Two o'clock in the afternoon at Coastal Coffee Roasters in Summerville, SC – That's where I arranged to meet up with the author of one of my favorite Christmas Songs – "I C Christmas". As Eddie Bush began telling about how he got into music at a very young age, it became quite apparent to me that Eddie Bush was far from typical. After 35 years in the music industry and a "major recording label" deal, Eddie continues to write and perform original music as well as provide lessons to a large number of students. Taking into account his ability with the guitar as well as his writing and vocal abilities, it would hardly be a surprise to see him attain another "major recording label" deal in the not too distant future.

One of the greatest benefits of writing articles for Charleston And Lowcountry .com is the opportunity it gives me to meet, talk to, and interview outstanding leaders in our community such as Brad and Jennifer Moranz, whom I would otherwise most likely never meet. For that I am grateful.

I recently had the wonderful opportunity to interview the up and coming Rorey Carroll. This Sunday, September 11, 2016, she will be performing at the Charleston Music Hall with the Todd Snider's East Nashville Review, also featuring East Side Bulldogs, Elizabeth Cook, Aaron Lee Tasjan, and Kevin Gordon.

Rorey's sound conveys a sense of realism that resonates well with her audiences. I am grateful for her honesty and candor in this interview. It enabled me to get a small glimpse of the origins of the deeply rich and soulful sounds that are evidenced in her music and lyrics.

Spectacular Live Blues Performances at Home Team BBQ

I really really like Barbeque. However, not just any old BBQ will do. Slow cooked over wood; oak and/or hickory with an assortment of vinegar and mustard based sauces on the side, that's what I call real Barbeque. Now I also happen to have a rather strong affinity for live blues performances as well. So when it was brought to my attention that I just might have the opportunity to experience both at the same place and time... well now.
