Show # 93 - Fresh New Music
We may be still in the middle of winter for most of the country but music-wise it's already springtime. My mailbox has seen a bunch of new CDs arrive from artists that have not been featured on The Big Break before now. I'm also excited about the new CD coming out from Ruby James. Ruby was an interview guest back on episode #49 and I got to sit down with her recently to talk about her new release. That interview and many of the new tracks will be on an upcoming show.
More former "major label" artists are migrating over to the podsafe water's edge and this week I start the show off with a tune from the Black Crowes called Goodbye Daughters Of The Revolution. The band Soul Summit returns with a new song called Cold Snap
Ruby James has followed up her previous EP "Sweet As Sin" with a brand new CD that will be available in a week or so called "Desert Rose". I play the first track off the album called The Words Goodbye.
A number of new artists get airplay on this week's show, the first of which is B. J. Allen and Blue Voodoo with a funky-blues tune called Your Blues Is My Blues Now. I received the album "On A Dime" by Aaron Netsell which is packed with great blues music and strong message on how quickly events can result in a complete change in someone's life. The first track from the CD is Things Change.
The John Earl Walker Band provides us with good up-tempo blues song called Little Girl, followed by another artist that sent in his CD; this time it's Gary Segal and his song Cartwheels. We continue this set with Dirt Road by Ron Rutherford found on "Lone Wolf" CD. I always enjoy playing music from talented female blues artists and this week I get the chance to highlight the song I've Earned The Right To Sing The Blues by JoAnne Redding.
Since way back on The Big Break, episode # 14 I've had the pleasure of playing the excellent music of Martha Redbone. One of the many songs that I can listen to all day long is Talk About It.
Another band that I've not played in a while is Stone Blue and this time I've selected She's My Baby. An artist that I've added to my collection courtesy of the Radio Submit music service is I Underestimated You by Tom Hunter and the song we close out the show with from Ed Stallman called Stevie Ray.
