This week’s shift inside the home for new & independent Blues music adopted an unintentional theme. When work began on this episode, it started like any other; but as I started to flesh out the show, it became clear that most of the artists featured draw on a wide spectrum of genre influences and frame their Blues around these diverse styles. You’ll hear Folk, Gospel, Country, Rock and Soul standing shoulder to shoulder in the songs, this week. You’ll also hear music from top names like Eden Brent, Bob Dylan, Jorma Kaukonen and Johnny Winter.

The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “Reason To Bleed,” the title track from California-based duo My Own Holiday. The young pair play Rock music that has a distinct Blues influence. The album Reason To Bleed features 13 original songs and it is available now from Delta Groove Music subsidiary Eclecto Groove Music. You can find out more information on the band’s Official Facebook Page.
