Launched in December 2009, The BluesPowR Blog covers the latest and greatest from the blues music world, from its home region of southwestern Pennsylvania to around the
globe. Authored by longtime blues fan Mike Rick - a PR professional who’s always had an appreciation for onomatopoeia (the combination of which explains the "PowR" in our name), the blog is
dedicated to showing readers everywhere the power of the blues.
Artwork by Russ Taylor
Russ Taylor's acrylic paintings combine strong compositions, vibrant color, and textured surfaces, with a style that is both sharp and rough edged, modern and primitive. His love of music, especially
Blues and Jazz, is reflected in many of his paintings. To learn more about Russ and his art, please visit his website: www.rtaylorart.com.
Many of the albums and shows discussed on The BluesPowR Blog are based on review copies or other promotional considerations provided either by artists, their
publicists/agents, record labels, or event organizers, to whom we are most grateful for their continued support.
