MIKE ELDRED TRIO
MIKE ELDRED TRIO
“Mike Eldred is among the rare breed of guitarists who is not afraid of blurring lines in American Music. By bending all of his favorite musical styles, Mike has created his own original voice in modern electric guitar playing. HE’S WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT, BABY!”
- Brian Setzer
“The deeper “The Mike Eldred Trio” digs into American roots music, the stronger they sound” - Goldmine Magazine
"It’s like listening to what the Clash might have done if they had been born 20 years earlier..."
- Blues Blast Magazine
“It's not so much raw chutzpah as sheer love — backed by unassailable musical chops — with which veteran Southern California blues musician Mike Eldred puts on display in “61 and 49,” referencing the fabled intersection in Clarksdale, Miss., that's essentially ground zero in the world of Delta blues.
What makes the album such a delight is the masterful way the guitarist, singer and songwriter paces his trek through a rainbow's worth of electric and acoustic blues workouts. It's the sign of a journeyman who has spent untold hours playing clubs and learning the old-fashioned way what flies and what doesn't”.
- Los Angeles Times
Voted one of the best guitarists in Americana / Roots / Blues music, The Mike Eldred Trio is a roots “Super-Band” with Eldred (formerly with Stray Cat Lee Rocker) and John Bazz and Jerry Angel both from The Blasters! Their first CD (The Mike Eldred Trio) sent shock waves throughout the Americana/roots/blues community with rave reviews from Brian Setzer among others, and gave Eldred the title “best unknown guitarist”. The band's second CD (61 and 49) was voted of the Top Ten CD releases of 2011 by the Los Angeles Times.
The band’s newest effort is a multi-layered blues journey through Mississippi juke joints, prisons, churches, and the small neighborhood called Baptist Town in Greenwood where the legendary bluesman Robert Johnson was murdered in 1938. The trio invited several guests into the famed Sun Studio to lend a hand, and David Hidalgo, Robert Cray, and John Mayer help to tell a story of the dichotomy of the ongoing struggle between poverty and affluence, love and hate, and sin and salvation.
The trio’s 4th album “Baptist Town” is a monumental achievement in roots and blues storytelling, and will undoubtedly grow the trio’s already large fan base that includes artists like ZZ Top’s Billy F. Gibbons:
“El contenta completa”...! This is it. Enjoy this one, top to bottom, bottom to top. The Mike Eldred Trio makes the rounds through a blues-wrapped offering that is certain to satisfy. Rock it!”
LAURA WALSH
Nashville recording artist and Arizona native, Laura Walsh, is actively involved in the Southwest music scene. Debuting her brand new album, Take Your Time, Laura has been featured as a pre-show opener for Miranda Lambert, Sugarland, Lee Brice, and Kacey Musgraves as well as a featured guest artist with The Lost Trailers at the NASCAR race at Phoenix International Raceway. As a local regular, she is making a name for herself at venues such as Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill, Handlebar J, Hard Rock Café, Harrah's Ak Chin, and Martini Ranch.


Her first single, Hit and Run, released in Spring 2011, gave listeners just a taste of the power of her voice and songwriting capabilities. Upon release of the full album, Take Your Time, in May 2012, Laura displays who she is: confident, positive, loving, and strong. Take Your Time represents a rite of passage for a young girl that is knocking on the door of greatness.


Laura is so grateful and excited about the response she has received from local television stations, venues, and audiences of all kinds. She owes all the amazing opportunities that have come her way to God. Laura strives to be an example to young girls and women in the midst of an industry in need of positive messages.
