I’d like to invite you to join me each Wednesday afternoon for three hours of coast to coast blues. A high octane blues show with an occasional mix of classic rock, folk, and zydeco. Each week I will feature an artist, and introduce you to their latest work. There will be interviews, giveaways, and live in studio performances. So call up your friends, and plan a road trip each Wednesday afternoon from 3:00 to 6:00 with “Highway Blues”.

Featured artist interviews and in-studio appearances run from 3:30-4 p.m. central unless otherwise noted.

Wednesday, August 7: Shaw Davis & The Black Ties

Shaw Davis is an incredible up and coming hard rocking blues guitarist that is certainly deserving of the attention he has been receiving lately. He and his band “The Black Ties” have just recently released their newest CD titled “Tales From The West”. I will be featuring the music from his latest work, and speaking to Shaw today about his upcoming show at the Zoo Bar this Sunday, August 11th. If you take the Texas flavor of Chris Duarte. And mix in the sound of west coast powerhouse Phillip Sayce. Throw in an occasional splash of legendary Hendrix.  What you’ve got is the future of the blues with some real staying power. What you’ve got is……… Shaw Davis & The Black Ties.
