Rarely does one find as devoted and sincere an interpreter of the Blues as Miranda Louise. The Singer/Songwriter has been singing in amphitheaters, nightclubs and performing in Blues festivals in the United States, Europe and the Caribbean for the past fifteen years. As a master and demo studio musician based out of Nashville, Tennessee, her career has been well documented. She is a well-known and loved mainstay of the Southern Blues scene.
Miranda Louise’s discography reads like a ‘who’s who’ of the blues. She’s backed up Steveie Ray Vaughn, A.C. Reed, Warren Haynes and ‘Fingers’ Taylor to name just a few. In her own right, she’s a powerful blues vocalist who works with some of Nashville’s best musicians and puts on a great show.
“…Listen to Louise’s throat throttle these tunes and you’ll be almost convinced you witnessed the whole thing…”
Towering overhead at 6’10”, you could easily make a case that there’s no bigger blues musician than Big Mike Griffin.
Big Mike comes from a proud tradition of journeyman blues musicians. He has performed on stages across North America and Europe; every place from juke joints and roadhouses to Turner Field and Riverfront Stadium.
Born in Oklahoma, Big Mike has shared the stage with Hank Williams Jr., George Strait, John Connely, Johnny Rodriguez, Barbra Fairchild and David Frizzell. His relationship with those artists ultimately led to his relocation to Nashville. He was hired by David Allan Coe to play guitar in his band, and also toured with Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, George Jones and Neal Young, just to name a few.
In 2008, Big Mike starred in the award-winning documentary “Iron City Blues”, which chronicled his creation of a blues song about the most notorious town in the South. This film received rave reviews in the press, from Biker Magazine, to the European edition of Easy Riders Magazine. In 2014, Big Mike was inducted into the Oklahoma Blues Hall of Fame.
Jimmy, a sixth generation fiddler, also plays trumpet, guitar, mandolin, drums, steel guitar, accordion, and piano. In 1991 Jimmy moved to Nashville. His broad range of musical skills led to his work on the road and on television with Joy Lynn White, Johnny Paycheck, David Frizzell, Loretta Lynn, Hank Thompson, Charlie Daniels, Rich McCready, BR549, Hillbilly All Stars, Lee Roy Parnell, Joel Sonnier, and many others. Since 2004, he has played on the road with David Lee Murphy. #jimmylucilles #alphamusicnash
