Josh Garrett Band Holds #1 Spot on Blues Top Five for Second Week

Josh Garrett Band - String of ProblemsThe Josh Garrett Band’s album String of Problems rose to secure the #1 spot last week, and has successfully defended it’s place for the second week on the Blues Top Five chart. The Louisiana-based band narrowly topped Blues Top Five newcomer Lee Pons and his album Big Boogie Voodoo, and the critically acclaimed Unconditional, by Ana Popovic. Franc Robert’s Why Do I Never Win moved up to the number four position, and newcomer album to the Blues Top Five’s Thirteen Shades of Blue by the Mojo Roots secured the number five position. String of Problems, recorded in Fudge Studio in New Orleans and released in August, 2011, is the band’s third. The album is an energetic dose of true Louisiana blues — with clear Zydeco and Cajun influences. You can find more on the Josh Garrett Band and pick up a copy of their #1 album at their official website.
