Tommy Castro Presents A Bluesman Came To Town

"With A Bluesman Came To Town, what I have for you is a record of songs that tell a story. It's the story of a young man from a small town. One day a guitar-playing bluesman comes to his town. From that point on, the young man's life will never be the same. It's based on a classic hero's journey--the odyssey of a musician's life. I brought in the big guns this time and collaborated with legendary producer Tom Hambridge. I co-wrote most of the songs with him. In telling the story, I've tried to touch on the many different styles of music that I love. I'm excited for you to hear it!"  — Tommy Castro

The raucous, multi-song tale of a young man bitten by the blues bug. A striking collection of songs tell the story in vivid lyrics brought to life by Castro's patented roadhouse rock, soulful ballads and deep, greasy grooves. "One of the brightest stars in the blues-soul genre. Voracious blues energy and ultimate soul power...impassioned vocals and pure inventiveness in his stellar guitar solos." — Blues Music Magazine
