"When I realized it's the right time to begin this production, I decided to produce an album that would bring me back to who I am and where I came from. Since I was a child I would listen and play along with old Blues records from the collection we had at home, and it became the sound of my childhood. Since then I grew into different music Genres, but with this album I went back to the Blues. I am blessed to have great musicians who played with me in this project, my band and singers. They all inspire me to continue what I'm doing. It was important for me to record the songs live, with hardly any overdubing, so we can create a more dynamic and geniune sound. Basically as close as we could get to the old Muddy Waters albums I used to listen to. It is a combination of the 2012 sound, and songs from the 1920's and the 1960's".
