Black Shuck recording artist Big Bill Morganfield is blazing a new trail with his new CD, Bloodstains On The Wall. Big Bill Morganfield is Masterful, Powerful, Poetic, Fresh. Indeed, there is a definite message in his music that grabs your soul and touches your heart.
Bloodstains On The Wall offers an expanded scope of the blues. From the expected Postwar chestnuts (associated with the likes of Otis Rush, Willie Dixon and his father, Muddy Waters), to original gems like “When You Lose Someone You Love” and “Hold Me Baby.” Big Bill exclaims, “This world we live in is rapidly changing where lives or a life seem to be worth very little. But, all life and all lives have meaning. Black, White, Red, Yellow or whichever color you may be, all lives matter. Too much blood is being spilled on our streets.”
“Love the new release, Bloodstains On The Wall from Big Bill Morganfield. His vocals are on point as well as his guitar playing. And he’s backed up by some great players on the CD from Bob Margolin to Colin Linden, Eddie Taylor Jr. to Steve Guyger to ‘Mookie’ Brill, Doc Malone and others like Mofo Party Band. This new release from Big Bill Morganfield is solid from track one, “Lost Without Love” to track all the way through. This could be the one that pushes him over the top. He doesn’t have to ride on his name as his legacy because he is creating his own.” — Tony Colter(B.B. King’s Bluesville / Sirius XM Radio
“Soaring blues, with brilliantly crafted lyrics, add some swing, some boogie, some deep down blues, torching vocals and a fresh new twist with “Hold Me Baby.” — Larry Jenkins-Prime Minister of The Blues / WLTH Radio)
