The Mojo Roots’ album Thirteen Shades of Blue raised for the fourth week straight, achieving #1 status in the Blues Top Five this week. The stark combination of soul, slide, harmonica prowess, and swampy Missouri blues has created a loyal and vocal fan base for the band. Bobby Messano fell to teh #2 position, while Dana Fuchs, the smokey, soulful vocal master who portrayed Sadie in the hit movie Across The Universe, made a rapid ascent up the chart, peaking at number three on the Blues Top Five this week.
The Mojo Roots’ climbed to #1 fro last week’s #2 position, while Bobby Messano, who held the #1 position for two solid weeks, dropped to #2. Dana Fuchs shot up to #3. Dynamic and wildly talented siblings Trampled Under Foot shot to the #4 position, and Ana Popovic, who has consistently proved her staying power in the top ten, secured the #5 position. Entertainingly, and in a first for American Blues Scene’s Blues Top Five, the Mojo Roots and Trampled Under Foot appeared on stage together recently.
You can find more on The Mojo Roots and pick up a copy of Thirteen Shades of Blues at the band’s official website.
