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
10. Shake Rag

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!
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.
