Christian Blues music & bands DO exist!

I used to produce my own radio show in Albany, Oregon. It was called The Christian Blues Jam.

So, to the fellow who gave up on looking for Christian Blues music and artists...there are TONS of them! I have well over 100 cd's in my private collection.

Glenn Kaiser (Ressurrection Band and now Glenn Kaiser Blues band), Darrell Mansfield (& his lead Eric Turner), and Larry Howard (of Grinderswitch), are the "elder statesmen" of the genre.

Don't overlook Ashley Cleveland's works either. She's often viewed as a CCM artist, but she's scored BIG in recent years...even a grammy for best "Gospel Blues" album! Will Derryberry is quite good, as is The Nobby Reed Project and Dr. Tommy Ray O'Dell. And, don't forget about the Rev. Jimmie Bratcher and The Mighty Jeremiahs (w/ Kentucky Headhunter guitarist Greg Martin and Darrell Mansfield on harp).

And, you'll find a lot more really great stuff at www.christianblues.net! Please tell John & Warren that I said "hi".

Keep lookin' up,

J

I don't know much christian blues at all, but I was watching a music show once and this band played. I forget what they were called (some help, haha) and they were an Aboriginal band. The lyrics were mediocre christian gospel lyrics and the vocalist was definitely no singer, but the guitarist (a kid that looked about 14) was incredible. He was just ripping up that guitar, it was awesome.
If I ever remember the name, i'll let you know.

Rex Carroll (Whitecross) has put out one solo album in the Jimmy Vaughn pop/blues vein that is really good. It's also really difficult to find.

ancient thread, but good stuff.

Some of my favorite albums over the years:

Kaiser/Mansfield - Slow Burn
Glenn Kaiser - Spontaneous Combustion
Sleepy Ray - Where the Highway Turns

many other great suggestions already, but those three are probably top of my list, "Slow Burn" is probably one of my favorite albums of all time.

There's a good bit of Todd Agnew's stuff that has a heavy blues influence. I guess growing up in Memphis can do that...

Disciple did an awesome purely blues cover of "Amazing Grace" on their album What Was I Thinking.

This negatively affected my tone in ways that I just can't describe.
Then, on a whim, a few years ago I wandered into a Bath and Body Works store at a local mall and picked up some of their gentle foaming anti-bacterial hand cleansers.
The difference in my guitar's sound is so wickedly improved that I no longer feel the need to buy a new amp or pedals or even strings...EVER!
So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.
