From the same folks and artists who brought Kim Wilson to Godfrey’s this past September, comes Junior Watson.

 

With nearly thirty years of experience, Junior Watson has reached cult status. Junior has done what all great artists have done: melting diverse styles to create a style all his own. With influences as diverse as Tiny Grimes, Oscar Moore, Bill Jennings, Rene Hall, Robert Jr. Lockwood, Jimmy Rogers, Eddie Taylor, Guitar Slim, Earl Hooker and others he has truly created one of the most unique and original guitar voices to come along in years. Besides his mastery of blues and swing he often adds his own cartoon-like twist to everything he plays. You never know what he will do and when asked he doesn’t know himself. His energy and playing give you a feeling of reckless abandonment – as he was once quoted “like a train off the tracks”.

 

His artist resume is as large as it is impressive. A founding member of The Mighty Flyers he stayed with the band for ten years. He then left to join Canned Heat for ten years. He then toured for a while with LA-based harmonica player/vocalist Lynwood Slim. All along the way he has backed up and recorded with the who’s-who of the blues. His list of musical endeavors include performing and recording with Big Mama Thornton, George Smith, Jimmy Rogers, Shakey Jake, Luther Tucker, Charlie Musselwhite, Kim Wilson, William Clark and there’s more. Suffice to say the list is extensive.
With three solo albums under his belt, Junior’s solo career is a dream come true. Until recently, Junior has always been the sideman or featured artist. For the first time in his career he has a band that is taking the back seat and having Junior do all the driving. This fact alone is exciting and when unleashed, Junior shows the rest of the blues community what his cult status is all about.
