2020 was such an incredibly challenging year , especially for musicians, but John and I were fortunate to get our 5th blues CD out to radio early in the year and had such a great response. We’d like to thank all of blues radio for your support of Lighter Side of the Blues, which ended up at #45 on the Top 200 Blues Albums of 2020 and #23 on Top 200 Contemporary Blues Albums of 2020. We are so blessed.
2021 is going to be a year of healing, so our 2021 release, which we’ve started rehearsing for is aptly named “The Healing Kind of Blues”. I’m super excited to get into the studio to start recording, as soon as covid permits. Love to all my Sacramento Blues family and my extended and truly special new blues sisters and brothers that I have come to know through WIB, Memphis and GotRadio’s Bit O Blues, and of course all my friends right here at Val Starr & the Blues Rocket. xoxoxo. xxxoo
