Fantastic Negrito: Please Don’t Be Dead Review

‘Some people have said my music is “too bluesy for rock, too rocking for blues, too soulful for this country, too funky for that country.” I don’t believe in genres; I believe in music, I don’t believe in countries; I believe in people.’ – Fantastic Negrito.

Buddy Guy: The Blues is Alive and Well Review

I was actually a bit nervous to review Buddy Guy’s latest album. He’s 81-years-old and musicians, even great ones, eventually lose a step. Guy hasn’t lost a step, though. If anything, he’s somehow gotten better. The Blues is Alive and Well is a fantastic album, and Guys’ voice and guitar are in peak form.

Ally Venable Band: Puppet Show Review

The next taxi off the rank in the blues/rock genre is 19-year-old Texan Ally Venable. This is the second release by this three-piece, Ally on guitar/vocals, Elijah Owings drums and bassist Bobby Wallace, along with some choice guests. Featuring eight originals and two covers, given the intense competition in the female blues/rock world, this album shines like a beacon.

Joe Barksdale: Butterflies, Rainbows and Moonbeams Review

The track record of professional athlete/musical artists isn’t great. You have Kobe and Shaquille O’Neal, who mostly seemed to perform music about each other. Quarterback Terry Bradshaw did six country albums, even charting a hit. Beloved New York Mets icon Tug McGraw never made an album, but he made country star Tim McGraw, which counts for something. Joe Barksdale, offensive tackle for the LA Chargers, has bucked the trend, though, with Butterflies, Rainbows and Moonbeams, a shockingly good album of funk, soul, and blues.

Kris Barras Band releases “Stitch Me Up” video

The Kris Barras Band has released a music video for “Stitch Me Up.” The track is featured on the Barras’ latest album, The Divine and Dirty.

“This is a track that I love to play live and it was great to use footage from our ‘Divine and Dirty’ tour to make the video,” said Barras. “Although it’s different when it comes to my music, I actually don’t take myself too seriously. There’s plenty of backstage moments captured in this vid where I’m pi**ing about! We had great fun on the tour and I think this video sums it up well.”
