4 - HOLIDAY, TONY - PORCH SESSIONS VOLUME 2 - (CD) 
BLUE HEART


Originally a guitarist, Salt Lake City, Utah native Tony Holiday didn't pick up a harmonica until age 29, at the encouragement of John Nmeth. Years later, Nmeth's influence inspired Holiday to relocate to the heart of musical magic and join him as a resident of Memphis, Tennessee. Ironically, that discussion took place at none other than Nmeth's front porch, adding to the reasons that front porches are especially significant for Tony Holiday. Not only does he enjoy the cozy informality of making music on them, he's done some outstanding recording on those porches too. Studios simply aren't a necessity for the blues harmonica wailer when he's ready to lay some sounds down for posterity. He just meets his friends on their front porches, sets up his portable recording equipment, and gets down to business without the constraints of being inside a professional studio environment.

TRACKLISTING: 01. She's Tough 02. Honey Bee 03. Change Is Inevitable 04. Recipe For Love 05. Smokestack Lightnin' 06. Going To Court 2 07. Go 08. Every Day I Have The Blues 09. Brazilian Brothel 10. Bad Bad Girl 11. Find Me When The Sun Goes Down 12. That's How I Learned 13. Cake Walk 14. Family Tree 15. Peace Will Come 16. Get Outta Here

5 - JAMES, TERESA -& THE RHYTHM TRAMPS- - ROSE COLORED GLASSES VOL.1 - (CD) 
BLUE HEART


Teresa James was born and raised in Houston, Texas where she was introduced to music at an early age by her father and grandfather, both guitar players in the old school tradition. She starting playing piano at 5 and hasn't stopped since. Called a singer's singer by many, when the SAG Singer's Committee got together to honor composer Randy Newman, Teresa was chosen as the soloist to perform his favorite song to him. Relocating to Los Angeles in the 80's, her band, the Rhythm Tramps, is made up of world class players that have toured or recorded with such artists as Eric Burdon & the Animals, Bonnie Raitt, Delbert McClinton, Jimmy Reed, Lightin' Hopkins, Jimmy Vaughan, Johnny Nash, Smokey Robinson, Tom Jones, Tower of Power, and their songs have been recorded by many other artists. As one critic said, "there are no clichs in this band". They move easily through Texas style grease and blues into Memphis soul or New Orleans flavored grooves and all points in between with fun and abandonment. In addition to having toured all over N. America and Europe, she has been one of the featured acts on Delbert McClinton's Sandy Beaches Cruise for over 20 years.

8 - MURRAY, KATHY & THE KILOWATTS - HIGH VOLTAGE - (CD) 
BLUE HEART


A singer songwriter par excellence, for decades Murray has helped keep a spotlight on the Texas capital's music scene. She cut her teeth during the golden era of Austin's blues and R&B, sharing the stage with the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, the Fabulous Thunderbirds and blues godfather W.C. Clark. Murray is both a big-voiced blues singer and a prolific songwriter with a strong modern perspective. Throughout her professional evolution, the blues has been the foundation of Murray's music and songwriting, though she's never been a one-trick pony. "My sound encompasses the influences of all of Texas' regional musical styles that I've been immersed in all my life: blues, country, swamp pop, zydeco, soul, and rockabilly", she says. "I believe I'm helping take American blues and roots music into the future by writing new songs propelled by the styles that have inspired me." Recently, along with co-songwriters Christoffer 'Kid" Andersen, Rick Estrin and Frank Bey, Murray wrote the title cut on Frank Bey's album, "All My Dues Are Paid", posthumously nominated for "Best Traditional Blues Album" in the recent 63rd Grammy Awards, and for "Song of the Year" in the 2021 Blues Music Awards. Murray received the 2003 "Songwriter of the Year" award from the Australian Blues Music Awards and was awarded two Silver Medals from the 2018 Global Music Awards.

9 - ROGERS, SKYLAR - FIREBREATHER - (CD) 
BLUE HEART


kylar Rogers was born and raised in some of Chicago's toughest neighborhoods. She learned at an early age that music brought people together and grew up listening to music her mother (a singer herself) was listening or singing to. This upbringing laid the groundwork, giving Skylar the drive and passion to explore a career in music. Skylar's "Soul Rockin' Blues" sound has been influenced by Tina Turner, Etta James, Billy Joel, and Koko Taylor. Throw in a bit of AC/DC and multiple Motown artists and you have the unique, strong, passionate and energetic Skylar Rogers. Music and faith were primary sources of strength and inspiration for Skylar through not only the bad times (abusive relationships, the stillbirth of her child, and a brief period of homelessness following a divorce), but also the best of times (meeting, dating and marrying her second husband, and sharing precious time with her family and friends.) "I have learned that during these times, there was a song for every emotion. Music survives the worst, and celebrates the best." Skylar successfully launched her debut EP, "Insecurities" and began touring nationally in 2019, including performances at St Louis' National Blues Museum and Beale Street in Memphis. She was personally invited by Kevin Burt to perform in the All-Star Blues Jam at Las Vegas' Big Blues Bender in 2019. At the same venue, blues artist Erica Brown (Cast Iron Queens) was floored by Skylar's rendition of Koko Taylor's 'I'm A Woman,' telling her, "You're one of the few people I've heard to do that song justice!" She has also shared a stage with Ms. Zeno "The Mojo Queen," Tab Benoit, Terrie Odabi, and Ben Rice. Quoting Annika Chambers, 2019 Blues Music Award winner, Vizztone recording artist, "Skylar Rogers has a lot of energy and pizzazz, and brings a raw honesty to every performance. The blues world betta look out!"

14 - TUCKER, JOHNNY -& KID RAMOS & THE ALL STARS- - 75 AND ALIVE - (CD) 
BLUE HEART


Born in Fresno, California, Johnny Tucker picked cotton and cut grapes as a member of a huge sharecropping family of 18. He got his start singing along with his father, who played guitar and sang in a low, talking style. Also drawn to percussion, Tucker played a mean set of pots and pans, even getting his first gig playing them! Before long, he graduated to a real drum set and his father gave the ultimatum of choosing either cotton or music, but not both. Tucker chose music, and would bring home his earnings from the local roadhouse to help support the large family. A move to Los Angeles in 1964 created new in opportunities to expand his performing skills. After meeting James Brown in Nashville in 1965, Tucker tried to sign everything Brown put out, and did that with his band for years. His big break came when veteran blues guitarist Phillip Walker (Clifton Chenier) brought him into his band on drums. Walker's wife, Bea, taught Tucker a lot about singing and Walker taught him the music business. He remained with Walker for decades, valuable for his drumming and ability to sing harmonies at the same time. Tucker played drums and sang harmony on parts of Phillip's acclaimed album, The Bottom of the Top, notably on a 1970 remake of Walker's classic '59 Elko rocker "Hello My Darling." It wasn't until 1997 that Tucker made his recording debut as a front man. He and James "Broadway" Thomas shared a 1997 disc, Stranded, on the HMG label that was co-produced by Bruce Bromberg and the singers themselves. Then he met HighJohn Records president Auerbach, a restaurateur by trade whose father, Art Auerbach, ran San Francisco's famous Jazz Workshop during the '50s and '60s, at the Long Beach Blues Festival.
