I first heard JP Williams at the Pennsylvania Cigar Box Guitar Festival last year. Unlike the other acts bringing primal, slashing gutbucket blues and folk, Williams took the stage to deliver classic, uptown Chicago blues (and a touch of Memphis soul) on his cigar box guitar.

Williams has just released a full album of cigar box guitar blues, Everblue. Here's the first track, the appropriately titled, "Cigar Box Boogie."

This is contemporary blues with a twist. Williams' cigar box guitars are used like unexpected paint brushes. In "Leave My Poor Heart Alone," you have the classic elements of Fender Rhodes, saxophone, cocktail drums and bass, but then Williams pulls out a homemade mandolin solo. WOW!

"It's a Sunny Day" opens with a beautifully imperfect acoustic cigar box guitar laying down the foundation. It's then joined by a Hammond B3, drums and more. Williams is joined by female singer, Ekat Pereyra.

There's some fantastic tortured harmonica on this album, too. "Bluesman Tonight" mixes the harp with some distorted cigar box and late-night sax. Somebody pour me an Old Fashioned and light my cigar.

For fans of Junior Wells or The Fabulous Thunderbirds, this is the cigar box guitar album you've been waiting for.

Welcome to my "Mixed Bag" of music. Believe me when I tell you it's been a long time coming. When I first started this project I was going to record an all blues album, but what came about is more of an sampling of what you hear when I perform "live", a mixed bag of my roots in blues and folk music. I did not try to make every song perfect, but I did put my heart & soul in each performance. Most of all, I made this album in the hopes that you, the listener, will find some joy in the music I sing.

Special thanks to all the musicians who played on this CD for giving their time and talent to this project, especially Eddie The Harp for playing from his soul and always being there for me as my friend and band mate. Thanks also to all the people who have nurtured and encouraged me to make music again after my long self imposed absence from music, Antoine Magliano, George Wesley, Billy Edwards, Sharon O'Connell, Lee Delray, Phyllis Hopkins, Tom Shaw, Paul Moran, Steve Hertzog, Carol & Fred Linde, Bill Coleman, and many others. Also to all the appreciative music fans who listen wherever I perform. And last, but not least to my loving wife Dana Allen Williams who supports me in my music and all other things in our life together.

I dedicate this album to you with all my love. ---JP Williams,
