Chris Sutton 05 5x7 -72dpi

“With a voice that sounds as whiskey-soaked as the bottom of a barroom bottle and a guitar approach that alternately weeps, wails and wallops, Chris Sutton is one of West Virginia’s most expressive blues artists. On ‘The Sun Studio Recordings,’ he plows through 18 original songs that evoke the themes, moods and soul-searing intensity of the genre’s classic material.”
~ Ken Bays – past editor of Blues Revue magazine
