First Blood

Mike Henderson & the Bluebloods

Mike Henderson offers up a whole album's worth of blues on "First Blood." Joining the singer-guitarist are former Stevie Ray Vaughan keyboardist Reese Wynans and two Nashville session pros, drummer John Gardner and bassist Glen Worf. The arrangements are neither too polite nor too self-indulgent but instead relight the original flame inside old blues standards by J.B. Hutto, Hound Dog Taylor, and Otis Spann. This album should shatter every stereotype about Nashville musicians. --Geoffrey Himes

First Blood harks back to the glory days of the '60s blues-rock boom -- Mike Henderson and the Bluebloods' gritty sound is far from original, but years on the Nashville bar band circuit have honed their skills to a razor-sharp point, and the record is refreshingly raw and direct, distinguished by rock-solid musicianship. ~ Jason Ankeny Entertainment Weekly

"It's not often that a blues musician comes along and speaks with a distinctive and eloquent musical vocabulary, but when they do the effect can be invigorating.... conjures up grainy black-and-white images of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Winter and Albert Collins." ~JazzTimes

The SteelDrivers

The SteelDrivers

The Steel Drivers hail from Nashville, TN and concoct a sound that combines elements of tradition with contemporary flourishes.The Steel Drivers are a talented lot, and the sonic blast of many of these songs presented individually will probably take radio listeners by surprise. Taken as a whole, however, The Steel Drivers are stuck in overdrive.

Reckless

The SteelDrivers

The Steeldrivers may play traditional bluegrass, but they do it with a style that's informed by outlaw country and rock & roll attitude. Mike Henderson, who plays mandolin, resophonic guitar, and harmonica and also co-writes the majority of the band's original tunes, was one of the founders of the Dead Reckoning label, an alt-country label that released some of the best non-Nashville country albums of the ‘90s. That maverick approach is evident in the sounds The Steeldrivers generate here. The tempos on Reckless are more varied than those on their self-titled debut, but even the slower tracks pack the big emotional punch that bluegrass fans love, the kind of feeling that used to make country music dangerous.

Country Music Made Me Do It

Mike Henderson

This is pure roadhouse honky tonk, stoked with bent notes, twisted humor and a couple of tough, bittersweet ballads. ~ Michael McCall Personnel: Mike Henderson (vocals, acoustic & electric guitars); Biff Watson (acoustic & electric guitars); Tommy Spurlock (steel guitar); Mike Fleming (banjo); Blaine Sprouse (fiddle); Costo Davis (keyboards); Glenn Worff (bass); John Gardner (drums); Harry Stinson, Larry Marrs, Billy Smith, Terry Smith (background vocals). Engineers: Jim Ball, Tim Farmer, Blake Chancey. Rolling Stone (4/7/94, p.77) - "...Mike Henderson leaps from the roles of songwriter and guitarist to that of frontman with a honky tonk bravado that makes one wonder what took him so long....this hard-rocking, road-housing debut...should leave listeners howling at the moon..."

The Dead Reckoners

The Dead Reckoners

Frustrated by the over-commercialization of Nashville's music, six singer/songwriters joined together to launch an independent record label, Dead Reckoning, and a band, the Dead Reckoners. Taking turns in the spotlight and accompanying others, the all-star group brought a back-to-the-roots approach to a mixture of rock-, country-, and blues-influenced tunes. While they mostly furnished accompaniment on albums by labelmates, the full band joined together to record a live album, A Night of Reckoning, in 1996 featuring Kieran Kane, Kevin Welch, Mike Henderson, Tammy Rogers and Harry Stinson
