This weeks interview is with Danish blues singer Thorbjørn Risager. If you’ve never heard Thorbjorn Risager & the Black Tornado’s you’re in for a real treat because these guys are GREAT.  Their CD is called Too Many Roads and it SHOULD be getting a lot of airplay.  They have their own blues style which at times goes into a little fifties blues rock, R&B, and a little jazz.  They already have quite a few CD’s out but now that they have signed with the German blues label Ruf Records we should be hearing a lot more from this very talented band.

394 – Linsey Alexander – Come Back Baby

by A1 Mark on December 4, 2014

I’m very happy to get to do another interview with Linsey Alexander. His first CD on Delmark Records was called Been There Done That and it was a great CD.  This time out Linsey Alexander has done even better, which I really didn’t think could be done. Come Back Baby has only two covers the rest are originals by Linsey. The songs are upbeat blues with good lyrics and wow can Linsey play that guitar. Come Back Baby is definitely in the running for Blues CD of the Year.

This time out I’ll be interviewing Hurricane Ruth about her new powerful CD Born on the River. This is one of those CDs the first time you listen to it you can’t believe that every song is so good. This is only her second CD and already she’s writing all these cool songs.  I also need to send a little praise out to Hurricane Ruth’s guitarist ,David Lumsden, for doing such a good job on the guitar.

This weeks interview is with Devon Allman. We will be talking about Royal Southern Brotherhood’s CD HeartSoulBlood and about Devon’s new solo CD Ragged & Dirty.  You will be hearing songs from both of the CD’s but the song that will be knocking everyone out is “Midnight, Lake Michigan”. This just may be a classic.
