Nedra and Julio, Rock n Roots
Brownie McGhee used to talk (and sing) about the 'blues buzzin' round like a bunch of honey bees. Guitarist Julio Inglasses and Harmonica-blower, singer/songwriter Nedra Russ get the blues buzzin', the rock rollin', and root's homegrowin', and your toes tappin'! In fact, their first song collaboration, 'Little Bumblebee' has just been set free to buzz around the internet.
nJr draws from deep and eclectic roots in music ranging from gospel, blues, folk, to rock, with originals and select standards delivered in an inimitable, nitty gritty, and down to earth range of styles.
The combination of vocals, deep-rooted blues and explosive instrumentals displays promise to keep those bees buzzin for a long time!
