Grammy nominated guitarist ERIC BIBB has released the video for his brand new single “Whole Worlds Got The Blues” (shared below) — which commemorates his signing to his new record label Provogue/Mascot Label Group.
Eric Bibb’s accomplishments include a career that spans five decades, recording with folk and blues royalty, two Grammy nominations (for Shakin’ a Tailfeather in 1997 and Migration Blues in 2017) and multiple Blues Foundation awards, and a following that crosses borders and continents
“The title of ‘Whole World’s Got The Blues’ refers not only to the current global pandemic challenging us all, but also to the fact that music-lovers around the world love the blues,” comments Bibb.
“Recorded in New York City with ace producer Glen Scott, this track features legendary drummer Steve Jordan, world-renowned bass player Tommy Sims and the phenomenal Eric Gales on lead guitar. We can’t wait for you to hear it!”
This compassionate song, with its woodstove guitar, and apple-warming, and hugely supportive voice from Bibb is like a geothermometer for our times. Yes, humanity has had its sadness… but it’s only altar angels like Eric (and Eric too) who can soothe away the torments…
