"1920's & 1930's blues has been my daily soundtrack for the last 10 years. I was especially passionate about the more obscure stuff. I wanted to dig into and understand every detail from those scratchy 78’s. This record is a selection of songs I wanted to explore more deeply. My intention was to preserve the song as it is, though I inevitably added a personal touch while tryin’ to pay tribute to those old bluesmen. This is my way of trying to keep these tunes alive so that more people can get to know them. This picture was taken during my rehearsal days in the countryside of Spain where I spent some time and found the inspiration I needed.

Recorded in Barcelona 2017, using an old RCA 44 ribbon mic and a tube pre-amp. My May-Bell parlor guitar and a 12-string Stella. "


"He's one of few contemporary voices that really mirrors pre-war blues, the way it use to be sung and played. Tradition is respectfully carried on and nourished, all in one movement. It's sincere, well crafted and uncompromized. His expression of blues music seems to have grown into a rare hybrid. Like a vine growing off his body, altering the human anatomy and which only thrives with the ones who know it. Blues all up in your food, blues all up in your shoes. Blues which eventually makes you walk and talk in a certain way, and sit as if he always had a guitar on his lap. His expression entertains, makes one giggle and sometimes weep for life's bittersweet absurdities. He most definitely spent his days living and learning the songs he plays, which provides depth and undoubted beauty to his music. To me, he seems to embrace whatever is up ahead. A blues that describes the paradox ventures of existence without necessarily trying to control it." Måna Rezaijoff Skalleberg

El Blues de 1920 y 1930 ha sido mi banda sonora diaria en estos últimos 10 años. Especialmente apasionado por el blues mas desconocido, he querido profundizar y entender cada pequeño detalle de esos viejos discos de pizarra rayados. Este disco es una selección de algunas de las canciones que he querido explorar mas profundamente. Mi intención, en todo momento, fue la de preservar la canción tal cual es, sin olvidar el "inevitable" toque personal que se da al rendir homenaje a aquellos viejos "Bluesmen". Esta es mi manera de intentar mantener las canciones vivas, y así puedan llegar a mas personas. Esta fotografía fue tomada en mis días de ensayo en el campo, donde pasé algún tiempo y encontré la inspiración necesaria.


"Es una de las pocas voces contemporáneas que realmente hace justicia al blues que se hizo antes de la II guerra mundial, de la manera que solía ser cantado y tocado. La tradición es respetuosamente transportada y nutrida en un mismo movimiento. Bien hecho y sin compromiso. Su expresión del blues parece haberse desarrollado como un hibrido extraño. Como una planta trepadora saliendo de su cuerpo, alterando la anatomía humana y prosperando únicamente en aquellas personas que de verdad lo sienten. Blues en tu comida, blues en tus zapatos, blues que te hace caminar o hablar de una forma concreta. Su expresión entretiene y hace reír o llorar por los momentos absurdos, agridulces de la vida. Definitivamente, ha pasado sus días viviendo y aprendiendo las canciones que toca, aportando profundidad y una indudable belleza a su música. A mi parecer, él abraza lo que sea que se le ponga delante. Un blues que describe las paradójicas aventuras de la existencia sin necesariamente tratar de controlarlas." Måna Rezaijoff Skalleberg
