Black Joe Lewis

If you didn't know any better you would think Black Joe Lewis came from a time machine built in the old Stax studios. He caught a lot of buzz during his recent shows at SXSW and it's totally deserved.

His sound mixes with some jump-type blues/funk of "Gunpowder" to the Otis Redding Stax sound on the song "You Don't Love". If you want I real treat go to his Myspace page and check out "Bitch I Love You."

You can catch him opening up for Austin's Okkervil River on 4/5 at the Granada Theater on Greenville. You can also get his albums here.
