Tab Benoit is a shining light in the modern blues scene. Everything from his vocals to his guitar is “pure down-home swamp blues.” With every powerful lick played off his Telecaster guitar and every word sung because bluesy voice, you will feel the discomfort he is going through as he sings of love failed. Benoit is likewise an outspoken advocate for conservation of our nation’s southern swamps and bayous. Many of his songs display lyrics which offer a call to action in protecting these natural deposits. If you close your eyes while listening, he can take you to those very same muddy backwaters where he grew up.
