Additional details

Bronx born Ted Horowitz is blues rocker Popa Chubby. He hit the Billboard Top 100 with the album ‘Sweet Goddess Of Love And Beer’ and a New York Times review referred to Chubby as a post modern Muddy Waters. He’s garnered a WC Handy Award for his 9/11 inspired "Somebody Let The Devil Out" and his recent album ‘Universal Breakdown Blues’ deals with a painful divorce and recovery. The songs feature searing guitar lines and heartfelt lyrics.

Multiple Grammy, Living Blues and WC Handy/Blues Music Award winner Joe Louis Walker is a powerhouse virtuoso, deeply soulful singer and prolific songwriter. Walker started playing in 1960s San Francisco with, or opened for, the likes of Lightnin’ Hopkins, Jimi Hendrix and Thelonious Monk. His latest album ‘Hellfire’ burns with rock energy featuring blistering blues guitar playing with gospel tinged vocals.

“His fretwork is indelibly stamped with his own trademark blend of emotional heat and impeccable precision – even at his most flamboyant, Walker sounds as if he’s playing ideas, not just notes.” - Living Blues

“One of contemporary blues’ most dynamic and innovative musicians, releasing consistently exciting music. No matter what he’s singing, Walker’s approach is soulful, heartfelt and spellbinding.” - Blues Revue

“Walker is a singer with a Cadillac of a voice. He delivers no-nonsense, gutsy blues. His guitar solos are fast, wiry and incisive, moaning with bluesy despair.” - The New York Times

“Boundary-pushing blues rocker Joe Louis Walker is a modern and legendary blues icon. [He plays] powerful, gritty, heavy blues rock.” - NPR Music
