DuWayne Burnside - After spending the last few years recording & touring with North Mississippi Allstars, Duwayne felt the need to decided it was tme to record a solo record. The title under pressure is not just from a blues perspective, but from which all can relate. Everyone knows what pressure feels like, Duwayne is keeping it real on this record, blending Memphis soul with seventies Motown. The sonic value is haunting, combined with raw hard hittin’ driven Northern Mississippi blues, crossroads into rock... So powerful from his ballads about Holly Springs & tribute to Junior Kimbrough, to his Father , R.L. Burnside’s song. Bad Luck City.” duwayne burnside
