I've got Samantha Fish's latest album "Black Wind Howlin" on constant play right now. Man I don't really know where to start with this young lady. Love her guitar work, love her voice, and love her songs. She is new and fresh, and I'm sure she will have a long storied career because she is coming out of the gate smoking hot.
She is a very talented singer, songwriter and blues guitarist, hope to see more good stuff from her in the future.

Lately I've been checking out more of the Grammy nominated Gospel acts out there. According to Wiki;
Tyrone "Tye" Tribbett (born January 26, 1976) is an American gospel music singer, songwriter, keyboardist, choir director and founder of the Grammy-nominated and Stellar-Award winning gospel group Tye Tribbett & G.A. (short for 'Greater Anointing.')I really enjoy the energy that this song has.

Spent the morning listening to a new Moanin' at Midnight: The Howlin' Wolf Project
by the Tomas Doncker Band. And I have to say it is good stuff. I really like their rendition of Howlin Wolf's "Spoonful".
This band is exactly the kind of music that I enjoy listening to, they are rooted in traditional blues music, but are also pushing the boundaries and not just kicking out the same old sound. This band does Traditional Blues, Psychedelic Blues, Soul, and I think I hear some Reggae/World Music influences in there. And it is all done with style and skill.
Check out this video of their song "Shook Down" which was co-written by the legendary Pulitzer Prize winning poet Yusef Komunyakaa. I also love the harmonica being played in this video.
