Active since the early 70s, harmonica player, guitarist, singer and songwriter Steve Bailey from Seattle has led a musical career as prolific and select as it's little known and valued. He was awarded best harmonica playe and band (The Blue Flames) by the Washington Blues Society and in the late 1980s he joined the band of another underrated bluesman, Isaac Scott, also from the Seattle area, with whom he spent seven years. His appearances in Europe have been notable, in London he came into contact with the guitarist Mississippi Macdonald, starting a collaboration between both that has led them to perform in the United States, Europe and South America and in 2019 the idea of ​​recording an album in recognition and tribute to the legend Sonny Boy Williamson (Rice Miller). Before the pandemic, a first single was released but the album release was delayed until now. "Crazy 'Bout You – A Tribute To Sonny Boy Williamson" is not only a modern, fresh and excellent blues album but it also gives us a new opportunity to approach the work of Sonny Boy Williamson who, along with Little Walter, is the bluesmen that defined the instrument of the blues harmonica from 1940. A true approximation to the musical personality of a bluesman not only indispensable but irreplaceable.
