From his NYC roots and his Indiana and Chicago musical upbringing, Severn Records recording artist, Tad Robinson has caught the attention of the scene with his 10 Blues Music Award nominations (the Grammys of blues music) and his recordings for the Severn label as well as his earlier work on Delmark Records. He tours widely in the U.S. and has played in over 20 countries worldwide with performances
at some of the most important international blues festivals. With harmonica chops influenced by Sonny Boy Williamson and Junior Parker and a vocal style inspired by Otis Redding, Syl Johnson, and Al Green, among others, Robinson ranks as one of the most unique and talented bandleaders in the international blues and soul communities.
Robinson’s new release Real Street on Severn Records continues his high level artistry. On the 10 tracks on Real Street, Robinson is backed by the architects of the Southern soul sound, the Hi Rhythm Section.
After more than 30 years Knock-Out Greg has got a pretty solid claim for being a top act on the Scandinavian blues scene. He discovered the blues at age 14 when he first met Swedish blues legend Sven Zetterberg. His soulful vocals, razor sharp guitarplaying and fat harmonica tone inspired by Big Walter Horton and
George Harmonica Smith has amazed bluesfans everywhere. His first 20 active years he fronted the legendary RnB combo Knock-Out Greg & Blue Weather touring extensively all over the world. The band released 6 albums on Last Buzz records, Blue Mood records and Finnish label Goofin ́ records. The last 10 years he has been seen backed by different constellations such as Knock-Out Greg & the Injectors and Knock-Out Greg & the Jukes to mention a few.
