Take Chris Bergson, one of the most inventive songwriters in modern blues music. Buddy him up with R&B/ gospel singer Ellis Hooks, and it’s an experience that reaches all the way to your soul.
Bergson’s ongoing partnership with Hooks, an acclaimed soul singer, has established Bergson, in the words of All Music Guide, “as creating his own blend of blues, roots and soul.”
“Upon first hearing guitar man Chris Bergson and his gravely southern drawl, which is a combination of Levon Helm and Gregg Allman, you can hardly believe this guy is from New York City … an artist dedicated to bringing blues and classic R&B into the future while honoring the past,” says No Depression: The Journal of Roots Music.
