Billboard 2022 Blues Label of the Year Easy Eye Sound have released the latest single from the all-new anthology of 21st century juke joint music, Tell Everybody!, which is out August 11. Compiled and produced by Dan Auerbach — label founder and 2023 GRAMMY® Nominee for Producer Of The Year — the collection upholds Easy Eye Sound’s core mission to uplift and preserve unsung voices across the blues genre. A life-long resident of Panola County’s Como, Mississippi, the GRAMMY-nominated R.L. Boyce has spent over five decades transforming the fife and drum tradition of his childhood into his very own Hill Country boogie style: steady, trancelike rhythms that showcase his hypnotic guitar riffs and repetitive verses. Watch R.L. Boyce’s ‘Coal Black Mattie’ here: Pre-order Tell Everybody! (21st Century Juke Joint Blues From Easy Eye Sound)here: Cut at Easy Eye Sound’s Nashville studio, Tell Everybody! features exclusive recordings from a multigenerational cast of blues characters: from legends like Bentonia, Mississippi’s Jimmy ‘Duck’ Holmes, unsung Ohio hero Glenn Schwartz, and the Delta gospel sounds of Leo ‘Bud’ Welch, to brilliant newcomers such as Detroit duo Moonrisers and Korean-American Kentucky native Nat Myers — plus, a pair of never-before-heard tracks from both The Black Keys and Auerbach’s solo work. Listen to the title track by Louisiana powerhouse Robert Finley and Chicago-based Gabe Carter’s 'Buffalo Road', a Bentonia blues-driven track that features "hypnotic guitar riffs, Carter’s sharp-yet-raspy voice, and an old-fashioned AM radio quality in the best of ways," praises American Songwriter.
