We actually don't have room for all of the great reviews!

  Dear NorthernBlues fan:

Wow! What a year 2008 has been! We've had our busiest year ever with CDs from
Samuel James, Moreland & Arbuckle, JW-Jones, Watermelon Slim, the Homemade Jamz Blues Band, Carlos del Junco, Paul Reddick, and a new sampler!
Watermelon Slim
2009 won't be nearly as busy, but it will be just as good. The big news is that we will be releasing next year
Watermelon Slim's first country music CD! Yes, country music. We took Slim to Nashville, hired the best session musicians we could find, and the results are amazing. Gary Nicholson, songwriter for Delbert McClinton, managed most of the sessions, and even co-wrote two songs with Slim. Delbert even came by for two days just watch Slim record.

Most of the songs are Slim originals with a few choice covers thrown in as well. As you would expect, many of the songs are about truck driving. Miles Wilkinson, who produced
Homemade Jamz for us, produced these sessions, and I think everybody will be impressed with the results.
Cox & Bhatt
One of our first releases of the year will be more Indian-blues fusion from
Doug Cox and Salil Bhatt. This time around, we brought in Louisiana soul/cajun singer John Boutte for the vocals. We spent a week in Ashcroft, British Columbia, recording this gem, and we all had a terrific experience! You can get a sneak preview of this CD on our current sampler - Future of the Blues, volume 3.
Homemade Jamz
We will also be going back into the studio with the
Homemade Jamz and bring you a fresh batch of original songs. They've now had a good year of touring behind them, so expect them to be even better than on their debut CD.

Am I still having fun? You bet!!! Remember, if you can't find NorthernBlues releases in your local record store, please ask for them! And tell us where you think our CDs should be found! It's always a battle to get CDs into the stores, and we can always use your help!

Fred
