Luther Badman Keith | Blues Nation



LIVING BLUES PRAISES BLUESMEN ARE KINGS: “Well worth having—the regional/stylistic mix is imaginative; Keith’s fretwork is deft and emotionally rich; the arrangements are unusually well-crafted and sophisticated for a guitar-oriented blues set of this nature; and the musicianship throughout is first-rate--.-


Bluesmen Are Kings is the fourth CD of all original songs released by award-winning Detroit bluesman Luther Badman Keith.
“Bluesmen Are Kings is my way of paying homage to all of the great cats playing this music, known and unknown,”  Keith explained.  “It’s a spiritual experience, if not religious, when you really get touched by someone who can play the blues. That’s how I feel about the men who have this gift – Yes, Bluesmen Are Kings.”
Produced by Josh Ford, the CD is also a nod to Keith’s love of his home town, Detroit, and all the blues players on the Motown blues scene.
“Some of these guys helped me learn how to play the blues and are keeping the blues alive, “ Keith said. “I want folks everywhere to know that we have some great bluesmen in Detroit
