Behind John Mayer’s “I Guess I Just Feel Like”

John Mayer has never shied away from saying how he truly feels through his songs, but his recent single ‘I Guess I Just Feel Like’ is the artist stripped down to the core. This is his first track since his 2018 hit single ‘New Light’, but this time, his only goal is to be honest.

Bonamassa weighs in on Spotify

We live in a world where streaming is king and platforms like Spotify rule the day, but is that a good thing for musicians?

In an interview with Blues Rock Review, Joe Bonamassa said, “I know musicians, songwriters in Nashville that have had 25, 30 million spins on Spotify or Pandora or where ever they think and they got a check as a principle writer for the song for $750. Now you tell me how that pays the bills?” Bonamassa added, “They are now systematically telling people that creativity and artwork is free.”

Jeremie Albino: Hard Time Review

Born in Toronto, Jeremie Albino’s music came to life in Prince Edward County.

Savoy Brown: City Night Review

Before a single note is heard, City Night defines a vision of urban nightlife as seen through the blues-coated ears of Kim Simmonds. In lieu of sharp angles and precise architecture, the hazy, dripping-with-paint cover suggests an aural onslaught of tones and colors, and the music within lives up to the expectation. Simmonds, Pat DeSalvo (bass) and Garnet Grimm (drums) reload as Savoy Brown in an attempt to reprise 2017s acclaimed Witchy Feelin. The album’s twelve tracks aggressively strip standard blues structures to their core and rebuild them with throbbing rhythm and searing guitar.

Kris Barras Band release “What You Get” video

The Kris Barras Band has released a music video for “What You Get.” The video is off the upcoming album, Light It Up, available September 13. The video includes cameo appearances from Jonny Lang, Eric Gales, Walter Trout, and more.

“I’d say that this is probably the most typical KBB song on the album,” says Barras. “It summarizes the sound that I have become known for;  foot-stomping, twangy riffs and a big, catchy chorus. We’ve been playing this song live for the past six months and it always goes down really well. People were hearing it for the first time and they’re all singing along by the time it reaches the last chorus. That’s when we knew it had to be a single.”
