John's life started in Camden Mississippi on his grandmother's sharecropper land, dreaming of a better life and
working in the fields. His biggest dream in life was to someday play his guitar with his idol Muddy Waters. John ended up
doing that and much, much more!
John should be credited for helping Muddy Waters bring the Blues to Chicago and for
taking it into the 21st Century.
John has been that perfect liaison, filling
the gap between the older traditional style and the younger Chicago Blues style.
John went from field songs and gospels, into traditional Blues, then R&B and Soul then finally pioneering the infamous
Chicago Blues style we know today.
All Original is a dream come true for
John. 12 all original songs recorded for his very own record label, Blues House
Productions, is another first.
Cataloging his own music, writing, producing,
teaching young musicians and sharing his experiences with the world is now his
focus and life mission.
This first CD is only the beginning, putting 12
all originals into it's collection.
All Original starts out fast with
"Add A Little Touch", shaking you up and getting you ready for a for a full Blues Experience. "Going Back To
Mississippi" pays tribute to his home and let's you into his heart. "I Called My Baby" is a slide guitar
lovers dream! "Everyday Brings By A Change" is one of John's favorites and represents how he looks at life.
"Blue Eyed Woman", "Other Man", "The Woman That I am Loving" and "Bad Child" are all
great examples of John's diverse Blues skills. "Keep On Loving The Blues" is another Primer favorite. John sings
this at the end of most of his shows to send the audience home remembering to keep on loving the Blues. "At Home Alone"
is a great soul-felt, minor key song, highlighting Johns R&B, soulful voice. "Say Yes, Don't Say No" shows
John's playful spirit. "All Original" ends with "Love In My Heart For You" a traditional acoustic
duet with just John and Harmonica Hinds. John's 3 year old daughter Aliya Makayla Becker is with them dancing around the
studio, keeping daddy's music alive and well!
This is only the beginning for John's new label, Blues House Productions.
Many more CD's are already being worked on. The label's intent is to preserve the Blues precious past, helping less
fortunate musicians, while producing original music for our future. -LB
