Biography

” If blues music grows and expands its audience over the coming years, it will be bands like WSNB leading the way. The WSNB sound flirts with swampy rock and roll and soul, while keeping a deep blues root running through its core. This ain’t your mamma and daddies blues. The twin leads from guitarist Nathan ‘Big Daddy’ Brown and harpist Willie Shane Johnston create a signature sound that’s topped off by vocals from Willie Shane that are as unique and soulful as the great Bobby Blue Bland. Rounding out the lineup is the rock solid rhythm section of Clay Ford on bass and Jason Gardner on drums. Two things jump out when listening to Jomo Swamp Root Boogie, the debut release from WSNB. First is the distinct musical sound. No other band sounds like this band. Second are the wonderfully written songs. In years gone by, blues was a music of protest, of heartache, of loss, of hope, of celebration. There was always a message in the music. In a time where most new blues cds are one cliche song after another, WSNB has put the message back into the song. Whether the songs are of protest (Honeywell), despair and anger over Hurricane Katrina (In A Bowl), stories of a Mississippi voodoo priestess (Casilla), or questioning love (3 O’Clock), there is nothing cliche about the music of WSNB.”

” Jomo Swamp Root Boogie…sounds like its name. It has blues dripping from all 15 tracks. The lyrics are intelligent, occasionally witty, and about life’s vicissitudes: love, lust, death, insanity, the war in Iraq. The music has that Delta/Chicago blues feel…Get a copy, or several. Enjoy its spell!”
