Billy Price, Johnny Rawls

"Unlike so many blues revivalists, Price is not an imitation of better singers--he's the real thing." - Geoffrey Himes, Washington Post

BILLY PRICE 

2016 Blues Music Award Winner Billy Price first attracted national attention during his three-year association with guitarist Roy Buchanan. Price is the vocalist on two of Buchanan's LPs, That's What I'm Here For and Live Stock. Since then, with the Keystone Rhythm Band, the Billy Price Band, and solo projects, Billy Price has recorded and released a total of 15 albums, CDs, and DVDs. In April 2016, he was officially recognized and inducted as a Pittsburgh Rock ’n Roll Legend at an award ceremony.

Price’s album This Time for Real, with the late Chicago soul singer Otis Clay, received a 2016 Blues Music Award in the category of Best Soul Blues Album of 2015. A live recording of the Billy Price Band, Alive and Strange, was released by Nola Blue/Vizztone Label Group in April 2017.

JOHNNY RAWLS

Johnny Rawls began playing professionally while still in high school with such stars as ZZ Hill, Little Johnny Taylor, Joe Tex and the Sweet Inspirations.  In the mid-70's, Johnny went to work for OV Wright as Wright's band director.  After Wright's death in 1980, Johnny led Little Johnny Taylor's band until 1985, when he began touring as a solo artist and made his first solo recording under the Rainbow label.

Johnny has appeared on the cover of the April 2002 Living Blues Magazine and has been nominated four times for the W.C. Handy Award.  His most recent award came from the West Coast Blues Hall of Fame for RB Male Vocalist of the Year 2006.

Johnny has performed at the Chicago Blues Festival twice, The Russian River Blues Festival, The King Biscuit Blues Festival, The Portland Waterfront Blues Festival, Poconos, as well as festivals in Sweden and Poland.  He tours constantly, playing well over 200 dates a year.  He can also be heard on XM radio's Bluesville.  Whether he is playing in a small club or a large blues festival, Johnny gives it his all and the crowds love him!

In 2008, Johnny released Red Cadillac which charted at #1 on the Living Blues radio chart.  He was nominated for Best Male Soul Blues Artist and Best Soul Blues Album by the Blues Foundation.  He won the Critics Award for Best Album of the Year by Living Blues Magazine.
