The Bluefields: An American rock band from Nashville, Tennessee. Their rock and roll story might be as pure and simple as the prior statement if it weren’t for the fact that the combined band members’ resumes boast platinum record success, a Grammy nomination, an Americana Hall of Fame Lifetime Achievement Award, and song authorships that have become iconic, rock and roll standards, making this band far from simple. Comprised of rock veterans, Warner E. Hodges on lead guitar and vocals (Jason and the Scorchers), Dan Baird on bass, guitars and vocals (Georgia Satellites), Brad Pemberton on drums (Steve Earle) and Joe Blanton on lead vocals and guitar (Royal Court of China), these southern bred rockers remind you why you love rock and roll in the first damn place!
Here's a shortlist of what the members of The Bluefields have and will be up to in 2020...so far!
Joe Blanton (me) Just released a new single with Dan Baird called Out Of The Woods. My solo record entitled, Good, Bad, Right or Wrong is NOW available on CD, iTunes, Spotify, or wherever you listen to your music. I'm currently producing/recording Warner's new album which is leaning towards his Scorchers roots. I'm also working on a new top-secret project with Dan, and surprise special guests which is sounding pretty hot! Life is good!
Dan Baird has officially retired from touring but has just released The Chefs with longtime friend Stan Lynch. Dan has a NEW website to boot where you can pick up the record. Check it out HERE.
Warner E. Hodges has released a new album entitled Just Feels Right with his ace English band of John Powney, Jason Knight, and Ben Marsden. Look for 2020 touring dates and get the new album HERE.
Brad Pemberton is busy as hell touring all over creation with the fab Steve Earle! He KICKED ASS on the new Bluefields album and we had a blast playing with him on the OCC 5 with Warner. Rock on Turbo!
That's all for now, Stay safe and stay tuned. We ain't outta the woods yet. JB
