All great choices .
Eliza Neals win win
Joanne Shaw Taylor- Blues from the heart!
Dan Patlansky would be my second choice.
Katie Henry- On my way! Rockin the blues gets my vote
Totally Larry McCray…such amazing talent!
Dom Martin for me….a tremendous new Irish talent
Eliza Neals is the truth. Badder to the bone is a must have.
Katie Henry. “On My Way” Blues at its best. Can’t get enough of her amazing sound.
Lots of great albums this year, Anthony Gomes gets my pick for #1.
I also vote for Katie Henry – On My Way
Marcus King not only for blue rock, but for rock overall.
Jimmy Hall – Ready Now !! incredible album all the way through…
It’s got my vote!
Totally agree! Deserves a top spot on this chart
Larry McCray is the King of Blues!
Anthony Gomes!!! All the way. Such talent
Shemeka Copeland scored huge with me on her latest release.
Edgar Winter – Brother Johnny
Anthony Gomes. Love his new album BLUESAFIED.
Edgar Winter’s Grammy nominated ‘Brother Johnny’ is beautiful work of musical art and heartfelt perfection.
Edgar Winter – Brother Johnny- True Genius
Katie Henry – On my way – has my vote.
Love always finding out what albums I’ve missed.. just about everybody listed here.. Anthony Gomes, Edgar Winter, Katie Henry, Jimmy Hall.
One I think is not listed is Ann Wilson’s Fierce Bliss. It’s my write in. Couple of killer tracks with Warren Haynes and Gov’t Mule. Would love to see a Gov’t Mule album featuring Ann Wilson.
Anthony Gomes The best
Cardinal Black. Absolutely the band of the year for me. Mind blowing, soulful and one of the best guitarists on the planet right now.
Voted every day for Katie Henry – On My Way
DOM MARTIN – sorry Aynsley!
Wow, what a choice.
There all fantastic.
Anthony Gomes, with his high voltage blues guitar and killer songwriting chops is at the top of his game!!
Anthony Gomes for sure! Great singer, songwriter, musician with a sense of humor. Saw him perform live a couple of times and he never disappoints! Fantastic!
Dan Patlansky, Shelter of Bones, an absolute masterpiece ?
Anthony Gomes blew us away from the first time we saw him and that has been several years ago. Great talent.
Voted again today for Katie Henry – On My Way 🙂
My choice is Anthony Gomes. Awesome record.
So many great artists and albums! Anthony Gomes got my vote. Killer blues, great sound!
Voted Brave Rival. Come on world. See this band and question why they are not headlining sell -out tours. Best new band I’ve seen in years.
Edgar Winter, Johnny!!
Bernard Allison who is a huge artist whose talent is matched only by his big heart !
Katie Henry – On My Way – surely gets my voice again
Anthony Gomes is an electrifying talent. I wish I could write a few songs for that voice.
This guy deserves some more spotlight.
Eliza Neals always original no repeated songs lyrics or ideas
Best of the best ‼️BLUESAFIED
Katie Henry – On My Way… again
Honest Lies ~The Justin Saladino Band~ ?♥️?
High Voltage Blues- Anthony Gomes
Badass Rock N Blues!!
Thanks Anthony ❤
Katie Henry – On My Way
Trust me folks, while Shemekia Copeland was a real front runner, the new G-20 cd release tops any and everything on this long list of great CDs.
Justin Saladino Band: Honest Lies all the way!
A perfect blend of country, blues and rock! Well done JSB!
Katie Henry – On My Way once again
Larry McCray – Blues Without You
Larry McCray deserves all of the recognition and accolades a musician could possibly receive. Aside from being a very kind and humble man with a sincere heart for the music and his fans, Larry is without a doubt the best blues guitarist working today, bar none. His seemingly endless creativity, his sense of melody and harmony, and his superhuman technique put him head and shoulders above the rest, in my opinion. His guitar prowess is equally matched by his chillbump-raising vocal abilities. Very few performers today share his ability to project power and soul with as much pure emotion in their voice the way Larry can.
I realize music is not a competition, and opinions are subjective, but for me there’s no one else putting it all together and laying it down like Larry does. With or without awards on his shelf, Larry is a living legend who’s legacy will be that of a man with unbelievable musical abilities equaled by his unbelievable heart; a role model for us all.
Justin Saladino Band!!! Honest Lies is an awesome blues rock album! Great melodies and lyrics. Let’s recognize our younger artists ‘cause they are our future musicians!
There are many great choices on this list. I voted for Anthony Gomes’ “High Voltage Blues.” If you haven’t heard of hime, visit his web site and give his music a try. It is excellent, rowdy rocking’ blues music, great songs and lyrics. After hearing his music for the first time a couple years ago, I went back and bought all his earlier material. It’s all good!
Cardinal Black – hands down the best band around at the moment, big Tom with a tone of are soul and Chris buck shredding riffs like Ramsey cutting carrots!
Lyrical genius and powerful sucker punches. If you haven’t already, I suggest pouring a Smokey whiskey, lighting a Cuban and sitting back in that chair and giving these guys a listen!
Anthony Gomez gets my vote.
High Voltage Blues
Anthony Gomes!! Amazing talent and great stage performances!!
Anthony Gomes – High Voltage Blues
Katie Henry – On My Way
