It’s been a truly incredible summer for new Blues music, and this week’s shift inside the Home for New & Independent Blues Music strikes the perfect balance between big name new releases and truly independent artists. You’ll hear new tunes from Joe Bonamassa, JP Soars and Sugar Ray & the Bluetones; as well as listen to incredible songs off self released records from AC Myles, Doug Prescott Band and more!

There’s also a track that, at first glance, you’ll think we’ve played before. Duncan Street, following the amazing reception from Blues fans for their stripped down song “Watermelon, Barbecue & Beer,” went back into the studio and recorded a brand new mix featuring a full band, horns and backup singers. The song remains the same, but the recording is something completely new!
