Studebaker John's Malxwell Street Kings Kingsville Jukin'
New Delmark Release 2013

Studebaker John

Studebaker John is pleased to release his second tribute to the music that inspired his lifelong calling to the blues. Kingsville Jukin’ pays respects to artists both well-known and obscure, including Brewer Phillips, Big John Wrencher, Robert Knighthawk, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter, Hound Dog Taylor, J.B Hutto, Mississippi Fred MacDowell, Jr. Pettis (Daddy Rabbit), James Cotton, and all Maxwell Street musicians. Studebaker John says, “The music I heard on Maxwell Street was really intricate and personalized music. I heard this in the ‘60s and it was very different from the 12 bar club blues style that became popular in the ‘70s. If you never heard those guys on Maxwell Street, you haven’t heard the real deal blues that developed after the music of the Delta came to Chicago.”

What the critics are saying about Kingsville Jukin’

Mark Uricheck-Elmore Magazine
“There is perhaps no better champion of the classic, rolling-stoned Maxwell Street beat. Studebaker John shuns the 12-bar norm for one heck of a dirt-under-the-nails good time. Studebaker John’s specialty is basically an urbanized, rough-necked bastardization of Mississippi Hill Country blues, set to an ice-cool, backstreet attitude. Continuing a debt of gratitude to his beloved, gravel ‘n grit Chicago street-corner boogie, John digs even deeper into the primordial blues ooze for Kingsville Jukin’.”

Mark Augustine-BG Blues and Music News
“Even if the songs weren’t as consistently good as they are on Kingsville Jukin’, Studebaker John should be given credit for releasing an album of all-original material. The unpretentiousness and genuine affection for the music that is ever-present in John’s live performances is captured to great effect on this release. Of course many people know that recording and performing original material is one of John’s hallmarks, and is obviously one of the things that make him an indispensible part of the modern blues scene, especially in Chicago. As usual, John is channeling Hound Dog Taylor throughout this album. But that doesn’t keep him from sounding exactly like himself. People who have only listened to the Black Keys or the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion or even the North Mississippi All-Stars might be surprised to listen to this album and discover that those artists owe a certain debt to John – the minimal production, the vintage-reverb soaked vocals, the cryptic lyrics.”

Sheryl and Don Crow-Don and Sheryl’s Blues blog
“In listening to this album, one gets the feeling of what it must’ve been like to walk down Maxwell Street in its heyday, with the blues buzzin’ all around. John heard the greats, such as John Lee Hooker and Robert Nighthawk, and the obscure, such as one-armed harpist Big John Wrencher, one of John’s early influences, so much so that this set is dedicated to him. And, he captures their intensity within these grooves, and does so convincingly.”

Steve Jones-Chicago Blues Guide
“Studebaker John’s recent work for Delmark has been nothing less than superb. He has returned to the music of his youth; growing up on Maxwell Street, he plays this old style of blues with authenticity and what appears to be a magnificent sense of what it is all about.”

Studebaker John will be hosting a CD Release Party at FitzGerald’s in Berwyn on Saturday, Oct 19, at 9 p.m. Tickets available at http://www.fitzgeraldsnightclub.com/.

Studebaker John's Old School Rockin'
Delmark Release - Feb, 2012

Studebaker John

“On my last CD, Maxwell Street Kings, I wanted to capture the raw, less-is-more sound that I first heard on Chicago’s Maxwell St. My new CD, Old School Rockin’, is rockin’ blues that helps people to forget their troubles. I’ve tried to incorporate the raw blues sound into songs that strive to be more contemporary and without musical boundaries. It’s what that sound turned into in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, when the raw blues heavily influenced many contemporary artists, and changed the course of popular music. Old School Rockin’ is for all the people, from the rocking blues crowd to the purists, and from the young folks just getting into it to those who’ve been listening all along.”
~Studebaker John

Studebaker John's Maxwell Street Kings
That's The Way You Do
© 2010 Delmark Release - October 19, 2010

15 New Studebaker John songs - a tribute to all the musicians who performed on Maxwell Street.

Maxwell Street Kings pay homage to the early days of Chicago Blues, to a time when the open air market on Maxwell Street rang with the blues sound of street musicians; when musical giants like Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Hound Dog Taylor, Little Walter, Elmore James, and JB Hutto could be heard in steamy clubs on the city's south and west sides; and when the Chicago Blues of Chess Records ruled the air waves. Maxwell Street Kings capture the spirit of that era when Chicago Blues were raw, primal, and oh so vital. -Michael Dixon
