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!

Like It Or Not - Bat-Or Kalo

Bator Kalo was born in Haifa, Israel where she was surrounded by music and art from a young age. Kalo played electric and acoustic guitar in several bands in her hometown, composing and writing lyrics. She furthered her studies of Classical and Jazz Music at the School of Art in Oklahoma City. Based in NYC and traveling back and forth from Israel, Kalo released her first EP, ‘Flesh and Bones,’ recorded in Israel, working alongside Dave Fields at FMI, produced with Yuval Segal and musicians, Eran Mitelman, Bentsi Gafni, Shlomo Deshet and others. The album gained attention throughout Israel, as well as NYC, where the single, ‘Standing,’ was used in the New York play, ‘Miss Kim’ which made its debut at the International Fringe Festival in 2010. Kalo has toured as a trio and with other bands as lead guitarist, performing in NYC, Albany, Boston and Oklahoma. She is currently working on her new album inspired by Country, Blues and Rock and Roll that will be released by Mission 66 Records in the winter of 2012. She holds residence at many bars throughout the Lower East Side, where you can see her performing as an acoustic guitar soloist. Kalo has been compared to the sounds of Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, the White Stripes and Jimi Hendrix.
