Description

Layla Musselwhite

The blues is a feeling, and many seek it while some are born into it. Layla Musselwhite is a New Orleans-based singer songwriter and slide guitarist. Drawing on a rich musical legacy via her father, blues legend Charlie Musselwhite, Layla grew up on the road steeped in the music of thegreatest blues artists of our time. Charlie’s innovative playing led him to share stages and travel the world with artists like Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, Big Mama Thornton, & John Lee Hooker was Charlie’s best man when her folks decided to make it legal. These artists were legends to many and family to Layla. As a teenager she started getting lessons in Mississippi hill country guitar from Charlie, and her music reveals a deep respect & understanding for early blues rhythms and melody, with a contemporary neo-soul voice that sends chills down the spine. You’ve got to hear her play slide. Brian Stoltz from the Meters said when they shared astage at Chickie Wah Wah that she was “The real thing – lots of guys try to play like that and they can’t. She’s got it. Amazing.”Her live band reinvents blues classics and plays her beautiful open tuning originals like a juke joint time machine where 70’s soul kisses the blues of the 1930’s, in a city where legends and legacies are everywhere & the river runs through it. Come find out for yourself & get you some.
