Every day my inbox overflows with music. Similar genres too from decades past but with a modern take. And I get that. People miss the real-deal musicians, the greats who innovated their own styles and sounds. They were artists of firsts. These 50 modern blues, rock, and Southern soul artists are some of my personal favorites.

I grew up in the "classic rock" era, but I love music of every genre. I love sharing my old favorites while still discovering new artists. The blues will never die. Almost without fail, great musicians seem to take to the genre early in life. For some, acclaim comes easily, others spend a lifetime making music before, suddenly, coming into the spotlight. The diversity of this list illustrates how many different styles are encompassed within the blues genre. These are only a few contemporary blues artists you may not have heard. Make sure to do more research on your own.

The album features five original tunes and eight covers of songs by the likes of BB King and Magic Sam. King is one of my favourite singers because you feel like every line he sings, he really means it.
He does now. He got a real died-in-the-wool delta bluesman Mississippi Eric Deaton. He got newly minted electric Guitar Hero Marcus King. It all amounts to another notch in the belt worn by Auerbach, who is proving himself an arbiter of taste and class. Cats from New Orleans, Louisiana are just plum better than cats from other states. Deal with it. Southside Smith and Bobby B provide the twin guitars on this funky Chicago jump and jive. Highly Recommended!
