Bryan Himes...One Night In the Delta..new release from Kentucky songwriter

Take a trip to the delta and experience Bryan Himes sitting roadside by a full moon playing the blues like only he can. It feels and sounds like your right there with him in the dead of the night as the hounds howl off in the distance, crickets chirping, a cold chill runs up your spine. What was that sound? Did you hear that?


A soulful songwriter who records most of his material live,relying on vibe and musicianship, Bryan Himes is a breath of fresh air with his diverse selection of songs.He has shared the stage with Everlast, Chip Taylor, Tommy Womack, Carrie Rodriguez, Paul 'Wine" Jones, to name a few. His music has been played all over the world along side greats like Buddy Guy and John Lee Hooker. 

Bottom Line: One Voice, one guitar... that's what you get.. you might think it would't be very entertaining, or limiting in style, but you would be very very wrong.... the music is excellent... Bryan has the ability to put himself on the line with just his voice and his acoustic guitar. 4 out of 5 Stars”....Robert T Murphy - Blues on Stage by the Blues Foundation

Heartily inspired by Son House, Robert Johnson, Keb Mo, and Jimi Hendrix, he is boiling water, white-flaming excitement and high-wired... he is a habanero pepper.. all emotion hanging out, gut-churning and gritty...”  CD Baby http://www.cdbaby.com/style/blues

“..shows he can carry the show alone.. displays an excellent voice.. nice job of modernizing a Robert Johnson feel... Promising” Blues Revue

Marty's review: Bryan Himes takes traditional blues straight from the Delta and gives his own personal touch with a vocal style that's more than reminiscent of the Delta blues men, and a slide guitar sound that wraps around your ears and makes you feel like reaching for that shot of Bourbon. He does exceptional renditions of classics like My Babe and Boom Boom plus searing electric blues on I Love Everything About You and Beautiful One, and country blues on Goin' Down South and If I Had Possession Over Judgement Day. The instrumental Passing Into the Infinite is a treat for the ears with high voltage feedback guitar travelling from left to right channels and surrounding your space with sound. An album worthy to have in your collection that will earn repeated plays.
