Blues streak

Mike Zito

One of the most lauded blues artists working today, Texas-based blues musician Mike Zito began playing guitar at the age of 5 and made a name for himself as a teenager in the St. Louis, Missouri, music scene. Then came a string of critically acclaimed albums and a nomination for Best Rock Blues Album at the Blues Music Awards for his 2011 album Greyhound.

More albums followed, including Rock ‘N’ Roll (2019), a tribute to rock ‘n’ roll pioneer Chuck Berry; Quarantine Blues (2020), which was recorded during the coronavirus pandemic; and his latest, the forthcoming Blues for the Southside, a double live album slated for release in February.
