“If you cannot pay your rent – that’s The Blues …”
Howlin’ Wolf’s quote above defines The Blues more than most. The Blues are the cornerstone of popular music as we know it and it is the most enduring genre of music in it’s purest form.
Most people walking around on this planet are struggling. The elite, the Kings and Queens – oblivious to the troubles of the every-man and woman. The Blues is the music of the people. A beacon for common sense to unite and prosper from the knowledge they are not alone. Money, relationships, addictions – all part of the inner conflicts which are paraded on stages throughout the world in the form of The Blues.
