Music of Empty Streets

We're very honored to announce the involvement of two Blues musicians who have generously given us music. Both are rooted in the soul, fire, spirit and passion that is the Blues. First off we have Jimbo Mathus, who has arranged and produced albums, and toured with the likes of Buddy Guy and Elvis Costello, not to mention the Squirrel Nut Zippers. Jimbo is a generous man, humble with his time and always willing to share with us as an artist. We're very excited to have him on board.

Next is a Bluesman from the old school named Charlie Musselwhite. He played in clubs with Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Paul Butterfield, Michael Bloomfield and has shared the stage with Etta James, BB King, James Cotton and Elvin Bishop. He's a kind, gentle soul that flat-out wails on the harp. The special treat is that Mr. Musselwhite gave us use of a song titled "Blues for John Lee." On this track Musselwhite plays acoustic guitar and it was a song he composed for his late friend John Lee Hooker.

Check out these two Web sites so you can experience these guys' music and see them live.
