I wouldnt call him a blues player, but Brewster does a few blues songs, such as Broken off of his debut record.

Also give Johnny Hiland a look. He's more rockabilly, but if you're into blues im sure you could find a little bit of joy in that style.

Sometimes it seems to me like a lot of Christian Blues artists try to hard to look or sound Christian, and they forget to just play honest music.

That's one thing I love about Glenn Kaiser--he sounds honest to me.

I've also met him, and he comes across that way in person.
He is very much like his music.

Darrell Mansfield is sometimes like that--and sometimes tries to hard.

He should do something with Glenn Kaiser again.

Trimmed & Burnin' and Slow Burn are two of my favorite albums.


But for other blues--check out Blind Willie Johnson & Rev Gary Davis--They definitely inspired Glenn Kaiser.
Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee did some gospel music stuff as well.

High quality Christian blues is hard to come by, especially here in England.

Most of the good stuff I have come across is blues music by artists who are Christians rather than 'Christian blues'.

Eric Bibb is superb - As someone already mentioned - In my Fathers House is stonking. Also the Painting Signs album.

Blind Boys of Alabama - although more of a gospel vocal group their spirit of the century album and the stuff they did with Ben Harper is very bluesly in feel.

Walter Trout - on his Live Trout album he writes in the liner notes about how he was only able to go on stage after having a prayer meeting with his band and some of his stuff is overtly Christian in its lyrics.

Nobby Reed - all of his stuff is great. Very good electric blues.

Victory in Heaven Blues Band - they are good but do kind of rip offs of famous secular blues tunes. Worth checking out though.

Todd Agnew - his Reflections on Something album is class. (bluesy rather than 'the blues')

Los Lonely Boys - Christians who play SRV Tex Mex blues with pop melodies. Not all of their songs have Christian lyrics though.

The Word - A collaboration between Robert Randolph, North Mississippi Allstars and John Medeski jammin old school gospel tunes.

We got tired waiting for someone to do some decent blues music in church here in Newcastle, England. So we decided to have a go ourselves. **Shameless plug alert*** Check out some of our tunes at www.myspace.com/srbuk . If you have some sort of downloader software from Real Player or Firefox, you can download them for free too.

Oh yeah! I love the work they did with John Hammond.... Really great stuff...

Also they did this with Tom Waits which is pretty awesome...

Try Christian Blues.net. There are a lot of bands listed there. I am not familiar with most of them. Mansfield,and Kaiser are most popular. May want to try Sleepy Ray and the Mighty Bloods...

I know that these are not really blues bands, but you might like to try Mike Farris, Denver and the Mile High Orchestra(D&MHO) and New World Son. All awesome bands and worth checking out. I saw a live on TV performance of D&MHO and they were absolutely awesome. Oh, yeah, and they love Jesus too.

There is a singer/guitarist in Texas named Evan Troy Danner who does some good Christian blues. He might have a website. He does have a CD.

I just download a Larry Norman album yesterday called "Something New Under the Sun". And while it's not totally blues, it definitely has a bluesy vibe to it.

For the most comprehensive Christian Blues CD store check out:

christianblues.net

I have a Christian Blues outfit called HoundDog Mike & the Crusade. We are currently at the number 1 spot on the Top Seller list there and here is the link to our page:

christianblues.net/s/scripts/prodView.asp?idProduct=254]HoundDog Mike & the Crusade - Take the Ride

Here is our press release there:

"Take the Ride" is the latest project from HoundDog Mike & the Crusade AKA d. michael matney. The CD features Hound Dog Mike and family's hardest driving blues/rock project to date. An already great CD is made even better with guest appearances by Greg Martin (Kentucky Headhunters, Mighty Jeremiahs) and Mark Kerr (Percy Sledge, Curtis Mayfield's Impressions).

I do have a couple of "special" special guests! I'm selling the CDs and donating half the money to the website to promote Christian Blues and the other half to a Charity in Chicago. Check it out and let me know what you think!

The band website is:

hounddogmike.com

In HIS Service,

HoundDog Mike

Best Christian Blues I have heard

I understand this thread is old but it still ranks high in Google for the term Christian Blues.

"The Followers" is the best blues Christian Band I have heard bar none and the album "Wounded Healer" is loaded.

The song "You Did Everything" is pure blues. Smooth with just the right piano and some solid guitar play.

You will not be disappointed exploring this one.

God Bless.

What the heck is Christian blues?

Lo! How a rose e'er blooming from tender stem hath sprung,
Of Jesse's lineage coming, as seers of old hath sung,
It came a flower bright, amid the cold of winter,
When half-spent was the night.

Isaiah t'was foretold it, the rose I have in mind,
With Mary we behold it, the Virgin Mother kind,
To show God's love aright, she bore to us a Saviour,
When half-spent was the night.

O flower whose fragrance tender with gladness fills the air,
Dispel with glorious speldour the darkness everywhere,
True man, yet very God! From sin and death He saves us,
And lightens every load.
