Album: Cigar Store
Release date: November 4, 2016
This is the new album from The Smoke Wagon Blues Band called Cigar Store. These players from Hamilton, Ontario have been in the Blues scene for a while now; since 1996. From 5 star ratings in many blues magazines to topping charts around the world they have just released another independent album.
They have come up with some pretty intense tracks on this album. Beginning with my favourite track, “Quarter Mile”. I first put this track on in the morning and boy it sure got me moving. The sweet guitar flow sped me up and the story line is a great motivation to getting that one fiery woman in your life that gets your heart beating time in a “Quarter Mile”.
This band is a true representation of Hamilton’s scene with its Dark Valley flow. If you ever get a chance stop in to Hamilton for a bite to eat and a good show if you can catch one from The Smoke Wagon Blues Band and most important come support this band of amazing performers here on all of their online sites:
Inspirational Interviewer and Promotional music lover for artists.
Born in Kingston, I grew up with the likes of Dan Akroyd and his blues influence and also The Tragically Hip, plus live shows downtown in the streets and country bands in the pubs.
I love music in all forms and genres. I can adapt my ear to enjoy and appreciate all instrumentals and vocals. I started writing about certain artists that I grew up listening to and then I reached out to artists for interviews. I have done over 20 interviews with artists and CEOs of industry companies from all over the world.
Now, with Canadian Beats I have an opportunity to improve my journalistic abilities and to get the word out there for artists, and best of all to go to shows and get that personal feeling. I get to represent Canadian music on a higher level. We need to open more doors and have more shows and venues, as well as get the world to come to us. That is my goal.
