Bob Margolin loves to play the blues on his guitar, so he went to see B.B. King. That’s that he tells listeners when they tune in to “Young and Old Blues” off of Margolin’s upcoming album, My Road.

January 8th will be the day you can pick up your copy of My Road, which will be released on the Steady Rollin’ Records/VizzTone Label Group. The multi-award winning guitar player, singer and songwriter brings a fresh focus to his music and lyrics with this new release. Margolin has said:

“‘My Road reveals who I am today, musically and very personally. Each song takes a surprising turn from the others and my previous music. This breakthrough for me is informed by fifty years on bandstands, my Blues music heritage and credentials, and the drive to survive and thrive in today’s pressurized world. My Road is my ride through modern challenges, the ironies and lessons of aging, achieving true love, mourning, my band’s distinctive signature sound, a childhood epiphany, my seven years in Muddy Waters’ band, and exploring the darkest sides of life with friends who have been there.”

My Road was produced by the Grammy-winning Michael Freeman and recorded at Fidelitorium Recordings (Avett Brothers, Drive-By Truckers, Joe Walsh, Wilco, R.E.M.) in North Carolina. Margolin was joined in the studio by Chuck Cotton (drums/vocals) and Tad Walters (guitar/harp). The album features six brand new Margolin originals (plus two co-writes) and four written by Margolin’s friends. He long wanted to cover Sean Costello’s “Low Life Blues”, bandmate Tad Walters’ “Ask Me No Questions”, Tex Rubinowitz’ “Feelin’ Right Tonight” and “Dancing With The Devil’s Daughter” (D.B. Codd). They’re all here. Find out more on Margolin’s website.
