It is well known that culture influences music

 

Whether you realize it or not, the blues is the foundation of nearly all the most popular styles of music listened to today. The blues isn’t just about the blues . . . Jazz, Rock, Country, Soul, R&B, Funk, and even SKA all descended from, developed out of, or were influenced by the blues. The blues has served as the backbone of all these styles and probably for many styles yet to come. The musical genre known as the blues is difficult to define, but you know it when you hear it: a simple chord progression, a deep bass line, and lyrics that evoke wisdom, sadness, and resignation. 


Keeping the blues alive

 

My passion is the blues, connecting artists with blues lovers or introducing new lovers to the blues communities and traditions that produced blues a century ago and are still producing a wealth of new music. From small neighborhood clubs to stadium stages—and the virtual stages of the Internet—the cultural heirs of Robert Johnson, BB King, and Muddy Waters are reaching larger, more diverse audiences than ever before.  These artists legacy are the foundation of a new breed of blues players who are creating a lot of exciting music, and if we want to make a case for the continuing power and importance of blues, that’s a good place to start. Come look at these great artists and share in their passion. 

On behalf of Bluesbird Talent, we would like to thank all the dedicated blues musicians, talent buyers and promoters that year after year bring the best music to their audiences and are committed to keeping the Blues alive. This agency was founded out of a love of the blues and has never strayed from that focus.

 

At Bluesbird Talent we strive to make the booking experience simple and stress free by treating Blues musicians, talent buyers, and festival promoters openly and honestly so all parties involved in the performance have a positive experience. We maintain a level of trustworthiness and high business ethic that has helped Bluesbird Talent gain respect of artists and buyers and has set the standards for service and detail for other agencies to follow. Thanks again for all your support. We look forward to meeting and working with you.
