Lightnin' Willie new album release.....No Black, No White, Just Blues..produced by Pete Anderson



Blues man Lightnin’ Willie has a distinctive approach to his music. The sound is an irresistible blend of tradition and spontaneous creativity, with a deliciously insidious emphasis on the groove. It is a compelling, hard swinging brand of blues that, whenever he performs, packs the floor—his audience can’t not dance. 

A guitarist of impressive facility, a vocalist of coolly stylish authority and a composer of persuasive original blues that both extend and enhance the idiom, Willie’s music has a rare individualistic quality. It is at once airy and full of open space yet also loaded with earthy, intense emotion, and as featured on his new Pete Anderson produced album, "No Black No White Just Blues," it showcases a master at the top of his game. 



Lightnin’ Willie has gone from low down beer joints to become staple on the international festival circuit, with plenty of wild stops along the way, from London’s Royal Albert Hall Ignite Series to Willie Nelson’s infamous 4th of July Picnic, where he appeared alongside Paula Nelson, Willie, Bob Dylan and Leon Russell. The always dapper Lightnin’ Willie, consistently genuine, never flashy, boundlessly entertaining, is reliably a high quality blues powerhouse who makes new fans with every performance. These attributes have won him stacks of enthusiastic praise from the international press and landed his original tunes on numerous film and television soundtracks.

Lightnin’ Willie has developed a particularly intriguing wrinkle on the genre, one that’s cool, airy, with a sinuous groove that infiltrates his audience’s consciousness, and invariably gets them up on their feet / Jonny Whiteside

Lightnin’ Willie’s music is “real,” which is one of the best compliments you can give a blues man / John Sollenberger


My approach to the Blues is simple - “I want to make people dance!” / Lightnin’ Willie

Dutch's Basement Blues Band new album release "In the Basement"...rocking boogie and blues





The first thing that hits you when you listen to this band is The Dutchman’s voice. Any description would have to include the word gravel. He also plays harmonica but the next thing that will jump out at you is the lead guitar work. Locals are still perplexed as to why a blues performer putting together a blues band would turn to an international punk-rocker famous for lighting guitars on fire to work with. Matt Roman still brings the heat with his own unique style. The result is a symbiotic team that is both energetic and entertaining. The rhythm section includes former Blues Brothers Revue bassist Adam Roberts and the intuitive drum work of blues man Pat Allen. They wrote all the material for their first CD release which includes an impressive eleven original songs.

Philadelphia blues/rock guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Greg Sover debut album "Songs of a Renegade"


Since Philadelphia’s blues/rock guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Greg Sover released his debut album, Songs of a Renegade, he has received radio support from award-winning AAA radio station WXPN, and has headlined shows at venerable listening rooms including World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, Sellersville Theater, Puck in Doylestown, PA, Steel City Coffeehouse in Phoenixville, PA and outdoor festivals including Eagleview in Exton, PA. WXPN continues to play Greg’s “Moment” and the band’s interpretation of Bill Withers’ classic “Ain’t No Sunshine.”

The power of Songs of a Renegade and Sover’s early success is due in large part to his band of three Philly veterans with extensive resumes – bassist, musical director and album co-producer Garry Lee, guitarist Allen James and drummer Tom Walling. The three are best known as Deb Callahan’s solid backing band and their cohesiveness as a unit has enabled Sover to develop as an artist and connect his music to a wider audience.

In conjunction with expanded touring in the Northeast, Greg will be adding a brand new song to his repertoire – “My City” inspired by his home in Philadelphia, which pays tribute to the streets and neighborhoods that inform his music. Always writing, Greg and the band will return to the studio for more recording in 2017.



Testimonials:
Some people were born to play the guitar. That seems to be the case with Greg Sover, who taught himself by watching videos of Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimi Hendrix starting at age 5. Backed by some of the best in Philly – Allen James, Garry Lee and Tom Walling, this is a band on the rise. “Moment,” “Déjà Vu” and their cover of “Ain’t No Sunshine” are highlights of the CD “Songs of a Renegade.” See them live in area clubs now! – Cyndy Drue, Radio Personality, WMGK, Philadelphia

Greg Sover was one of the biggest hits of my summer 2016. A clean, polished album and a nasty, guitar-heavy live show. His set at Eagleview took everyone by surprise... but knowing the A-Team involved in this project and Greg's musical abilities, it shouldn't have been. – Jesse Lundy, Talent Buyer, Point Entertainment

Greg Sover’s CD, Songs of a Renegade, lines up 9 excellent, original songs and the best cover of Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine” I have yet to hear. Greg is a must see live and is now on my list of new favorite artists! – Dawn Slade, General Manager, Sellersville Theater

Mick Kolassa and Mark Telesca new release "You Can't Do That"...Blues and The Beatles



What do you get when two blues musicians get together to celebrate their mutual love of some of the most classic songs of the 20th Century? A great new album! 

Mick Kolassa and Mark Telesca have teamed up to bring two mutual loves together: the Blues and The Beatles. This album is the kind of thing that happens when two musicians get together and decide to make some magic. They called the album “You Can’t Do That”, which refers to a great song that has the blues all over it as well as what many people told them when they said we were going to do the record: you can’t do that! 

Stream and download on iTunes HERE

..also available on Amazon and cdbaby



For many, including Mick and Mark, this music is nearly sacred, but as blues artists they find and feel the blues in everything they hear, and the blues flows through the music of the Beatles more so than it does through other forms of popular music, so uncovering it was not too difficult – but oh so pleasurable!

Jeff Jensen joined the team to produce the album and together with Mark and Mick put together some pretty fancy guitar work, and with a little help from their friends the guys got this project off the ground – way off the ground! Reworking these classic tunes into blues arrangements was a joy for the artists, who brought the Beatles into many different styles of blues – but always with acoustic arrangements, no amplifiers or pedals were used in the production of this album! Instead you’ll find resonator and multiple acoustic guitars, harmonica, trumpets, flugelhorns and even a fiddle and mandolin.

Never forget, all you need is blues!
