    I imagine this will be a very slow and depressing thread... But do we have many blues fans on here? Modern? Older? Whats on ya radiogram now?

    I often listen to a lot of older stuff from the 40s/50s but of late I've come forward about 30+ years and have been on a real Stevie Ray Vaughan and Robert Cray kick.

    What about you?

    Do like to listen to a little Ray Charles and Cab Calloway from time to time.
    Can be both relaxing and upbeat at the same time.

    There is of course those like Gary Moore ,BB King Muddy waters , The band ,Elmore James ,Duke Ellington, The list goes on you also have to consider such groups as ZZ Top. and artists like Eric Clapton who play many genres of music but have a solid roots in the blues

    I love blues, SRV is the greatest of all time imo, Hendrix has a couple of good ones too.
    Others I like are:
    Eric Clapton
    JJ Cale
    Gary Moore
    The Allman Brothers
    Robert Randolph
    Buddy Guy
    And a young guy named Jonny Lang, Jack White (white stripes) has some really good blues stuff.
    If you're into the older stuff Taste, have you heard any Huddie "lead belly" Ledbetter?

    Quite right , that song makes the hairs on my neck stand up .Eartha Kitt also had a good set of lungs on her , those of a certain age will recall her as cat woman in BatMan

    I am an Eric Clapton fan, and have just hooked onto Gary Moore. Man, can he bang a guitar.
    Love the Clapton Crossroads DVDs, some great old, and new names on those discs.
    Robert Cray has a different voice, I like it.
    If you want some good listening, get the Eric Clapton story CDs(5 if I remember) Tells his life story, jamming with Hendricks, George Harrison etc in his younger days. Great stuff.

    oh man she is good.

    i like heaps of different music.. been listening to a bunch of country recently. alot of times these modern artists have more than
    one style they do. and as we all know Blues are roots of pretty much all music styles.

    will post a few of the artists ive been listening to, some you guys may or may not of heard b4.

    been mentioned once already it's really well worth whacking the name of an artist you like into Pandora and letting it do the rest just adjusting with likes etc.

    Shes going to get exposure at the very least.

    ______________
    Soul style - with Rnb- she has some awesome stuff
    R&B / N'dea Davenport - Underneath A Red Moon - YouTube
    modern country - great vocals.. obv a bit poppy but still like the song configuration
    Jana Kramer - "Why Ya Wanna" (Official Music Video) - YouTube
    Everlast - not much to describe his style. Has a pretty large catalogue.
    Everlast - White Trash Beautiful - YouTube
    Also Cat Power- enjoyed her Jukebox Album. Big fan of Norah Jones-
    Norah Jones - Don't Know Why (Live in Amsterdam) - YouTube

    lol, speaking of Everlast (former frontman of House of Pain)... this was sent to me awhile ago. Gave me a chuckle.

    always on the hunt for aussie/modern stuff.. found this from triple j unearthed.


    its a little bit more pop/electronic more than blues but im sure if she does some live/acoustic stuff it will be awesome.

    I'm a huge fans of blues. From John Lee Hooker right up to John Butler. George Thorogood is one of my favourites. I listen to it and play it. Alecia Keys is good. I also like slow jazz styles as well....ummm.....Diana Krall does a really good version of Cry Me a River.

    Every year here they have the Blues at Bridgetown festival, only had the chance to go a couple of times, but I really hope to make it this year. Second weekend in November.
