Tweed Funk originally came to The Couch back in April of 2012. They return with their new album, First Name Lucky and we will find out what the band has in store for 2014 while we listen to cuts form the album.
The band Tweed Funk earned their way to the 2012 IBC by way of the Grafton Blues Society. Not bad for a band together for less than a year.
Their debut album, Bringin It brought the band huge recognition and airplay.
Joseph "Smokey" Holman on vocals, JD Optekar on guitar, Marcus "MG" Gibbons on drums, Eric Madunic on bass and Jon Lovas on Sax are the core of Tweed Funk.
They have a new album dropping the week they are on the show entitled Love Is and we will be playing cuts from it on the show as we chat with the guys.
Then Boy Wells will make his trip to The Couch after having to reschedule his first appearence.
Wells is a veteran of the southern rock scene that was rooted in the geographical and multi-stylistic pocket around the nation’s capital, who now resides in the artistically fertile hills of Central Texas.
His album Blue Skies Calling is a collection of sweet tuneage.
Boy has had some difficult times in his life and we will explore how they shape his music and where he is headed in his career.

Stevie J. Bio. - Already hailed as the new face of the Delta Blues, Stevie J is well on his way to capturing the crown of Southern Soul as well.
His guitar skills are nothing short of spectacular. He is a supremely confident vocalist capable of wringing every nuance from any lyric from any genre. Yet Stevie J remains humble and true to his first love. THE BLUES
Stevie J, the son of pastor and native of Jackson, MS, started his career in the gospel field playing for artist such as the Williams Brothers, The Five Blind Boys of Alabama, The Mighty Clouds of Joy, The Jackson Southernaires and the great Shirley Caesar.
Stevie J found his true calling when he teamed up with legends such as Bobby Rush, Pat Brown, Denise LaSalle and Shirley Brown. Stevie J recorded with Bobby Rush on the Folk Funk album and is also featured with the Martin Scorsese blues series live at Ground Zero. Stevie J has toured throughout Switzerland and France performing at the Cognac Blues Festival. His talent has also taken him to Spain, Italy, Norway and Belgium.
Stevie J is a delight to the eyes and ears. He plays what he feels and has fun doing it. Right now Stevie is enjoying the success of his new album 2 Sides OF a Man with the single “Because Of Me”, which is #1 on the Southern Soul chart.
There can be little doubt that Stevie J is the undisputed New Face of The Delta Blues (and goodwill ambassador of American Music), for as long as he lives.
