Guitarist Magazine 2013 updated edition “100 of the world’s greatest guitar players interviewed and profiled”. Walter Trout is going to BLOW you away!
"Trout is the man who followed Eric Clapton, Peter Green and Mick Taylor as chief guitarist for John Mayall's blues outfit, and who had a long career as a leader of his own band." — USA Today
As Walter Trout powers into his 25th year as a solo star, there’s no whiff of the ennui or creative autopilot that hobbles the later output of most veterans. On the contrary, there’s a sense of growing momentum, "I feel like I play with more fire than when I was 25. I’m still reaching, y' know…?”

“Monophonics [is] another prime example of the talent spewing forth from the streets of San Francisco and surrounding areas.

DIVE HOUSE UNION
Dive House Union is perhaps the pre-eminent band among a new generation of blues-based outfits in the region. Fronted by uber-soulful vocalist/guitarist David Michael Miller - and including guitarist Todd Eberwine, drummer Shannon Street, bassist Dave Herr, keyboardist Tom Scime and saxophonist Barry Arborgast - the band's sound is far too diverse and far-reaching to be labeled strictly blues. But the blues is certainly at the core of the DHU funk/soul/R&B/rock mélange.
