Latest work

Growing up I remember being told the music lore that when Elivis Presley mixed country folk and blues he created Rock and Roll music. It was a story like King Arthur pulling the sword from the stone only a lot less believable. I feel like in order for this to be true you have to ignore a long list of black musicians that have been overlooked, under appreciated, and simply left out of the conversation. Originally I wanted to do a series of African American contributions to punk rock but I couldn’t even start that without mentioning the Godmother to Rock and Roll Sister Rosetta Tharpe.
