Son Lewis has been an active figure on the Blues music scene for some time. His work as a modern day exponent of the Blues, and R&B, has led him to recognition as a performer and recording artist. Son began playing Blues guitar in the 1960's, influenced greatly by artists as diverse as Robert Johnson, Otis Rush, and Elmore James. His own particular guitar style developed under the guidance of Blues guitarist Danny Kalb (founder of the Blues Project, a seminal Bluesband of the 1960's).
As a solo artist, performing the traditional country Blues, Son has become known as a faithful, and loving interpreter of this nearly lost musical art form. In live performance, TV, radio, and on recordings, Son Lewis has proved to audiences everywhere that the Blues is a vibrant, and exciting form of musical entertainment!
Marking a return to the style that he first started playing in the 1960's, "The Country Blues" features Son joined by his long-time musical partner Jerry Fierro on Blues Harp.
Recorded live at the Wilson Auditorium at Fairleigh Dickenson University (during a benefit performance for WFDU-FM) and at the scenic Warwick Valley Winery for Doc's Blues and Barbecue Festival, this disc really represents the excitement and passion that Lewis and Fierro have for the Country Blues.
