Album Notes
Mare Edstrom’s road to the blues has been long and interesting. While she is primarily classically trained, her formative years were spent playing piano and singing in local rock bands. Her first album, Learning How to Believe, was a combination of finely-crafted original songs and carefully selected cover songs by legends of the singer-songwriter school. She brought a truly new perspective to songs by the likes of Townes van Zandt, Eric Taylor, Greg Brown, and Janis Ian. This amazing work was quickly followed by a second release titled Inside the Blues. This release, a blues tribute, showcases works by Blind Willie McTell, T-Bone Walker, Muddy Waters, and Blind Willie Johnson, as well as works by her admitted heroes Memphis Minnie and Little Esther. This highly acclaimed work has found its way onto major radio station playlists throughout Europe and the US. Inside the Blues has had extensive favorable reviews, including key reviews by Blues Review magazine in the US and Crossroads magazine in France. Mare’s wide vocal range, energy, and vintage brand of roadhouse authenticity have been duly noted by critics again and again. This exciting new take on the blues is still receiving international attention and has established Mare as a major player in the blues style, often compared to the great ladies of the blues, past and present.

March 2006 will mark the release of Mare’s much anticipated second blues effort, titled Shake ‘em on Down. This release features some new band members as well as an interesting and exciting mix of early blues rarities. Songs by the likes of Scrapper Blackwell, Bukka White, and Bumble Bee Slim are dusted off and shined up for a new outing. Exciting arrangements packed full of melodic guitar, barrelhouse piano, and Mare’s throaty vocals are sure to be a rockin’ good time for all.

Mare is currently touring as half of an acoustic blues duo with Midwest producer/guitarist Kenn Fox. They present a repertoire of songs spanning the '20s through the present and featuring vintage songs by the greatest obscure bluesmen of each era. Kenn Fox's mastery of various blues styles including bottleneck slide guitar and Piedmont-style fingerpicking combined with Mare’s incredible vocal virtuosity have steamrolled audiences throughout the Midwest.
