Black Oil Brothers - Long Way From The Delta

The Black Oil Brothers are a 3-piece acoustic delta country/blues/folk band out of Chicago, IL.
Here's what they have to say about themselves.
Before the blues found its way to Chicago and redefined itself with electric guitars and drummers, bluesmen were minstrels playing juke joints in the Mississippi Delta armed only with their guitars and voices while the crowd kept the rhythm by stomping their feet in time. Born and raised in Chicago, The Black Oil Brothers aim to channel that kind of boot stompin' blues that doesn’t need a backline or distortion pedals to make it cook. Resonators played with steel slides, wailing harmonicas, 3 part harmonies and the righteous twang of acoustic guitars and mandolin strings define our music (and very well may be saving our souls at the same time). Let us save yours. Preaching the gospel of Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Leadbelly, and Gram Parsons.

Take a trip to the site it's worth it as they have some freebies there, tour dates and of course a link to buy the new CD!
