    ANNIKA CHAMBERS - BLACK WOMEN IN BLUES

    in this episode of Jack Dappa Blues Radio, Annika Chambers shares with us her experience as a Black Woman navigating the current Blues Music industry.  ANNIKA CHAMBERS, like so many powerful vocal artists, can trace her love of music back to early childhood. “I grew up singing in the church,” she says. Not that she had to tell us. Citing the gospel influences of Yolanda Adams, Shirley Caesar, Dottie Peoples, and Whitney Houston, you can’t help but feel the Spirit moving through the entire room when Annika throws herself into the heart of a song.

    KING FISH - Blues Music and Black Representation

    KING FISH - Blues Music and Black Representation

    In this episode of jack Dappa Blues Radio, I speak with Brother Christone Ingram, better known as King Fish. Clarksdale, Mississippi Blues legend in the making! King Fish discusses the culture, history, and meaning of the blues as it relates to fans, the industry, musicians, and the Black Community!  

    Once a generation, an artist comes along who not only reminds mainstream audiences how deeply satisfying and emotionally moving the best blues music can be but shakes the genre to its core. With both eyes on the future and the blues in his blood, 21-year-old guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Christone “Kingfish” Ingram continue to take the music world by storm after his 2019 release of his debut album, KINGFISH. Sprung from the same earth as so many of the Delta blues masters, Kingfish comes bursting out of Clarksdale, Mississippi, just ten miles from the legendary crossroads of Highways 61 and 49. A student of the Delta’s musical history, he is acutely aware of the musicians and the music that emerged from his corner of the world. “I do think I have an old soul, that I’ve been here before,” he says. “I’m moving forward with one foot in the past.” 

     "Is Christone "Kingfish" Ingram the future of the blues? The blues savior is one of the most exciting young guitarists in years, with a sound that encompasses B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix & Prince." —Rolling Stone   

    “You don’t see too many kids into blues music,” says the nascent star. “In my town, every kid wants to be a rapper – I wanted to do something no one else was doing.”  And although he grew up near the crossroads where Robert Johnson allegedly cut a deal with the devil, Kingfish insists he didn’t do any of that to make his guitar howl the blues. “I just practice all the time,” he says, “that’s the only deal I made, and it’s with myself.”

    DK Harrell Blues

    DK Harrell Blues

    In this episode, I speak with Louisiana Bluesman DK Harrell about the culture of Blues, the system that only allows one Black artist to be highlighted at a time, and the importance of reconnecting Blues People to Blues Music.  

    Born in Ruston, Louisiana on April 24, 1998. Dkieran was given the nickname, D.k. By his grandfather C.H. Jackson who swore that his grandson would be a musician. Dkieran grew up listening to his grandparent’s records that varied between old gospel,  r&b, and blues. His mother claims that his first words were BB King’s The thrill is Gone. Dkieran first started performing at 5 years old imitating Ray Charles and James Brown, it was until the age of 12 he took up blues harmonica after seeing the film “Cadillac Records”. At the age of 13, he went from harmonica to guitar and idolized Chuck Berry and John Lee Hooker but with many artists playing like them, he chose his roots to learn the ways of BB King. After years of watching various footage of King from 1968-2014, he has been claimed to play and sound like him. In 2019 he got a chance to show off his talent at the BB King symposium where he played one of BB’s custom Lucille’s. In 2020 he befriended many of BB’s former band members and great upcoming blues musicians like Jontavious Willis and Christone Ingram. Dkieran wants to bring back authentic blues, he feels music needs to continue to stay rich in soul and life.
