Chicago blues singer, Nora Jean Wallace returns to claim her throne as the "Blueswoman." She is an American Blues Music Award nominee and is preparing to release her first set of new material in sixteen years. The new ten track release begins with the burning vocals and sweet harmonica solo of "Martel," along with the funky groove of "I Can't Stop." Next, is Nora Jean's original theme song "I'm A Blues Woman," as she sings with enough passion to show you who's in charge. The slow, swaying blues of the six-minute ballad "Victim" feels as if Nora is singing just you, in the setting of a smoky night club, while "Look Over Yonder" carries a more up-tempo beat. She keeps the dance groove flowing with seventies-style of "Dance With Me," before finishing her new album with the southern sounding guitar blues of "I Don't Have To Beg You To Love Me."

Also arriving at the end of the month is the latest release from fellow Chicago blues/soul singer Devin B. Thompson titled "Tales Of The Soul." It features eleven tracks, beginning with the swinging soul opener "Love To See You Smile," as Devin's pure vocals lead the way. He incorporates some blues into the funky breaks of "I'm Gonna Cry Me A River," before delivering a gospel-like rendition of the Gamble & Huff original "Something You Can Do Today." The energy picks up with the dance rhythm of "Back Together" and "Get Home Tonight," which also showcases his mainstream R&B side. Devin B. Thompson wraps up his new album with the nostalgic seventies funk and soul of "Read Your Mind," along with the all out blues of "Time After Time" and "Tell Me." To find out more about Devin B.
