New York Blues Singer 2
This New York Blues Singer has been an active figure on the Blues music scene for some time. His work as a modern day exponent of the Blues, and R&B, has led him to recognition as a performer, teacher and recording artist. He was influenced greatly by artists such as Robert Johnson, Otis Rush, and Hubert Sumlin (who he had the pleasure of accompanying in December 2006). His own particular guitar style developed under the guidance of Blues guitarist Danny Kalb (founder of the Blues Project, a seminal Blues band of the 1960's). His reputation has been built upon well-crafted recordings and solid live solo performances and with his own Blues Band.
As a solo artist, performing the traditional country Blues, and with his band, rocking juke joints with electric blues, this New York Blues Singer has become known as a faithful, and loving interpreter of this nearly lost musical art form. In live performance, TV, radio, and on recordings, he has proved to audiences everywhere that the Blues is a vibrant and exciting form of musical entertainment!
