July 31st Brother Yusef
Described as a master solo guitarist, as well as a uniquely passionate vocalist Brother Yusef has created a sound that he calls Fattback Blues. He combines "traditional" finger picking and slide guitar playing with the contemporary feel of urban blues to create a full band sound with one guitar. He also uses his right hand thumb to beat out a percussive bass-line and shuffle, while the index finger plays rhythm and lead lines.
With seven albums under his belt he stays true to his unique, raw and intense emotions to encompass the Fattback sound while gaining recognition from audiences and musicians throughout North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and parts of Africa. Sharing the joy of the Blues with the world is his deepest passion.
