Wyland Blues Planet Band, an all-star group that includes Taj Mahal, Rod Piazza, Roger Lewis of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and marine life artist Wyland, will release their debut effort, Blues Planet, on November 22 via Wyland Records.

Renowned marine life artist Wyland changed the way people think about our environment when he started painting life-size whales on the sides of buildings in the 1980s. Through his unique marine life paintings, sculptures, and photography, Wyland has inspired a generation about the importance of marine life conservation. Wyland now brings his artistic vision to the masses with the release of Blues Planet. Recorded in May 2011 in New Orleans at the famed Piety Street Studios, and following the one-year the anniversary of the Gulf Oil Spill Disaster, Blues Planet explores a new genre of “Global Blues” that spotlights Wyland’s passion for conservation through the blues sounds of Memphis, New Orleans, and the Mississippi Delta.
