Who Is Blues (est. 2017) allows me – Vincent Abbate – to write about who I want and what I want without having to cater to the tastes of magazine editors and their readers. It’s a place where I can get real about this music we all love. If you click your way around the site, you’ll find candid musician interviews, live reviews, the weekly Listening Party feature (“One album, no scotch, one beer”) and assorted extras.
Who Is Blues is also a book series. It began in 2018 with Doug MacLeod: The authorized compact biography, which is available in print and eBook versions and as an audiobook on all major streaming platforms.
The second book in the series, The Interviews: Blues Encounters 2000-2020, is due out in September 2021.
