Best Contemporary Blues Artist
2 Time Nominee
Jus' Blues Music Awards
After 3 encores he had to beg the audience to let him leave the stage... Vince Abate Blues review Germany
He has that rare quality only truly great artists have: to create an immediate and unforgettably intimate connection with his listeners... Maxwell Cafe Paris
...a reminder that the blues is not about being down on yourself, it's about using the music to lift your spirits and celebrate. See Magazine Edmonton
Wes Mackey is a showman, charming and charismatic, he captures the audience. Peppermint Blues Belgium
Mackey is one of those interesting characters who – despite a musical résumé going back 40 years and including gigs with the likes of Jimmy Reed, John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters – has somehow flown under the radar when it comes to wider acknowledgement.
The 72 year old has now released his latest CD, and a very impressive offering it is.
This CD should appeal to those who appreciate the likes of Taj Mahal, Eric Bibb, Corey Harris – or who just appreciate classy modern blues.
