Over the next several months a number of new roadhouse blues albums will be released. This is just a sampling that includes artists with well established reputations as well as several “up ‘n comers” that I think you will like.
Due in September
Avey Grouws Band – Tell Tale Heart
This band from Iowa was one of my favorites for 2020 and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us in 2021!
Colin Linden – bLOW
Tas Cru – Broke Down Busted Up
Robert Jon & The Wreck – Shine a Light on Me Brother
Another great band from California with a southern blues rockin’ style.
Teresa James & the Rhythm Kings – Rose-Colored Glasses Vol. 1
One of the great voices of the contemporary blues.
Tony Holiday – Porch Sessions Vol. 2
I loved the first Porch Sessions album. This one should be good too!
Altered Five Blues Band – Holler If You Hear Me
Featuring Jeff Taylor, who is an awesome singer, this band out of Wisconsin is a perennial roadhouse favorite.
Due in October
The Doobie Brothers – Liberte
They have had a long and storied career. I have listened to all 4 of the singles released so far and the southern blues rock vibe is great.
Sue Foley – Pinkey’s Blues
A Canadian artist with strong ties to Austin, Texas who is a great guitar player, singer, and songwriter.
Due in November
Robert Plant & Alison Krauss – Raise the Roof
It has been a long time coming but the new collaboration between these two superstars picks up right where they left off!
Due in Early 2022
Eric Gales – I Want My Crown
Produced by Joe Bonamassa. Should be an incredible blues rock recording.
Elles Bailey – Shining in the Half Light
This British talent is a roots blues and blues rocker with a great voice and style.
As they are released or if I am lucky enough to make the early distribution list, you will find songs from these albums in rotation on my 24 hour roadhouse blues stream at WRHB. They will also be featured during my future Ben Vee Roadhouse Blues shows on BluesMusicFanRadio from 12-2 pm EDT on Tuesdays and from 3-5 pm EDT on Thursdays.
