  1. Hi:
    I just stumbled across your site, and couldn’t help but notice that my band, Uncle Watson’s Widow, has popped on your radar. THANK YOU. Please let us know if there is anything we can do in return unclewatsonswidow at gmail.


    • Hindsight is one of my favorite albums of 2021. I am putting the finishing touches on the Roadhouse Hwy 61 best albums of the year and you all are on the list. I will release the list in the next couple of weeks. Hope you all get to tour some during this year to support the recording …or ….perhaps a new one đŸ™‚


      • Man, That is brilliant! Thank you so much for taking the time to give it a listen. As it turns out we are working on our next album now. Hopefully we will be able to get into the studio by Spring. My number 1 issue on my “how the f**k do I make that happen?” list is: How do I get UWW to Europe. Our sales in Europe, and the UK specifically, are literally 10x higher than here at home. When you take population size differences into account it’s obvious that our audience is there (although we do fine here as well, just not “wow! That’s crazy” well, as is the case in Europe). I will definitely keep you posted. Thank you again! Jon


  2. I got to interview Beth Hart backstage some years ago and she had the same comment….touring and the resulting record sales in Europe were HUGE for her. And I believe the same applies to Joe Bonamassa in terms of the early years of his career. Two of the most prominent labels in the Euro market are Ruff Records and Provogue/Mascot. DixieFrog out of France is also an up and comer. Anything you can do to put your music in front of them might be very helpful. At BlueMusicFan Radio, I can see the IP addresses of my listeners, and I would say 60% of the audience for the Roadhouse blues type music I spin is normally from Europe. You are on the right track….keep with it!!


  3. Man! I just finished reading the best of 2020 list. I am very impressed with the breadth, and obvious hard work, goes into what you are doing for “our” genre. I’m sure I’m not alone in my appreciation for your commitment. Thank you!
