Happy 2018!

I hope your holidays were full of family, friends and love.

A few months ago, after a very successful road trip, I noted feeling so blessed that I was thinking of changing the band name to “Band of Blessed Souls!”

Well if the first two weeks of the New Year are any indication then maybe I should consider the name change again.

Let’s see –
  • A 2018 Blues Music Award nomination for Simmered & Stewed  in the Best Emerging Artist Album Category 
  • The cover & feature article in Blues Blast Magazine
  • A five-week tour that includes stops at some of my favorite venues in the Midwest, Midsouth and Florida
  • A host of gig and showcase performances during IBC week in Memphis 
  • As a Delaney endorsed artist, taking delivery on a new custom built guitar 
Feeling blessed is justified wouldn’t you say?

And that’s just January!

Upcoming I will be finishing my new album called “Memphis Song," for release later in the year. I will be appearing along with a host of my contemporaries on Mick Kolassa’s “Double Standards” album project, and I will be producing a new album for singer/songwriter Mary Ann “Scuff” Casale.

These blessings come with the support and encouragement of many – fans, DJs, venue and festival folks, blues societies, my booking and management team and my band mates. You are my friends and my family! Thank you and and will see you soon!

Tas was nominated in the Emerging Artist Best Album Category. 

Per The Blues Foundation, the explanation for this award is; That blues recording that was released during the eligibility period for an act that has not received a prior Blues Music Award or GRAMMY® award nomination. The age of the artist is not of significance, but this award is intended for an artist who is up and coming within the blues/music scene and is at the “jumping off” point of his or her career.

ALL members of the Blues Foundation can vote for the Blues Music Awards.  If you are not a member of The Blues Foundation, we encourage you join.  The base membership is ONLY $25.00.  Go HERE to join.
