Hope you enjoy the video links to these new single releases by 4 contemporary roadhouse blues artists that I absolutely love!
Tommy Castro – Somewhere
A California bluesman with a southern soul, Tommy Castro premiered his new single on August 9th. The album will be released September 17th and is entitled Tommy Castro Presents A Bluesman Came To Town.
Joe Bonamassa – Notches
Joe’s new single for his yet untitled new album bears the strong influence of Australia. Featuring the use of the didgeridoo and Australian musicians Lachy Doley, Mahalia Barnes, Bunna Lawrie, the song is somehow still vintage Joe B!
Teresa James & the Rhythm Tramps – Takes One to Know One
Teresa is truly one of the great voices of the contemporary roadhouse blues and has been for a long time. This single is from the new album Rose-Colored Glasses Vol. 1 due out on September 17th.
Colin James – Down On the Bottom
Featuring stellar guitar licks, Colin covers a Dylan tune with a blues rockin’ delivery that has made him one of Canada’s favorite performers over a career that spans 30 years.
