Album Notes
Joe and Vicki Price catapult energetic country blues. This is finger style guitar in the Elmore James/Muddy Waters tradition, a bit rough and tons of fun.

Joe has been performing his ruff and tumble blues for over 35 years; a one-man blues tornado who can pack, command and wring-out a dance-floor with the authority of an eight-piece show band. While Price inhabits classic blues standards as if they were favorite shirts, his own deep and varied bag of original music is so formidable that noted Grammy-award nominated singer/songwriter Greg Brown has long referred to Joe as “the Buddha.”

Vicki Price is a distinctive, blues-belting guitarist who is as earthy, unique and seductive as a greenhouse orchid. Her intuitive, swinging blues style, accuracy and lyrical, light-fingered touch are unmistakable. Of course, the intersection/collision of Vicki’s life with that of Joe Price more than 25 years ago accelerated the process, but—make no mistake here—the creative, musical impact of this most-fortuitous of romantic pairings was and remains a bustling two-way street in nearly every way imaginable, and the artistic achievements of both partners are irrevocably intertwined.

Joe Price was inducted into the Iowa Blues Hall of Fame in 2002, The Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007, and was a finalist in the International Blues Challenge 2006. He has appeared on National Public Radio on the Michael Feldman “What Do You Know Show” and the “Big Top Chautauqua Show” opening for Greg Brown. Joe was endorsed by the Greg Bennett Guitar Co. in 2007. Joe and Vicki’s flamboyant, distinctive work on the Reso-Lectric guitars has earned them the endorsement of the National Reso-Phonic Guitar Company.

The pair have opened for such notables as John Lee Hooker, Willie Dixon, Pine Top Perkins, Homesick James, Honeyboy Edwards, Louisiana Red, The Reverend Al Green, Greg Brown and Iris DeMent . From coast to coast, and from concerts, to clubs, to outdoor festivals, the Price's singular vision and dazzling, irresistible live performances continue to etch a steady, upward arc.

Husband and wife duo Joe and Vicki Price don't just play the blues, they live the blues, and you can feel it in Vicki's aching vocals and Joe's soulful slide guitar throughout their new album, "A Brand New Place." The Iowa couple delivers 10 original country blues songs written by Vicki that sound like they would have been a hit for the Vocalion record label during the 1920s or 1930s, but as a testament to their timeless lyrical and musical qualities, are just as meaningful in the 21st century. "My Man," the album's stellar lead track, is a good example of the interplay between Joe and Vicki, as Joe's stinging guitar buzzes like a bee around Vicki's honey-like vocals and rhythm guitar. They go together like sugar and spice. ---Michael Swanger

Vicki Price has been singing and playing guitar most of her life, including joining husband blues legend Joe on close-to-home gigs over the course of their 20-plus year marriage and even releasing two find CDs (Mississippi Summer" and "Lookin' for Love"), but the Price family fortunes took quantum leaps forward in 2005.
Quitting her day job to commit herself fully to honing her skills while managing the couple's musical career was the kind of risk few folks have the nerve to take, but it has paid off handsomely with a busy, coast-to-coast tour itinerary and the elevation of Ms. Price's craft from inspired part-timer to a seasoned pro boasting enviable substance and command in her own right.

Featuring 10 new (but decidedly "in-the-tradition") earthy tunes penned by Vicki, "A Brand New Place" presents the singer's classic, "old-school" country-blues vocals belted out with sass and conviction over the dazzling National steel guitar interplay of Joe and Vicki.

Vicki's son Keni Ewing provides solid drumming where needed and Al Naylor provides some sweet trumpet cameos, but for the most part, "A Brand New Place" focuses on a splendidly gifted and undeniably plugged-in wife-and-husband act having a ball while throwing down a righteous, joyful, foot-stomping jubilee.


Long-time listener
Oh what a treat from the best Mississippi Blues duo on the mighty banks. Thank you for the new music and for god's sake, keep recording! This one will get to your core. I can see Joe sliding in my sleep when I listen.
