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!

New Victor Wainwright CD Charts at Billboard!
#5 On Billboard Sales Chart
Boom Town, the new release from Victor Wainwright and the WildRoots, popped onto the Billboard blues sales chart at #5 this week!
Boom Town

Boom Town is a tour de force of American blues and roots music highlighted by excellent songwriting, musicianship and production, and a unique and edgy sound that captures the energy of the band's live shows.  Wainwright, one of the most dynamic and exciting keyboard performers around, is a raucous, high-octane dynamic performer and a crowd pleaser with soul to spare.

Living Blues
magazine said, "Listening to Boom Town is like walking into a party that will never end. This eight-piece band specializes in supercharged blues and boogie-woogie piano, smart and sophisticated arrangements and an all-consuming passion for delivering songs with confidence and joy."
