COTTON BLOSSOM BAND

debbie bond cbb_soulshiningcdcov_med_hr-2Cotton Blossom Band is the realization of Nashville’s multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer andcreative director, Tony Gerber, joining forces with his old friend and space music co-pilot, Mason Stevens on Diddly Bo and guitars. In 2010, Gerber and Stevens started creating some new musical material and interpreting some traditional delta blues in their space music flavors to create a kind of delta space blues.

Being very inspired by this unique blues sound, Gerber called on his old friend and BB King’s bass player of 17 years, award winning Michael Doster. After doing a couple shows as a trio, the last version of the CBB included the legendary 5 time grammy winner, Roy “Futureman” Wooten on percussion, cajon and drum. They are pleased to present this new release, “Soulshining” as this musical blues quartet.

DEBBIE BOND and the TRUDATS

debbie bond that thing called loveGuitar player, singer and songwriter Debbie Bond made the blues her calling when she was drawn to Alabama over three decades ago and worked with, most notably, Johnny Shines, Jerry “Boogie” McCain, James Peterson, Eddie Kirkland, Sam Lay, Little Jimmy Reed and Willie King. Debbie continues to be an elder statesman of the Alabama blues scene after co- founding the Alabama Blues Project and releasing two albums, What Goes Around Comes Around and Hearts Are Wild.

Rick Asherson grew up in England as a classically trained musician and stumbled onto Willie King while searching for personal growth and the root of the blues. Rick and Debbie were introduced to each other by Willie King which turned into both a professional and personal relationship for both of them. Rick is a multi-instrumentalist/vocalist that is comfortable juggling two instruments at once.
