ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hailing from Virginia's Tidewater area and Shenandoah Valley, Lisa (Kiz) Carter has been playing guitar and singing the Blues for over 3 decades. With her powerful vocals and her strong and witty writing abilities, she brings the art of lyric composing to the genre of the Blues. Following and covering great songs by Sippie Wallace, Dina Washington, Ma Rainey and Skip James, just to name a few, Lisa has shared her brand of Blues though out Virginia playing at festivals, wineries, breweries and clubs. Her first CD of original songs, Out of the Blues (Lisa Miller) was released in 2010. Her musical partner of over 6 years, Jack (Juke Jackson) Roy, three time IBC semifinalist has been playing delta driven slide guitar, cigar box and diddley bow for many years. He has played with both of Muddy Waters' sons...Mud Morganfield and Big Bill Morganfield...Kiz Carter and Juke Jackson are ready to take you on a journey through old time Mississippi and beyond.
For this CD and many of their live performances, Lisa and Jack are joined by Wave Milor on harmonic and vocals and by John Stubblefield on drums. Both talented musicians in their own right, they have generously shared their talents and advice for this project.

Great blues -- give it a listen!
This is not just a blues CD – it’s a work of love by four people who have spent much of their lives immersed in the genre. If you doubt that, just listen to the first track cover of Skip James’ “Hard Times Killing Floor” and you’ll be hooked. The song opens with some of Juke Jackson’s guitar licks that sound more like a sitar than a guitar, and then Kiz takes over with her rich smoky alto voice that is both haunting and memorable. Add the tasteful harp music of Wave Milor and you’ve got a blues song for the ages. If this song doesn’t give you chills, nothing will. Nearly all of the artists on this CD have been competitors at the Blues Foundation International Blues Challenge in Memphis and the talent levels are obvious. Jack Roy (AKA Juke Jackson) makes many of his own instruments, owns no guitar that is not at least 40 years old, and is a brilliant and devoted student of the blues. Jack is not an SRV guitar-slinger wannabee but his chunky rhythms, neat fingerpicking and easy slide work make for a fgreat listening experience and show that he is the real-deal when it comes to playing the blues – as he does with great rhythm playing on Traveling Man and Kokomo. Wave Milor is a native Mississippian who can play the hell out of a harmonica and sing great lead vocals, as he does sharing the microphone with Lisa on “See My Jumper” and “Kokomo.” Drummer John Stubblefield has been a well-known and revered drummer in the Charlottesville VA area for many years, who perfectly walks the line between laying down a great rhythm and while not being bombastic or overpowering the mix. There is no bass player on this CD but you wouldn’t know it due to Jack’s “big thumb” and down-tuning on some of the tracks. This is a special CD recorded by devoted and talented blues artists and well, and a very worthy addition to your collection of good blues music.
