Tweed Funk

“Hoodoo Power” from the album First Name Lucky

Tweed Funk’s latest CD, First Name Lucky, was inspired by a recent trip to Memphis. The band wanted to create an organic album with a minimal amount of overdubs and production. Tweed Funk’s goal was to capture the energy, excitement, and raw emotive power of 7 freshly penned original tunes and 4 select covers.

“The party Tweed Funk brings to their live shows comes alive on ‘First Name Lucky’ as the band cruises through various blues and funk styles with horn-drenched ease.”– Sena Ehrhardt

Formed in late 2010, Tweed Funk has garnered national and international acclaim for their horn-driven, sweat-soaked, soul-blues. This Milwaukee, Wisconsin band is fronted by Joseph “Smokey” Holman, who recorded under Curtis Mayfield in the early 70’s. Tweed Funk boasts 3 Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) Wins for the band and it’s members.

Gaetano Letizia

“Kill My Conscience” –  from the album Voodoo Doll & Other Blues Lessons

“Guitarist/Vocalist/Writer Gaetano Letizia’s new release Voodoo Doll & Other Blues Lessons is an intensely powerful expansion of the blues that stretches the traditional forms to the breaking point in 12 highly original progressive blues tunes. Voodoo Doll combines searing blues melodies and funk rhythms with lyrics about todays’ challenges, frustrations, and victories: our blues lessons.

Just like the old blues masters dealt with passionate desire, fear, temptation and heartbreak, the tunes on Voodoo Doll travel the same path but with more relevancy to today’s crazy lifestyles. Tunes like Voodoo Doll & Kill My Conscience zero in on the price of instant gratification, while The Devil Is A Nice Guy is all about the modern age devils we all encounter at the new crossroads of technology and politics.

The “lock down” rhythm section of Steve Renko on drums and Larry Keller on bass is hard to match with driving new beats and feels on the whole project. Combined with Letizia’s screaming, roaring guitar work, Voodoo Doll is a treat for the music aficionado.”

Available on CDBaby, Itunes & Amazon, www.underworldblues.com.

Brent Johnson

“Don’t Make A Sound” from the debut album, Set The World On Fire

Brent Johnson burns up the speakers on his appropriately-titled debut CD, “Set the World on Fire” (Justin Time Records), with an incendiary mix of both electric guitar and slide guitar sounds on the album’s 11 cuts, including seven originals and covers of “Meet Me in the Morning” (Bob Dylan), “Meet Me in the Bottom” (Howlin’ Wolf), “As the Years Go Passing By” (Albert King) and “The Hucklebuck” (Paul Williams). Justin Time Records owner Jim West has been a longtime fan and gave Brent free rein over the material and production. As this is his first album release, Brent is looking forward to releasing and touring these original songs and feeling the reaction to his work from an audience.

Johnson’s passionate vocals and soulfully powerful guitar work shines throughout the new album. On “Meet Me in the Morning,” he and Alvin Youngblood Hart trades licks in a serious blues guitar conversation (Alvin on electric, Brent on slide). They go at it again on the original song, “The Ticket,” driving home a strong blues message. On “Long Way Back to New Orleans, he’s joined by Sonny Landreth, who adds his signature slide guitar, helping to push the track towards his Crescent City hometown. Hart returns one more time on the Howlin’ Wolf classic, “Meet Me in the Bottom,” where both he and Brent channel the chugging sounds made famous by the Wolf’s iconic guitarist, Hubert Sumlin..

John Lyons

“The Blues Moved In” from the album Sing Me Another Song

This is the third album by Lyons, who was raised in Michigan but has moved to Luzern, Switzerland in 2001. It is a compelling blend of rock, blues, folk, and singer/songwriter style with a major twist of the storyteller, which drives the album. As for putting a label on the album, the closest I might come would be Americana or roots music. If forced to put him in any sort of box, I would say that Lyons is an exceptional singer, songwriter and storyteller. His songs/stories are drawn from wells of personal experience, passionate and overflowing with emotional power, which stems from the fact that, hands down, John Lyons is the real deal. To call him a bluesman would be a stretch but there are enough elements of blues here that it cannot be ruled out.

Lyons is a better than average guitarist and he is backed by an exceptional band. The result is a sound the flows smoothly, is easy on the ear and had a timeless sound that will sound every bit as good and valid decades from now as it does today. Like a minstrel, somehow lost in time, Lyons weaves his stories in such a way that they wrap themselves around the listener making him feel warm and comfortable. The music of John Lyons covers so many different styles and feelings, yet they blend, leaving the listener feeling fulfilled. Elements of folk, rock, blues and even gospel make for an album that, while I cannot put a label on it, I like it. The longer I listen to the disc, the more I like what I hear. This piece is good on so many levels…all I can honestly say is that this is one of those discs’s you will find yourself coming back to time after time, never tiring of what Lyons and the band have to say. I recall hearing James Taylor’s Sweet Baby James album for the first time. While the two cannot honestly be compared, Sing Me Another Song leaves me with that same kind of timeless quality that to put it simply, will never grow old. Job well done guys! — Bill Wilson..

Johnny Cox

“Runaway Train” from the album Thin Blue Line

Blues singer, songwriter and guitarist Johnny Cox from Scotland by way of Canada let’s his soul flow through that Stratocaster, and sets the stage on fire. Inspired by many styles of music, it’s the Blues that truly drive Johnny wild. In his youth, Johnny’s appetite for Blues music was insatiable and he spent many years devoting himself to the techniques of Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Albert King, Albert Collins, Robert Cray, John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy, etc.

As time passed, Johnny began to hunger for more than being a blues guitar player. In the process of becoming ‘whole’ musically, Johnny felt compelled to start singing and writing his own material. Since that realization he’s been on a feverish journey, honing his craft and finding his home in the world of music. Johnny Cox’s debut CD, The Thin Blue Line, represents the palette of his musical personality. On this CD, he embraces many Roots styles but in his heart he’s still a junkie for the Blues; playing guitar in his sleep and bending every note.
