Smokestack Lightnin' Home Page -- The Blues Profile Page

For Lane Baldwin, Deeper Blues is the culmination of almost thirty years of playing, studying, and living, the Blues. Lane has spent decades learning from – and often performing with – Blues greats, such as Johnny B. Gayden (Albert Collins, Alligator Records, et al), Pinetop Perkins, The Nighthawks, Paul Bushbacher (L’il Ed & the Imperials), Tom Principato, Jimmy Thackery, Johnny Copeland, Mason Ruffner, and many others. Now, having amassed an extensive catalog of songs, Lane has stepped out front to lead what many are calling “the best Blues in decades.”
