All About Blues Music
There are many ways to describe the Blues, but as Gary Moore said, ‘Everybody knows what it’s about.’ Life, love, loss, there’s no story the Blues can’t tell without touching somebody’s soul. It’s best described as an emotional roller coaster, taking on a journey of highs and lows of joy, fury and heartbreak.This music has come a long way since its birth in the 19th century. Since then it has experienced a rapid evolution in form and style, giving us Rhythm ’n’ Blues (R ’n B), Gospel, Soul, and even Rock and Roll and Heavy Metal.

Without the likes of Robert Johnson, or Muddy Waters we wouldn’t have Eric Clapton, Slash, the Rolling Stones or Louis Armstrong. As the great Willie Dixon put it, ‘The Blues are the roots and the other musics are the fruits.

American Blues Scene
Back in the fourth quarter of 2010 when we founded ABS, aside from a small number of enthusiastic bloggers, there was little structured information or reliable content revolving specifically around blues music. We decided to reliably publish regular content not only about the most exciting contemporary acts, but also the broad, sometimes hidden history of the blues genre and the incredible ways it has shaped not only the country, but the world’s culture.  Nearly 1,500 articles and ten thousand miles of travel later, we’re continuing to pioneer quality music content for a blues and roots fanbase.
