Looking for the real-deal blues? Well, step right up and give a listen, because Patrick Williams and His Blues Xpress deliver blues like they were meant to be played: fiery hot through and through, with the soul-stirring conviction of a veteran bluesman who plays each and every note like he really means it. And he does. Whether it’s a take-your-time ballad like Bobby Blue Bland’s “Double Trouble,” an uptempo blazer like “Big Leg Woman,” a psychedelicized version of Jimi Hendrix’ “Little Wing,” or a Latin-beat rocker like “Already Gone,” Patrick Williams packs a lifetime of absorbing and perfecting the best blues influences from the streets, the bandstand, and the blues stratosphere into each and every performance. Raised in the New Orleans projects, he’s always been surrounded by the inspirational sounds of blues and jazz. Teaching himself to play harmonica in high school, he went on to obtain a formal education in music performance. By his early 20s, he was already gigging on Bourbon Street and touring the world with the Rockin’ Dopsie, Jr., band, jamming with A-listers from Dan Ackroyd to Louisiana’s own Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Along the way, he has fine-tuned his take-no-prisoners approach, grinding the surface to a fine sheen and bulking up the lock-it-in-the-pocket drive, so you can be assured that Patrick Williams and His Blues Xpress is going to deliver the blues like they were meant to be played, wrapped in a great big sound, and honed to perfection making it easy to enjoy—The Big Easy Blues—all that and nothin’ but—from Patrick Williams and His Blues Xpress.
