2014 release from the Blues veteran. With a career that spans over three decades, John Hammond is one of handful of Blues musicians who was on the scene at the beginning of the first Blues renaissance of the mid-'60s. Some critics have described Hammond as a white Robert Johnson, and Hammond does justice to classic Blues by combining powerful guitar and harmonica playing with expressive vocals and a dignified stage presence. Although he's a multi-dimensional artist, one thing Hammond has never professed to be a songwriter. In the early years of his career, it was more important to him that he bring the art form to a wider audience by performing classic - in some cases forgotten - songs. Now, more than 30 years later, Hammond continues to do this, touring all over the U.S., Canada, and Europe from his base in northern New Jersey.
