Steve Freund “Come On In This House”

FreundCoverSquare

“Steve Freund is one of the most consistently creative guitarists playing blues today. His crisp, cleanly executed solos are marvels oinvention, filled with surprise yet firmly within traditions established by such giants as Hubert Sumlin and Albert, B.B., and Freddie King. He also has evolved into a commanding, quite soulful vocalist.” – Lee Hildebrand/Living Blues

Alabama Mike “Tailor Made Blues

Many things come to mind upon hearing Alabama Mike sing for the first time, but mostly its…where has this guy been?! With a soulful voice that brings such greats as Elmore James, Buddy Guy, Little Johnny Taylor and yes, even a young B.B. King to mind, you will be asking yourself why haven’t I seen or heard him before. Alabama Mike is a very unique talent – not only a gifted singer but also a very talented songwriter .

Rusty “Manifestation

9 Above Records is proud to present it’s first release – “Manifestation” by Rusty. No stranger to the music industry, for the last 25 years Rusty has traveled the world performing Blues & Soul music as Rusty Zinn. In the spring of 2009 Rusty made a pilgrimage to Kingston, Jamaica and recorded “Manifestation” in the birth place of Reggae music, where he spent two weeks soaking up the vibes and working on the album. Joining him on this recording are many Reggae greats, including Sly Dunbar on Drums, Boris Gardiner on Bass, Robbie Lyn on Keyboards, and the legendary Scully Simms on kette drum & percussion. With the true Reggae royalty lineup behind him, Rusty has created a very soulful piece of Reggae art, which Roger Steffens has already hailed as “a lustrous album of all faiths, embracing hymns for the new century.
