The Corner Blues Project / Bio

The Corner Blues Project was formed in the summer of 2012, when vibraphone /harp player Russ Snow placed an ad in Craigslist looking for a guitarist to help put together a blues band. Matt Shelly, a talented multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, was also on Craigslist preparing to place an ad looking to form his own blues band as well. The two men soon found they had an instant musical connection and immediately Matt became the guitarist, lead vocalist and front-man for the duo.
The Corner Blues Project is first and foremost a blues band – Their repertoire consists of traditional tunes by the founding fathers of blues such as Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Albert King and Little Walter. The band’s set list includes music from the later generation blues artists as well, like Stevie Ray Vaughn, The J Geils Band, Eric Clapton, Peter Green and The Allman Brothers. Additionally, the duo adds songs from several genres that have their roots in blues, from the “blues rock” of ZZ Top and Cream to rock-a-billy, rock & roll and even jazz. The band has also written a number of original songs.
The interplay between guitar, harp, vibes and of course vocals, gives The Corner Blues Project a distinctly unique sound.
