This is one of the hottest young bands today!
This debut CD from The Blue Threads out of Houston, Texas rocks from start to finish! Amazing guitar - The Blue Threads sound and original tunes penned by band leader and guitarist Dalton Dunn, are inspired by an eclectic mix of Jimi Hendrix, The Stooges, Muddy Waters, SRV, The Jeff Beck Group, with a little bit of indie rock “and stuff” as Dalton is fond of saying.
The Blue Threads began in 2004 when Dalton Dunn met Brandon Custer at Shakespeare's Pub in Houston, Texas during a Blues Jam hosted by "Spare Time" Murray. Dalton was long known regionally as an up-and-coming blues guitarist who first played on stage at the age of 10 with Matt Leddy & The Meatcutters. The two young men gelled instantly and decided to form a band.
During the summer of 2006, they booked several gigs in Houston including the venerable Fitzgeralds where legends such as BB King and Stevie Ray Vaughan performed. They also took a road trip to Austin to attend a few jams on Austin’s famous 6th Street. During the Fall of 2006, they competed in the International Blues Competition hosted by the Houston Blues Society, winning 3rd Place in Region among artists many years their senior.
During Spring Break of 2007, armed with Dalton's originals and plenty of great cover tunes, The Blue Threads spent a week with Rock “Dr. Rockit” Romano at his Red Shack Recording Studio in Houston. This album is the result of their "blood, sweat, & tears".
