No Comments Latest Blues News Music

Ghost Town Blues BandHard Road To Hoe is the third release from 2014 International Blues Challenge 2nd place finishers and Memphis, Tennessee’s very own Ghost Town Blues Band. This twelve-song record, lead by front man Matt Isbell, is an enormous explosion of blues and roots music from Memphis, though the hills of North Mississippi, down the Big Muddy all the way to New Orleans.

Recorded on 2” tape, chalked full of horns, organ, piano, cigar box guitars, harmonica from 3-time BMA nominee Brandon Santini and even featuring push broom and shovel percussion, this album was recorded in the newly renovated Ardent Studios-Studio C by 6-time Grammy Nominated Producer and Engineer, Kevin Houston.

Matt Isbell is also the creative genius behind the Memphis Cigar Box company. Matt has built Cigar Box Guitars for Joe Bonamassa, Cyndi Lauper, The Spin Doctors and Steely Dan, to name a few.
