Various Artists (from the album Tell Everybody: 21st Century Juke Joint Blues from Easy Eye Sound available on Easy Eye Sound)
It’s a new dawn, and the soundtrack to the sunrise is courtesy Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound record label. Recipients of the 2022 Billboard award for Blues Label of the Year, Easy Eye Sound has taken on the mission of bringing 21st Century Blues to the globe, utilizing the music of master Bluesmen and up-and-coming youngbloods, acoustic finger-picking to rip-up-the-floor electric Blues that rocks. Tell Everybody: 21st Century Juke Joint Blues from Easy Eye Sound opens with the music of R.L. Boyce and the raggedy force of ”Coal Black Mattie”, the song smoldering on swaying acoustic Blues while the image of Louisiana’s Robert Finley as the singer slowly brings the Tell Everybody title track to life on a building of Blues rhythms and riffs.
The late Glenn Schwartz was Cleveland Blues ground zero. Glenn was the original guitarist for James Gang prior to Joe Walsh joining the band. In 2016, Glenn Schwartz recorded at Easy Eye Sound with his longtime band The Arcs with Joe Walsh joining in for the stomping Blues of “Daughter of Zion” the unreleased cut included on Tell Everybody. Mississippi elder Bluesmen, Jimmy ‘Duck’ Holmes and Leo ‘Bud’ Welch offer music on the compilation alongside the spooky Blues of newcomers The Moonrisers (“Tall Shadow”) and the electric guitar of street busker Gabe Carter (“Anything You Need”. Label head honcho Dan Auerbach shares music on Tell Everybody both with his band The Black Keys on “No Lovin” and solo in the ethereal psychedelic Blues of “Every Chance I Get (I Want You in the Flesh)”.
