Releasing their debut album in 1979, The Fabulous Thunderbirds have championed the art of blues rock for over 30 years. Famous for singles such as "Tuff Enuff" and "Wrap It Up," the group is so much more than their Billboard Hot 100 hits. Lead by the band's co-founder and sole original member, Kim Wilson, The Fabulous Thunderbirds continue to develop their already distinctive and powerful sound with additional musical styles. Such development is showcased on the band's most recent album, On the Verge, which came out in mid-March. The album is a departure from blues rock and explores a more soulful side of music, marking the beginning of a new era and new flock of Fabulous Thunderbirds.
British singer-songwriter Bobby Long bases his acoustic style in the traditions of folk and Americana. His 2011 debut, A Winter Tale, displays his talent and love of each genre, as he produces a rhythmic and energetic blend of guitar and vocals. Long's newest album, Wishbone, was released this past February and features a compilation of the roughness and rawness brought to these musical styles. Wishbone allows listeners to experience a maturation in Long as he strives to improve his musical capability.
