Blues Women International- Hopson Sessions Live
First Historic International Blues Women recording in Clarksdale Mississippi.
We are excited to announce the release of the first ever international all women -all original material- live recording with all women back up musicians. The digital release will be Wed 24 April 2013 and the Physical CD release will be on 9 May 2013 at the Blues Music Awards.
This selection of songs encompasses a multitude of genres with roots music from Country, Jazz, Roots, Rock and Roll and Blues. Even the songs subject matters written by these women are tales only women can tell. From stories of crazy boyfriends, making love to their baby under the moon and houses burning down, make it a selection of blues storytelling in the long tradition of the blues. Women have their own stories to tell, and they sing the blues in their own way, and this new release demonstrates that. We have blues from Canada, Australia and many states across the country. Each one tells a different story with a different flair.
15 blues women from all over the world gathered to record, amongst them are Clarksdale Mississippi native Jacqueline Nassar, first Robert Johnson achievement award. Australian Jazz diva Dee Dee Lavell, whose current cd has received rave reviews in the Jazz Times. Canadian blues artist Sunday Wilde whose current release hit the top five on Sirius XM Radio on BB King’s Bluesville. Minnesota Native Americans Joni and Alex Buffalohead, who are the front singers for award winning (NAMMY) Native American blues band Bluedog. This is just an example of the world class blues women that are involved in this new recording.
The recording is Live from the Clarksdale Crossroads in the Hopson Commissary, where long time blues artists such as Pinetop Perkins resided, worked and played.
This is the first project of the new grassroots organization to assist women blues artists around the world.
