Product Description

The Homemade Jamz Blues Band rocked the Blues world by coming in second at the 2007 International Blues Challenge in Memphis-competing against 100 other bands.Since then, they have amazed B.B. King in person and numerous blues audiences around the United States. Their first CD, Pay Me No Mind, is poised to become the most talked about blues release in 2008. Already referred to in blues circles as the Holy Grail of new releases, Pay Me No Mind is just pure, terrific blues music.

Review

A blues band featuring a 16-year-old lead guitarist/vocalist, a 13-year-old bassist and a 9-year-old drummer might well strike blues fans as little more than a novelty act. Indeed, Ryan Perry (the 16-year-old, his brother Kyle (bass) and sister Taya (drums) have a novel thing going on, but blues lovers will do well to listen to their debut disc before drawing any conclusions. This Tupelo, Miss., trio knocks down 11 solid tunes, 10 of which were penned by the kids' father, Renaud Perry. ''Right Thang Wrong Woman'' is a great, original blues number. Ryan sings the hell out of the song, and he snaps off a couple of pretty crunchy guitar solos as well. ''Blues Concerto'' showcases Renaud working a fierce harmonica and more strong lead guitar from Ryan. The next generation of blues players sounds like they mean business. --Billboard

PAY ME NO MIND
The Homemade Jamz Blues Band
Northern Blues Music

Combine youth, talent and enthusiasm with top-notch songs and you have the recipe for success. In the blues music genre that result is embodied in the new CD Pay Me No Mind by The Homemade Jamz' Blues Band. These three young Perry siblings from Tupelo, Mississippi, present their fresh, original sound on their fantastic debut album from Northern Blues Music.

These youngsters have been wowing blues fans all over the country for the past several years. They broke onto the blues scene with an impressive first appearance at the famed Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale, Mississippi, and followed up with bookings at festivals, a blues cruise, and a segment on the CBS Sunday Morning Show. The band won second place in the band category at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in 2007 to then sign with Northern Blues Music. They are the youngest blues band in history to sign with a major recording label.

Ryan, fifteen, handles guitar and vocals, with Kyle, thirteen, on bass and sister Taya, nine, on drums. But don't let their age fool you. The group has the polish and professionalism that usually only comes after years of experience. Ryan's wailing guitar work on songs like "Time for a Change" has the flavor of some of the best known artists in the field.

Pay Me No Mind includes eleven tracks:

1. Who Your Real Friends Are
2. Voodoo Woman
3. The World's Been Good to You
4. Right Thang Wrong Woman
5. Penny Waiting on Change
6. Blues Concerto
7. Time for Change
8. Pay Me No Mind
9. Jealous
10. Shake Rag
11.

and get this disc!

I had the opportunity to see these kids play last Sunday at the Billtown Blues Fest in PA and they blew me away!
It is hard to believe that their ages range from 9-16 but they play the Blues like they have been doing it for a lifetime. Joined on stage with their father on harmonica they put on a show that got the crowd going crazy for more, all three masters of their instruments and masters of the Blues!

This is a must have new release for any Blues fan, I can't wait for more from these up and coming artists!

Great blues chops. I'd never believe the players were 16, 14 and 9. The lead singer and guitarist, oldest brother, plays like a synthesis of BB King, Jimi Hendricks and Duane Allman. But really a sound all their own.
They must be old souls and are channeling delta blues greats. their father wrote all the material. The lyrics sound contemporary and ageless. Like or better than Cream at their peak. I first heard them on Fresh Air, NPR. They played 2 live tunes and I knew I had to get their CD. I listen to Son House, Robert Johnson, Jimi Hendricks, the Allman Brothers, Bobby Blue Bland, Eric Clapton, Richard Thompson and the Grateful Dead among others. They easily join this group. I look forward to their growth.

I'm not normally a fan of the blues but this album caught my attention after an interview on NPR. This band is GREAT! It's very hard to believe that the lead singer is a 16 year-old playing a homemade guitar and that the drummer is his 9 year-old sister. The songs are catchy, the lyrics intriguing, and the vocals superb. I recommend this album for anyone interested in good music.

This is a great blues album with first rate talent. I am totally impressed with any family that can pull off an album of this caliber and it's refreshing to see this talent emerge without the backing of the corporate music mills or focus group contests like American Idol. My hat's off to the entire Perry family. I've had this CD in my car for the last couple of weeks and still can't bring myself to hit the eject button.

I heard this group interviewed on NPR and had to hear more. I'm more a fan of Rock than I am Blues, however I love this CD; it a sort of a rocking blues that will definitely get your feet moving. Enjoy

These children are starting off in the right way, by having a focus and also entertaining us. They give an incentive to other young people to go for something positive and have a good time doing it.
