Album Notes
Memphis Gold honors his African American roots and continues the blues tradition. he has not let recent injuries get in the way of progress, and has shown an undying will to spring back from difficult circumstances. On "Pickin In High Cotton Album, Memphis reflects back on his early boyhood memory of blues artists playing good ole' fashioned, traditional blues music. He has played with such artists as Big Lucky carter, Jessie Mae Hemphill, Evelyn Young, David Evans, Uncle Ben, Leroy Martin, R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough , Earl "The Pearl" Banks and many other Memphis and Mississippi artists of the time. Chandler's Memphis roots also run deep to Reverend Robert "Tim" Wilkins and his father John R. Chandler and years of playing in the legendary Memphis deep blues bands like the Fieldstones and the J.J. Blues Band. Today Chandler resides in Arlington, Virginia and is recovering nicely.

The blues world continues to discover and love the music of Memphis Gold. Living Blues Magazine, the oldest authoritative Blues Magazine in America placed him on the cover of their February/March 2009 edition, and Gibson Guitars recognized Memphis Gold by awarding him with a custom guitar and endorsement. He was thrilled to perform at the Red, White and Blue Ball, the Official Military Inaugural Ball in January 2009. His music can be found on BB King’s Bluesville on XM Radio, Comcast Music on Demand, and radio stations throughout the world.
