“Blues Power,” the newest album by Jeff Dale and The South Woodlawners is exactly what the title says it is. After over 40 years of performing and writing original roots music, Jeff Dale delivers a batch of tunes that radiate his hard scrabble beginnings on the south side of Chicago, his resiliency through tough times and his well-earned sense of humor. “Blues Power” is Jeff Dale’s sixth commercial recording in the last nine years and here are some stand out facts:

Ø Co-produced by Americana legend, Marvin Etzioni. Marvin was an original member of the Geffen Records roots rock band Lone Justice and his playing and his producing credits can be found from The Counting Crows to Trombone Shorty to Stephen Stills and Judy Collins.

Ø Among the guest performers is Rock n Roll Hall of Famer and founding member of the band Chicago, Lee Loughnane.

Ø Other performers on “Blues Power” include members of Buddy Guy’s current band, the late James Cotton’s drummer, a young, hard touring jam rock band “Hunter & The Dirty Jacks”, and the first chair cellist of the L.A. Opera (just to keep listeners on their toes!)

Ø Album mastered by four-time Grammy® winning engineer Joe Palmaccio.

Among Jeff Dale’s accolades prior to “Blues Power” are awards such as 2014 Pick of the Year from Blues in the Northwest, and a 2015 Shoutie Award from WXCI Connecticut – both for “Good Music” (Dale’s 2014 album). In 2016, Jeff Dale released the DVD of his concert with the last living original Delta bluesman, David “Honeyboy” Edwards. That project, “I’m Gonna Tell You Somethin’ I Know,” won the 2017 Living Blues Award and All Music’s Pick of 2017. Jeff Dale’s previous project, “The Southside Lives,” was nominated for a 2018 Independent Blues Music Award.
