Blues Rock Review celebrates 10 year anniversary

It’s hard to believe that Blues Rock Review has been around for 10 years, but we’re still around and kicking. Blues Rock Review was founded in May of 2010. At the time I was 21 years old getting ready to enter my senior year of college. I grew up always enjoying rock music but it wasn’t until this time that I really started appreciating the blues. I was always aware of the genre growing up in a house hearing Stevie Ray Vaughan and other blues artists. My father had a large CD collection featuring music from blues and blues rock artists.

Dion releases “Can’t Start Over” video featuring Jeff Beck

Dion has released a music video for “Can’t Start Over” featuring Jeff Beck. The track is featured on Dion’s upcoming album, Blues With Friends, available June 5th.

“My earliest influences were country blues, especially Hank Williams. Any money I earned I took to the neighborhood record store, where the owner used to razz me about my “hillbilly” tastes,” says Dion. “I guess I still have that hillbilly inside. For my last album I wrote a song called ‘I Can’t Go Back to Memphis,’ but I go back there with this number. It’s about love and loss and heartache, the classic themes. I believe it’s a true blues song. I asked Jeff Beck to play something on it, he said yes! What can I say, it’s Jeff Beck.”
