Balkun Brothers - Devil On TV

Hartford CT, USA blood brother power-duo, Balkun Brothers, bring you their latest hard hitting release “Devil On TV”. This self produced collection of 10 tracks showcases their appetite for heavy, blues soaked rock'n'roll riffs with doses of steamy funk grooves and back porch stomp boogie. Take the trip as you weave through psychedelic sound-scapes alongside rivers of fiery guitar from front man Steve Balkun, and mountains of soul-quaking drums from younger brother Nick Balkun. With a power mightier than a choir of fallen angles, the two brothers conjure up a sound that could shake even the devil's evil spirit to the core. Turn the dial and tune in, but beware of the Devil On TV!

Watermelon Slim - Golden Boy

When one sees America in mental and social disarray, rebel poets always rise out of the woodworks. The weathered and shattered face of this outlaw is telling the story of his life: Vietnam veteran, blue collar worker, 18-wheel trucker, socialist activist. Now based in the Mississippi Delta, he paid his dues singing his mixture of Blues and Americana in juke-joints and honky-tonks across the country. His lyrics combine a staggering sense of poetry and deep social consciousness and his moving voice conveys the soul of the real America.

Eric Bibb - Migration Blues

With Migration Blues Eric Bibb reminds us that if we look at the history of the world we discover that we all have migrants among our ancestors. Eric also draws a parallel between the former African American sharecroppers leaving the brutal segregation and economic misery of the rural South for the industrial cities of the North and the current migratory movement to Europe of the refugees from the war-torn countries of the Middle East and Africa.

This album features a trio comprised of Eric and two stellar guests: JJ Milteau (harmonica) and Michael Jerome Browne (guitar, fiddle, banjo…) and, occasionally, a few more classy performers.

Migration Blues will certainly be considered one of Eric Bibb’s major albums due to the high quality of the songwriting, the raw emotion delivered by Eric’s voice, the richness of the orchestration (despite its sobriety) and the seriousness and topicality of its main theme.

Duke Robillard - Blues Full Circle

“This album really does represent a full circle of blues for me. Eight of the tunes are new compositions and three tunes here represent songs I wrote as much as 30 to 45 years ago when I was leader and front man for the original Roomful of Blues in the 1970s. We hope you enjoy our back to the basics approach to the music here. Just straightforward small band, old school blues.” - Duke Robillard

Six time ‘Blues Award’ winner Duke Robillard is one of the most respected blues and roots music guitarists working today. Guests on Blues Full Circle include Jimmie Vaughan, Sugar Ray Norcia and Kelley Hunt. Robillard has worked with Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Roomful Of Blues, Fabulous Thunderbirds and dozens of blues legends.
