The harsh rattle of work gang chants, the lilting blues of a New Orleans speakeasy, the biting rock of a Southern roadhouse, the quick percussion of a Latin combo, the haunting slide of a Delta holler, the touching romanticism of heartfelt ballads, Jump Jive and American Songbook styles all combine in a tasty gumbo that is “Evangeline”.

Join Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith, the mother-daughter travel team and publishers of Big Blend Magazines, for Big Blend Radio with San Francisco based singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Blind Lemon Pledge (aka James Byfield) who chats about his latest album, “Evangeline.”  Listening to the album is like taking a tour through America’s Roots Music legacy with overtones of deep Southern blues, Hoagy Carmichael swing, and almost Byrds-like melodicism.
