Jon Cleary - feature - Danielle Moir -Impact Artist Management

New Release From Jon Cleary is ‘Dyna-Mite’

'Dyna-Mite' is jazzy, bluesy, funky, fun, and out-freaking-standing. We highly recommend you get this one - yesterday. Cleary, himself, says it best, "Turn it up loud and press play to detonate…"

Crystal Shawanda Breaks Into the Blues with ‘Voodoo Woman’

'Voodoo Woman' is the first blues album by Crystal Shawanda to be released in the United States. If you're a fan of those hard-hitting female blues stars of the past, you'll be a fan of hers too. In a word, this album is exceptional.

John Clifton’s ‘Nightlife’ Is Raw and Powerful

Clifton’s band’s sound is reminiscent of classic Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Songs have those same manic tempos and wild performances, equal parts music and catharsis...

Breezy Rodio Declares ‘Sometimes the Blues Got Me’

All in all, 'Sometimes the Blues Got Me' is a substantial album. No one can ever say Bob Koester doesn't know his stuff when it comes to blues and jazz. Picking Breezy Rodio for the Delmark label was another genius move.

Boz Scaggs Gives Us Masterful ‘Out of the Blues’

Boz Scaggs conjures up drama when he sings and his delivery begs us to join him on his journey. And let us not forget that he can play intensely emotive and nimble guitar lines seemingly effortlessly.

Little Freddie King Serves Up Some ‘Fried Rice & Chicken’

For those like us who love original, intense, unvarnished blues, Little Freddie King's 'Fried Rice & Chicken' should be on your shelf. Better yet, in your player.

The Lucky Losers Triumph with ‘Blind Spot’

The Lucky Losers got tight by touring. A lot. Their website has a map of where they’ve played, and it’s got more pins dropped than a tailor riding a mechanical bull.

Michael Kaeshammer Brings Us ‘Something New’

It's not difficult to understand why Michael Kaeshammer has fans all over the globe. If you somehow missed his last release, 2016's 'No Filter', you're not going to want to miss out on 'Something New'.
