Melbourne’s Dan Dinnen was the MBAS 2008 Blues Performer of the Year. The title enabled him the opportunity to travel to the USA, and visit the birthplace of the Blues. This album, his second is informed by that visit and his linking of his current Blues heroes with the pre-war artists who “found” him.
Dan’s strength is his ability to write material that contains the elements of the Blues, coupled with a personal viewpoint.
“The Blues is a deep, deep well, full of joy and tears, music to party and pray. I drink and draw from its waters.“ states Dan in his liner notes.
