Bobby Messano’s album That’s Why I Don’t Sing The Blues shot up the Blues Top Five chart to secure the #1 spot this week, easily besting the Josh Garrett Band’s String Of Problems, which fell to number 5 after a two week run at #1. The Grammy-nominated Bobby Messano has just released That’s Why, his fifth contemporary blues album, in July to critical acclaim.
The Mojo Roots’ Thirteen Shades of Blue climbed to #2 from being in the #5 position last week, and critically acclaimed blues pianist Lee Pons secured the #3 position, his third week on the chart. Low Society, a newcomer to the top five, showed their popularity by quickly rising to secure the #4 position with their album High Time.
