ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"A paragon of clarity, economy, and tastefulness, this is Earl Thomas' best album to date, destined to be a modern soul-blues classic."
– Thomas J Cullen III, Living Blues Magazine

The story of Earl Thomas and The Blues Ambassadors begins at a historical crossroads where African rhythms merge with European folk music, where sorrow creates soul, rural meets urban, and the global becomes national.

This San Francisco-based band achieves its distinctive sound from the international heritage of the blues, which is reflected in the multi-ethnic composition of the ensemble featuring musicians whose backgrounds embody both San Francisco’s cultural diversity and the stylistic roots of the blues.

Comprised of musicians from African, Asian, and European descents, they collaborate in performances that fuse contemporary style with rich vocals and compelling showmanship. They are Japanese keyboardist Takeshi Komori, with East Indian bass player Kedar Roy, Italian drummer Paul Revelli, British guitarists Robert Sidwell and Bob Welsh and frontman Earl Thomas hails from The Great Smokey Mountain region of Eastern Tennessee.

In their music, the cadence of the Blue Ridge Mountains blends with San Francisco's sharp city lights. Their gospel, rock, and soul blends with African, Asian, and European art and history as it weaves through an American national identity and culminates in a place—whether a country, a city, a front porch, a nightclub, a street corner, a juke joint—becoming a common ground for fellowship, recalling and creating life experiences anew.

And as the blues has evolved, absorbing global musical styles, The Blues Ambassadors have, with dynamic stage shows, soulful rhythms and elemental, unifying poetry, revitalized tradition.

Earl Thomas & The Blues Ambassadors are redefining the blues for a global generation.
