In this episode we feature music from Kai Strauss & The Electric Blues All-Stars, a band consisting of European blues musicians. Although this band grow up in Germany, they are equally as authentic sounding as their American musical counterparts and heroes. Strauss has earned a solid place in the hearts of the blues community over the past 25 years.
"Even as a teenager, I was infected by the music of Buddy Guy, BB King or Jimmie Vaughan," says the guitarist and singer, who is now considered in the European scene as one of the big names, according to the magazine Bluesnews.
Four German Blues Awards (including Best Guitarist 2018, Best Band 2016), TV appearances, music magazine covers and concerts in more than 20 countries are notable benchmarks in Strauss' career.
Please check out Kai Strauss & The Electric Blues All-Stars's 'Live In Concert' album, it gets 5 out of 5 stars from me. Nate Taiapa (The Blues Room)
