Episode 178: Marcus Rezak

Feb. 15, 2019

What’s so remarkable about our scene is how many musicians are part of it, that we don’t unfortunately readily know. Like other genres or other scenes, or indeed in life, there are those that toil in near obscurity, honing their craft, and occasionally making “big league” appearances. Such is the c…

Episode 174: Derek Trucks

Feb. 1, 2019

I’ve had a chance to listen to the forthcoming Signs from the Tedeschi Trucks Band, multiple times, and it’s definitely eclectic and very strong. Their fourth album might be their finest collection of tunes to date. It’s a deeply personal album, and this band, has been through quite a bit the last …

Episode 140: Doyle Bramhall II

Sept. 27, 2018

We’ve had so many talented people on the show since we began in January 2017, but few have had the recording, producing and touring career Doyle Brahmill the Second has had. Since he arrived on the scene back in 1992 with the Arc Angels, Doyle’s discography looks like an exhibit at the Rock n’ Roll…

Living in the shadow of a family member is nothing anyone truly wants to deal with. Particularly, when your parent, is a musician in a world famous band who is adored by millions of people. Following in their footsteps, can be, and likely is a daunting task, but being able to carve out a niche for …

Warren Haynes, has been a favorite musician of mine, and indeed the scene dating back to his time with the Dickey Betts Band, his subsequent tenure with The Allman Brothers Band, and more recently and since, with his own outfit Gov’t Mule. Along the way, he’s played in other projects including the …

Episode 93: Matthew Stubbs

April 6, 2018

Truth be told when I first hit play on this record I was a touch confused. Matthew was dubbed as blues instrumentalist, who has played with Charlie Musslewhite, but what I heard was something totally different. A bit of a mind bender to be sure. You see Matthews music combines all kinds of genres l…

Episode 83: JD Simo

Feb. 26, 2018

SIMO is a band that is difficult to define, and I am not sure you need to. They are a traditional power trio featuring namesake JD Simo on guitar with Elad Shapiro and Adam Abrashoff making up the rhythm section. We sat down with JD recently to get an understanding of why it is so hard to define hi…

Feb. 12, 2018

Hannah Wicklund is a 20 year old that brings a very mature sonic presence, and I think you’ll agree both her playing and singing is solid for anyone of any age. Hannah wears her influences on her sleeve, and her 3rd record, this one self titled, will no doubt be her break through. We caught up wi…

When we caught up with Devon Allman a few months back, he was all jazzed about his new project, and getting to share the stage with Duane Betts in the Devon Allman Project. We’ve been playing tag with Duane on Instagram ever since, and we finally had the chance to sit down and chat. Dude is busy wi…

Jan. 22, 2018

G.Love is actually Garrett Dutton, a Philadelphia native who toiled in clubs and bars playing his brand of hip hop blues before getting to Boston where he met the “special sauce” in 93. That connection propelled G. to his first record deal and 25 years later, the rest as they say is history. Since …

Samantha Fish launched her career in 2009 and hasn’t looked back. She has cemented her place amongst up and comers in the blues world, and has begun branching out, playing other genres quite capably. That’s the thing these days, its hard to pigeon hole artists in one spot, and quite frankly as you’…

Episode 65: Devon Allman

Dec. 4, 2017

I remember watching the tribute to Gregg Allman, Butch Trucks and Col. Bruce Hampton put on at the Peach Festival last summer, thinking that this one event didn’t do those three gentlemen especially Gregg and all he had done for us enough justice. Don’t get me wrong, I thought the jam was magnifice…
