Praise for "Blues In My Blood"
"Never falling into shoe gaze self indulgence even when wailing, well, the blues, this is a killer debut that raises the roof beams all night long. Hot stuff throughout that's grab you hard." --Chris Spector , "Midwest Records"
"The production choices by Grammy Award producer Jack Miele, and clever chord changes inside of a traditional blues vibe, create a tasteful blend of old versus new stylings.
Blues In My Blood” is a recommended listen. It hits all the marks – good songwriting, solid production without distracting the listener, excellent singing, beautiful guitar work, and rock solid musicianship all around.
