The songs on this CD were birthed out of a journey – in 2015, a team of minstrels and psalmists traveled throughout the United States to several cities and regions that had acted as seedbeds for the development of blues music. Starting in Charleston, SC and finishing in Kansas City, MO, the goal of this journey was to honor the sounds that had been released in these regions and to bless the bloodlines and family trees that had been affected by this powerful genre of music. Lives were changed, atmospheres were shifted, and new songs were born. The phrases, themes, and rhythms of the songs on this CD were directly influenced by this powerful, life-changing journey. As you listen to these songs, may you have new insight and vision to see what you couldn’t see before – that’s what happens when the lights come on!
