The many flavors of Blues

Grew up in the mid-west, mostly, except when traveling from military base to military base. My father, Thelo M. Jenny, was born in E. St. Louis, his much older brother, Waldo started out in Med school but after the crash of 29, he chose to become an E. St. Louis police officer. At any rate time was spent in this powerful melting pot of poverty, hard living people who’s music was very much full of variations on blues from the delta, St. Louis across the river and some country, jazz, bluegrass, polka, and Dixieland thrown in for good measure. This exposure later served very well when playing in the earliest of local blues rock bands which, opened for many known acts and also got to be on interesting record labels. My favorite writing partner and producer for several years was Abner Spector, whom i met while recording at and for Chess/Cadet Concept.

I have a Soundcloud site as well as many other locations for my music on the internet.

I currently have set another song’ Analog Blues in a Digital World’ from the 2nd instrumental album ‘Blues in the Key of Peace’ as a free download.

hope you enjoy all the streaming tunes … be well, Peace.

Cheers

Digital music production

For countless years i worked in analog mode in studios and gigs, as an engineer and musician. I miss having the gear or access to the gear that supports that rich aural realm.

But by the same token, i have been fully digital for 5 years and find it to be very cool in it’s own right. I have written and recorded many albums worth of instrumentals and a few new vocal tunes as well as re-recording songs i have written in the last 50+ years. We, at Sunforest-Waterwahl publishing are doing our best to complete projects, release them and currently are working finishing package for more of them to produce CD’s

Samples and streaming can be heard at http://soundcloud.com/fenderman-1 and also found for sale on iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, CDBaby (my distributor and sub-publisher) and many more. Fortunately my music is getting global play and downloads.

Also good that i have a day job because the music business does not support writers like they used to 🙂 But for me the whole point is to get it out there and hope it helps people feel better about the day to day chaos of life in the 21st century on this rock.

Be well, Peace.
