“The blues and blues-infused music is rooted in truth. This album is my truth.” Albert Castiglia
Mike Zito ignored the naysayers when he formed his record label. And he’s ahead of the curve with his new album ‘Blues for the Southside,’ a 17-cut live extravaganza that will blow your head off and “take you there” as the Staple Singers would say.
Recorded on November 26, 2021 at the Old Rock House in St. Louis, Missouri, and produced by Mike Zito, ‘Blues for the Southside’ showcases Zito (guitar and vocals) and his stellar band in full fury.
Pre-order ‘City Country City’ Starting September 10
‘Relish’ should definitely be in everyone’s collection. Although primarily a blues rock album, it has a little something for everybody. The combination of Dave Kalz and Gulf Coast Records is a winner!
Special Guests Include George Benson, Joe Bonamassa, Marlon Jackson, Kenny Neal, Bobby Rush and Stevie Wonder
“For me to sing songs and feel them with real emotion, they need to be somewhat personal. Even songs I did not write, I need to feel they explain a part of my thinking or how I am feeling about love, sex, life, death, the world…. ‘Resurrection’ is an album of feelings, emotions, and is very personal.” – Mike Zito
“I’ve known Dave Kalz for 30 years,” said Mike Zito in making the announcement. “He is an inspired guitarist and musician full of heart and soul.”
If you’ve been looking for some new holiday music, or some brilliantly updated classics for your Christmas soundtrack, ‘A Gulf Coast Christmas’ is it.
