Plaehn and Hino feature an acoustic and acoustic/electric blend of country blues, R&B, originals that center around the classic sound of the blues harp and National Steel guitar. Dave Plaehn and Jeff Hino have been performing their own distinct blend of acoustic and electric blues, folk, and original material since 1990. At their core, Plaehn and Hino explore the uncluttered powerful interplay of blues harmonica, National steel slide guitar, and vocals in the tradition of bluesmen like Robert Johnson, Slip Harpo and Elmore James.A typical Plaehn and Hino set features traditional blues, originals and contemporary and creative interpretations of current artists like Taj Mahal, Sonny Landreth and John Mayall. But Dave and Jeff can just as easily surprise the audience with the high and lonesome sound of a country blues gospel song.

Early in 2000, the Canadian blues expert Johnny V recorded an album in Riga together with the Latvian Blues Band, and that was followed by a major concert tour of Canada that stretched from Toronto all the way to Calgary. This is seen as the beginning of the band’s career. The Latvian Blues Band has appeared in the United States, Canada, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, Russia, Belarus, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Croatia, Italy, Spain, Greece, Denmark, Norway,  as well as Egypt Uzbekistan and Romania. In 2004, the legendary guitarist and blues expert Bob Margolin published an article about the LBB as a European blues phenomenon in the world’s leading blues magazine, Blues Revue. In 2005, the LBB received the Thropees France Blues nomination as the best blues band in Europe. A particular honour was the invitation to appear at the Chicago Blues Festival, where the LBB was the first European-based band in the festival’s history. During the Chicago Blues Festival in 2008, the LBB toured a number of blues clubs in Chicago. In early 2009, the LBB issued its first studio album, Unreal. The producer was one of today’s most outstanding guitarists, Duke Robillard. The album received an excellent review from music reviewer Art Tipaldi in Blues Revue. Tipaldi is also chairman of the Keeping the Blues Alive foundation. Also in 2009, the LBB won the Baltic Blues Challenge in the German town of Eutin, thus winning a spot at the International Blues Challenge 2010 finals in Memphis, Tennessee. For more than a quarter-century, the challenge has been organised by the world’s umbrella organisation for the blues, the Blues Foundation. In April 2010, the band released their second album with 14 original compositions. This album was produced by band members Janis Bukovskis and Rolands Saulietis, with B-3 organist Raphael Wressnig appearing as a guest artist. The release of the album coincided with a special concert that the band presented to celebrate its 10th anniversary. The anniversary concert was released on DVD and CD. In 2013, the Latvian Blues Band released Latvian Blues Band & Friends Live at the Dream Factory 2013, which received a local Golden Microphone award as the best jazz/blues album. In January 2015, the LBB once again took part in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, gaining much attention and recognition from organisers, representatives of major US blues associations, as well as audiences. This year the band is celebrating its 15th anniversary and is continuing to perform actively in Latvia, Scandinavia and elsewhere in Europe. In 2017, Latvian Blues Band started It’s own international festival – R’n’B Blues Festival

Guitarist/singer/songwriter, Silver Bridge Recording blues artist Chris Bell was born in Washington, D.C. and raised in Massachusetts, and credits both his parents for introducing him to blues, jazz, rhythm & blues and gospel music. At the early age of nine, he picked up his first guitar and discovered his passion. During the 1980's, while majoring in art and music at the University of Massachusetts, Chris participated in jazz workshops with Archie Shepp, attended a summer session at Berklee School of Music, and studied under guitar great Tony MacAlpine. In 1990, Chris relocated to Los Angeles to further develop his musical career, and in 2000, went back to his roots and formed what is known today as Chris Bell & 100% Blues.
Having always been influenced by some of the great blues artists both past and present from B.B. King’s swingin’ old school style, to stinging single note passages like masters Albert King and Albert Collins, combined with searing slide riffs from Bell’s favorite Johnny Winter, and the psychedelic sounds reminiscent of the master Jimi Hendrix, Chris can do it all. His remarkable guitar playing compliments any blues genre he covers while paying tribute to those vintage styles his forefathers cast before him. Since his first release of “Blues 2001", followed by “Hell Is Too Hot For Me”,  “Real Bluesman”,  “The Devil, My Guitar & Me” and more. 
He continues to tour throughout the Western United States with regular trips each year to the East Coast, the Midwest and Texas. Chris is establishing himself as one of the premier up and coming blues artists of this generation and has only begun to scratch the surface of what promises to be a long and prosperous career.

Blues and country music share much in common. One of the hallmark features of both genres is that they tell stories. What would the blues (or country) be without tales of cheating partners, dire finances, the relief found in someone else’s bed or at the bottom of a bottle? Bluesman Mike and the Blues Review Band, longtime performers in the Phoenix area, find themselves in top form and Knee Deep Into These Blues. Their fourth self-produced album features thirteen tracks (four originals and nine covers) with robust instrumentation and storytelling power. Their music has a lot of soulful flavor, like a hearty fall stew or a good book. It’s comfort food that fills you up. Some of the tunes run to the jazzy side of blues, but that’s no flaw if you like Delbert McClinton and similar artists. This CD’s emotion and intensity are nicely mixed with classic style. Over the years, bands morph into various incarnations. This one features Rob Thompson on keyboards, who also had performed with national act Bobby Womack, along with Bluesman Mike’s new lead guitar player Sugar Bear – another veteran from Philadelphia who had performed with Billy Paul. TJ Henry stars on rhythm and lead guitar, and Tim Robinson on drums, accompanying his son Daniel and the late, great Koko Taylor. Bobby Nealy, who performed with Archie Bell and the Drills, also plays keyboard. Bob Corritore takes the stage on harmonica, Doc. Donald Boles on even more keyboards, Shawn Behanna on horn arrangements, and Bryan Kuban on bass. Bluesman Mike and company launch into Bobby Rush’s “I’m Good as Gone” to start things off with a bang. The title track is a sizzling blues shuffle with terrific sound all around and a slightly autobiographical vibe: “I’ve seen the good, the bad, the ugly and more, trying to make things right. You’ve got me knee deep into these blues.” Special guest Bob Corritore heats things up on harp during “Pain,” another original composition. The keyboards are lovely as well, like falling rain on an autumn evening, and the bassline thumps ominously. “Back Door Man” is one of those uncanny original songs that you’ll swear you’ve heard before, but you probably haven’t. Its subject is familiar, its style funky, and its atmosphere fun. It features the most killer bassline since “You Can Call Me Al” by Paul Simon in 1986. Several smooth covers follow, including “Evil” by Koko Taylor, “I’m a Good Man” by Quintus McCormick and “Born Under a Bad Sign” by William Bell. “My New Cadillac,” the final original, closes the CD in groovy fashion. Knee Deep Into These Blues tells timeless tales, perfect for savoring on longer, darker nights!

Canadian singer and guitarist Terra Lightfoot turns in a set of songs incorporating timeless influences from above and below the border on her fourth studio album, Consider the Speed, set to drop later this month. For the album’s title track, Lightfoot recorded at Memphis’ hallowed Royal Studios with a group of session players who have lent their chops to tracks by artists like Buddy Guy, Kris Kristofferson, Keith Richards and more. Some of the great soul and blues records were recorded at Royal. “Oh man, it was all vibe at Royal,” Lightfoot said. “Everything there has a rich history. I got used to all the beautiful little idiosyncrasies that have helped make so many records in that place. It’s guided by a no-bullshit approach to making music. We didn’t go to tape or anything, just into the board at Royal, then did some overdubs in Toronto. But my vocals were mostly sung into that beautiful #9 microphone that Al Green made all his hits with.”
Before she had the material for Consider the Speed, Lightfoot travelled to Nashville after a couple grueling years on the road, and she said it was just what she needed to find some songwriting inspiration. “I remember being creatively stuck one night,” she continued. “No songs were coming to me. So I went out for a drive and nearly ran into two horses in the middle of Franklin Pike, which is basically a mini-rural-highway in Nashville. Cars were speeding by them, this mother and this little foal, and nobody was stopping to help. Naturally, I got out and tried to corral them or figure out where they were from – basically, to do anything to keep them from running out into the road again.”  “Eventually they fled into the darkness and I lost track of them,” she said. “But seeing those horses really stirred something in me and got me right out of my head and out of that writer’s block. The beauty of them appearing in the night, seemingly only to me, on a busy highway … it almost felt like a sign, that I should stop taking everything so seriously, because what really mattered was right in front of me. A few days later, I finished about half of the songs for the record.” The artists Lightfoot said she finds inspirational include an assortment jazz, rock, Americana and blues singers and players. “I love the richness in the voices of Nina Simone, Leon Russell, and Chet Baker. As a guitar player I love Freddie King, Bonnie Raitt, Junior Kimbrough, and Marc Bolan, and for songwriting I love John Prine. Emily Burgess is a fantastic up-and-coming Canadian guitarist, and I’m totally in love with Frazey Ford’s newest record!”
Not a lot of players use one almost exclusively, but Lightfoot’s signature guitar sound comes from her mainstay 1972 Gibson SG Standard, Veronica. “Oh yeah, that’s my main guitar,” Lightfoot said. “I’ve been playing that guitar since I was 17, and I’ve banged it up pretty badly, lost it and found it again countless times, even when I left it briefly in an alleyway in downtown Montreal. In some ways, it’s an extension of me, an integral part of my sound and a part of who I am. My fingers just seem to find all the right places when I play it, and it just feels good.” “My aunt Theresa,” she continued, “who has spent most of her life gigging, just gave me her 1971 Telecaster as she doesn’t play much anymore. I played a couple different really beautiful Telecasters on the record that I borrowed from friends, so it’s sort of a happy coincidence that now I can get acquainted with my new Tele to start playing these songs live.” An automatic assumption regarding Lightfoot is that she must be a relative of another Canadian musician, the legendary singer/songwriter Gordon Lightfoot, who scored big on the American charts several decades ago with hits like “Sundown” and “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.” But that would be wrong.
“We’ve played on the same stages on various occasions,” she said, “but not toured together. I vividly remember meeting him for the first time at Daniel Lanois’ Harvest Picnic about seven or eight years ago. He said, ‘Oh, you’re the other Lightfoot. So, are we related?’ The guy is a laugh a minute. Since then, I’ve done a few gigs with him here and there, most recently one where my parents got to meet him backstage, which I truly loved, it was a really special day. My poor dad has been getting confused for Gordon Lightfoot ever since I became a musician, so I think it meant the world to him to meet the man behind all those great songs.”
