Listen: Episode 1613

The Easter holiday gave us a perfect layover to stack up a healthy selection of new Blues CDs in our mailbox. This week features several of those albums, beginning with the title track off the new album by Janiva Magness. Love Wins Again is available now, and you can Click Here to Listen to my archived interview with Janiva Magness! From there, we hear a ton of great new Blues releases, including music by Guy King. Scroll below this week’s playlist to watch a video of Guy in the studio discussing his new album, Truth, and a seocnd video for his new song, “My Happiness.”

The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “Driver’s Wheel” by Steve Dawson. Steve is a Vancouver native, who has since relocated to Nashville, Tennessee. For this new album, he assembled a full band, and incorporated many traditional Roots music styles into his Blues. It is a stark contrast to his stripped down, instrumental album released in 2014. The new set is available digitally, on CD, or on 180 gram double vinyl LP! You can purchase the vinyl, learn more about Steve Dawson, and listen to his new podcast on his official website – SteveDawson.ca
