Bobby Rush and Scott Billington Win a Grammy!

I am thrilled to announce that Bobby Rush’s Porcupine Meat has won the 2017 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album. Making this album and working with Bobby was one of the highlights of my career. Every musician on the record– Vasti Jackson, David Torkanowsky, Shane Theriot, Jeffery ‘Jellybean’ Alexander, Cornell Williams, Kirk Joseph, Jeff Albert, Khari Allen Lee, Roger Lewis, Jeff Watkins, Barney Floyd, Johnette Downing and Charles Elam– brought his or her best to the sessions, and we had the great pleasure of recording at The Parlor Recording Studio in New Orleans. My longtime musical partner, engineer Steve Reynolds, delivered an incredible sounding record, assisted by Matt Grondin and Nick Guttman.
