We were delighted by the announcement that Eden Brent and The Soul of John Black are both nominated in this year’s Blues Blast Music Awards, sponsored by the Illinois Blues Society and their weekly Blues Blast Magazine.
JB’s nomination follows on the heels of his nomination for “Best New Artist Debut” in this year’s Blues Music Awards, while Eden’s recognizes the buzz around her new album Mississippi Number One, which has earned a raft of great reviews and radio play – reaching #1 on XM Satellite Radio’s Bluesville, #1 on the Roots Music Report Blues chart, and charting for 4 consecutive months on the Living Blues Radio Chart.
To preview these artists’ albums in more detail, please visit their artist pages at Yellow Dog Records. Chicago-area radio station WGLT has also put together a page with sound samples of all BBMA nominees at http://www.wglt.org/programs/blues/blues_blast.phtml.
Voting closes on August 31st, so please visit http://www.illinoisblues.com/bbmavote today to support these artists with your vote! While you’re there, we can recommend Blues Blast Magazine as a high-quality source of blues-genre music news.
