  • The  Blues is everything! 

  • The Blues is the harmonic and rhythmic basis of nearly all forms of popular music today including jazz, soul, funk, rock, R&B, Hip Hop, Americana, and Pop. 

  • The Blues Is a perfect genre for exploring emotion and expression.

  • Using a standard form or pattern and infusing it with our own experience creates a unique artwork.

  • The Blues is an important aspect of American and Global cultural heritage and history.
