The tags on your page say Canada. Are you sure that you're not from Tupelo, Mississippi or New Orleans, Louisiana? What an incredible blues tone you have. And your own song, the first, is radio ready as a cross-over hit, not just an R & B / Hip Hop thing. It's got a shuffle beat like zydeco and on that song, you've got some of the "N'awlins" thing. What's that? Say it out loud as "Nu-awlins" (with accent on the "awl") which is how the natives pronounce it, at least the cajuns do. I totally dig it. Really, you could expand it past the prose with some more instrumental sections, as long as they kept the same meter.

And I liked the Blind Lemon feel you had on "Tobacco Road."

thank you so much guys! I'm very glad you like it, and really appreciate you took the time to give me the feedback, as i usually don't have someone to listen to it before i put it out. I'll keep working on it and post some more on here, i'm hoping to really try new things. For that song in particular I really like the idea of the instrumental being more fleshed out, but the creator of the instrumental has lost her project files on her software ...:'(

As far as that accent goes, that's just me being a faker....hehe..Oh how i love those guys so much though! big influence as you've pointed out.

Again thank you for the feedback and the artist references, i'm going to look them up.

No problem, bigwon. Sir Elton John speaks with an upper crust London accent but when he sings, he sounds like he is from Texas. Absolutely nothing wrong with "faking" the accent. It is still an astounding achievement and, more importantly, you've got the heart of the blues. Absolutely well done.
