"Winter Hill blues" (Spring 2022)

This album has been nearly ten years in the making, with material that was written and refined on stages across Europe, before I began traveling to Mississippi to learn more about the Bentonia style of blues with Jimmy "Duck" Holmes. The music was recorded in Memphis by acclaimed producer Bruce Watson (Fat Possum/Big Legal Mess/Bible & Tire Records) with a stellar backing band that includes drummer George Sluppick (Albert King, Chris Robinson Brotherhood) and Mark Edgar Stuart (Alvin Youngblood Heart).

"Winter Hill Blues" will be released in spring 2022 with promotional support from Nick Loss-Eaton Media, who has already secured a premiere for the debut single "Down So Long" at American Blues Scene.

CDs and cassettes are currently available for pre-order (below), along with a list of exclusive, personalized, one of a kind rewards.

Your kindness and the community that comes with it will help me bring this music out into the world. Thank you!
