    Andy Watts Israel's Ambassador of the Blues - Chasing the Blues 2 / Episode 33

    Andy has performed with many of the modern blues greats including Kenny Neal, Lucky Peterson, Johnny Winter, Rick Estrin, Bernard Alison and Eliza Neals, as well Joe Louis Walker.

Supergroove is a highly charged album of ten electrifying blues tracks - dusted with a bit of rock, funk and R&B - featuring Andy’s sometimes gritty, sometimes slinky guitar and his soulful vocals along with his great 9 piece band.
