Homemade Jamz Blues Band - I Got Blues For You

Northern Blues Music

Fans hungry for more from this amazing North Mississippi trio will find a feast in this sensational new album from Northern Blues Music.

The Perry siblings, Ryan, sixteen, lead guitar and vocals; Kyle, fourteen, bass; and Taya, ten, drums, burst upon the blues music scene in 2007, placing second in the band category in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis against a field of a hundred and the rest is legend. Not only were they the youngest blues band to sign with a major recording company, their smash debut album for Northern Blues Music, Pay Me No Mind, rocked Billboard Charts for seven weeks and garnered the band a nomination for the coveted Blues Music Award for Best New Artist Debut, 2008.

Their momentum continues. Homemade Jamz has been featured on the TV programs “Today Show,” (NBC), “All Things Considered” (NPR) and “Sunday Morning News” (CBS) and is in demand for festivals and other events everywhere.

And their music keeps getting better. I’ve Got Blues For You features twelve tracks, eleven of which are original numbers penned by their father Renaud Perry, who not only creates the unique handmade guitars Ryan and Kyle play but joins in with some rich harmonica work on several songs, including the rocking “Hobo Man” and the smoking title track “I Got Blues for You.”

Ryan’s wailing guitar work and throaty vocals backed by Kyle and Taya’s strong percussion keep the beat jumping on the Titus Turner cover “Grits Ain’t Groceries,” and from the up-tempo “Hard Headed Woman” to the sweet love ballad “Heaven Lost an Angel” to the traditional low down blues grooves of “In the Wind,” this album is a winner.

An immediate sensation from day one, Homemade Jamz proves once again they are no flash in the pan. I’ve Got Blues for You is a powerful follow up to the band’s knock out debut album. Their music is only getting better. Two thumbs up for I Got Blues for You!
