2x-GRAMMY® Award Nominated, 3x Blues Music Award-Winner and 15x-Blues Music Award Nominated Blues Singer & Guitarist JOHN PRIMER is a Chicago Blues Living Legend, and was inducted into the "Blues Hall of Fame" in Memphis, TN this year. THE CHICAGO READER states, "John Primer is a living link to the departed giants of Chicago blues. The veteran guitarist & singer learned his trade from the likes of Sammy Lawhorn, Muddy Waters, and Magic Slim." John paid his dues and in 1995 he began leading his own band, The Real Deal Blues Band. He has recorded on more than 87 albums with 17 albums in his own name. He has written and produced more than 55 songs on more than 6 record labels. "If you're unaware, the 2x- GRAMMY® nominated Primer's lineage is staggering. Before striking out on his own in 1995, he was the band leader for Jr. Wells, Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, and Magic Slim. So, he's had the best mentors and he continues to carry the torch," says GLIDE MAGAZINE.
"All the songs exemplify John's long commitment to Chicago blues... This is a really great album which I most highly recommend for adding to your blues collection... you will listen over and over again!" raves BLUES BLAST MAGAZINE (2022 Album Review of 'Hard Times').
