Trust Your Mojo Sista
Bluebird & Skoko are a buzzing combination of deep Chicago blues and dirty rock'n'roll energy guided by the spirit of Screaming Jay Hawkins, Billie Holiday, Muddy Waters, The Cramps, and all those artists inspired by the fire inside. Their music is the expression of passion for music and lust for life. They sing and play from the guts, guided by that mysterious creature called Mojo. Their first album together "Trust Your Mojo, Sista", mastered at the Abbey Road Studios, will be released in january 2009. Bluebird grew up in Chicago under the wing of the great Junior Wells. Since 1975 he has blown his harp with Chicagoans from Sammy Lawhorn to Eddy Taylor and from Phil Guy to Valerie Wellington. He jammed with Muddy Waters and opened for him for his entire 1980 Italian tour. He played with Dr. John (with whom he recorded one of his own songs), John Kalb, Bill Dicey, Alexis Korner, the Sun Ra Orchestra, and many more. In 1982, one of his songs won a platinum record in South America. His songs have been included in numerous compilations in Europe and America. Bluebird has been followed by the music press and European TV stations since the beginning. His latest version of the song "Johnny B. Goode" received five stars from independent radio stations in the USA. Skoko released three albums with her band CUT. Playing psycho rock'n'roll, they've opened for Royal Trux, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Hives, and many more. Recently she recorded the song "Watching Ya," released by the Italian record label Suoni di Jato.
