New album

Waterstreet Blues Band's new album Talkin About (2021 CD, 2020 STREAM) delivers original blues with a rockin' party groove - with a gritty rootsy vibe, a haunting ballad, some jumpin' swing, or a spicy latin rhythm - all topped off with a bonus holiday original!

"Talkin’ About takes a look at the blues from a few different perspectives with a joyous, street-hardened sound and delivery...They’re ready to party right out of the gate!"
Hot Wax Album Review by John Kereiff

The album "Talkin About" is original music and well crafted covers, always rooted in the blues.


Turn up the volume and feel the full driving beat of the title track, then continue your journey with the second single: Miles to Go, a rootsy cover of a tune by Samantha Fish.  "Vodka Drinkin Woman" makes you wonder if you're back in the USSR or in a blues club watching the legendary Howlin' Wolf.  Riverside Child tells a compelling personal story that moves through misty enchanted adventures along the riverbanks with a “mind on a getaway."  The whole album delivers modern blues with an irresistible party groove and a retro rock ‘n’ roll vibe! You'll know what the waterstreet blues band is “Talkin About.”
