CLARKSDALE, MS — Legendary singer-songwriter Watermelon Slim’s 12th album Bull Goose Rooster, set for release on NorthernBlues Music on June 25, is an expansive masterpiece that stretches his deep blues-based roots in a multitude of directions. The disc’s 16 songs, most buoyed by the powerful sound of his reunited veteran touring and recording band the Workers, delve into the worlds of Chicago, Delta and Hill country blues, country, rock and folk. And they bristle with Slim’s sheer artistic command of all of those genres.
“I promised myself that I would make this the best and biggest album I’ve ever made,” Slim explains. “At the bottom of it all, I’m a bluesman. I started playing and writing songs because I was interested in playing blues, but when I perform I play all kinds of music that came out of the American South. In the interest of reflecting that, the 16 songs on Bull Goose Rooster comprise my broadest, most ambitious recording to date.” Read more
Serbian-born Ana Popovic, one of the most lauded blues guitarists on the circuit, moved to Memphis to capture the cities’ greasy Stax sound, record at Ardent Studios, and play with its finest musicians. Her new LP ‘Can You Stand The Heat’ is out April 16th. A passionate student of the blues, this is equally inspired by Albert King and WAR. She belts from the gut and shreds her Strat…in a pair of high heels.
‘Can You Stand The Heat’ is the follow-up to Ana’s 2011 album, ‘Unconditional,’ which was nominated for two Blues Music Awards and landed in the top 15 of Guitar World’s top Blues and Roots Rock Albums. ‘Heat’ was co-produced by long-time BB King drummer Tony Coleman, GRAMMY-winner Tommy Sims and Ana.
