BLues New From Portsmouth - January 2009

Welcome to this months news letter!

Happy New Year! Thanks to all of you who supported the various acts I'
involved with through last year and also thanks to those of you who donated
via the 'virtual busker' on the site and I hope you enjoyed the special CD
I put together for you. That offers now closed so here's a new one....

For each donation receeved I'll send a specially recorded mp3. Each one'll
be unique, if you have a specific request for a number you know I do, I can
record a special version of that, otherwise take pot luck, you know it'll
be authentic blues! 

To donate just use click on the "virtual busker" guitar case on my home page
or on my iacmusic website... or and you'll receive you mp3 by email. 

*IAC Review*

I got a great little review of my song "Every Penny" at IAC music last

""Ohhhh yeah ... nice and bouncy ... and bluesy ... and just down right good
You can tell when a craftsman is not only making a piece of art ... but when
he is enjoying his work during the process ... labor becomes play ... and
the creation shines ever so brightly ... The sound is not just sound ...
but a vehicle to carry the inner smile of the creator to the outer receptor
of the listener and travel all the way through and back out again ... only
leaving behind a little piece of that art for the listener to recall and
enjoy many times over ... such is the case with this thoroughly great tune
... Keep 'em coming Andy
