Brandon Bailey, in my humble opinion, is one of those rare talents. His debut recording , Memphis Grooves, is a must listen and surely proves that point: 13 cuts, 50 minutes, currently available only as a digital downloadbelow (see below for preview and purchase information.) It truly is blues for the year 2010 and beyond – combining aq familiar feel done in way that are really unique and unexpected.

Once you hear it you’ll realize Mr. Bailey does it all. With the exception of “Superstition,” where Adam Gussow joins him on harp and footdrums, every single sound on this album is something Brandon produced with his mouth, harmonica, shaker, and thumping foot. There are no sidemen here, or samples, and no more than a handful of overdubs. Using only the aforementioned props, plus a looping pedal, Brandon created almost all of these songs in the studio in real time. Incredible unto itself!
