His lineage and pedigree are without question in the wold of sacred steel, yet AJ Ghent pushes forward to reinvent the blues for modern times. His 2018 release, The Neo Blues project, is a lively and powerful work that dares you to jump out of your seat. The guitar work is both raw and finessed, with a groove that can’t be denied. The Neo-Blues project seems to pick up where Texas Blues left off so many years ago, with a return to the gospel. Dig in and support, and wherever you are - if you have the chance to see this man play, do it.
