Real House Blues
If Tampa Red had a white, great grandson who cut his teeth singing and playing slide guitar in the Allman Brothers band along with Robert Nighthawk, Earl Hooker, ZZ Top and the Beatles...you might get close to blues retrorevival-futurist Mojo Stu MOJO STU 'REAL HOUSE BLUES' is the feel-good CD of the year! More than just another Blues release, MOJO STU channels decades of Blues through grooves and beats so down to earth they could grow cotton on concrete! REAL HOUSE BLUES weaves a thread of Blues tradition into a much broader sonic quilt, reaching across musical genres and finding something organic, pure, and new:) MOJO STU's up-spirit reverberates through the tracks like the pulse of a freight train. The proclamations, soulful refrains, and masterful instrumentation leave you feeling better than they found you. There was a time when people danced to Blues music in juke joints, roadhouses, fish fry's, and house parties....and that's the heart of REAL HOUSE BLUES...a contemporary spin on a hundred years of Blues music. And, only an artist like MOJO STU could give a time tested wisdom to beat driven ears. Entertaining audiences from coffeehouses to concert halls, festivals and listening rooms, MOJO STU performs his unique, intense and friendly solo-acoustic music. For over twenty-five years he has shared the performance stage with music and Blues luminaries; Leon Russell, Johny Winter, Robert Cray, Dr. John, Maria Muldaur, John Hammond, Kelly Joe Phelps, Johny Neal (Allman Bros), Big Bill Morganfield (son of Muddy Water), and many others. A feature performer on the QVC Channel, MOJO STU received the highest ratings of ANY performer on their 'Jammin in the Kitchen Show', and has been featured on FOX News, WXTU 92.5 Morning Show, and created the 'Blues Expression' Radio Show with co-host Lonnie Shields WPEB 98.1 (Phila, PA). MOJO STU's love of the Blues is evident in earlier releases; GOOD GRAVY, NOT FOR NOTHIN' (with band MOJO). Proceeds from sales of all of his music benefit the PEACE, LOVE, and SUNSHINE FOUNDATION, which was founded by MOJO STU. The foudation is dedicated to helping kids by raising awareness and funds for worthy causes.
