John Primer at The Linda

John Primer has undisputedly helped build the sound and style of Chicago blues as we know it today. The echoes of tradition bellowing from the birthplaces he played such as: Maxwell Street, Theresa's, Checkerboard and Rosa's Lounges, pulse from every chord in his fingers today. John Primer is a Chicago Blues Living Legend.

Chris Kyle

Chris Kyle, who first came to us as part of Railbird - and more recently LIP TALK, has played with Sean Rowe, and many of the great Local 518s.  Plus, he's toured as part of The Duhks, and likely there is a lot more we are missing in our excitement to share his new single with you.  

"Falling in Circles" comes from a forthcoming record called "Air Jacket."  Chris, we cannot wait to hear more! And of course to play this on the radio!
