"After the Fall" (M.C. Records) is an 11-track LP of slashing hooks and cathartic riffs that echo the hardships Davies endured and her efforts to overcome them. The Connecticut Post

Searing, pulsating riffs and house-rockin' performances with clever lyrics and gut-check emotion are featured on "After the Fall," The Toledo Blade

This might be one of the best blues releases this year. Blues Blast Magazine


Cruel Sunrise is Rick Holmstrom's first solo recording in five years and features Mavis Staples on two tracksRick and his band have been recording and touring with Mavis Staples for the last five years. He received a Grammy in 2010 for his work on Mavis'  "You Are Not Alone," produced by Jeff Tweedy (of Wilco). Rick has a bunch of solo dates in the LA area and continues leading Mavis Staples band.

Rick Holmstrom is just too talented and restrained to release anything less than professionally crafted. All Music Guide

Each track is blissfully inventive. Holmstrom creates a blues that is effortless to vibe to. Where Y'At

This is real forward thinking white boy blues that charts the future but can be enjoyed in the here and now. Well done. Midwest Records
