Blues Chronicles was formed in Cleveland, Ohio (USA) 2011. Performing as an acoustic duo, trio or an electric quartet, their no nonsense approach provides a style that preserves the traditional sound of the blues and reflects their musical influences that originated from the Mississippi Delta, Piedmont plateau, Chicago and Memphis.
Following the release of their second recording, "Right Now" (winner of the Cleveland Blues Society's, "best self- produced cd" award in 2012) the trio traveled to Belfort, France to perform at the FIMU 2012 (Festival International de Musique Universitaire). They were chosen to open and close the four day event.
Performing as a duo, Reese and Al won the 2015 Cleveland Blues Society's Blues Challenge. They will represent Cleveland in the 2016 International Blues Challenge in Memphis.
