What a pleasure it is to share news of artists such as the infamous soul man himself Tomas Doncker. Tomas recently signed an amazing worldwide distribution deal with The Orchard. Doncker’s world wide soul mission and his constant dedication to musical experimentation has evolved into a multimedia concert performance featuring his newest release.
This latest release is a tribute to one of Tomas’ idols, Howlin Wolf, who was best known to his close friends as Chester Arthur Burnett, The Real Folk Blues Man. Tentative release for the new project is July 8,2014.
When speaking about this incredible new project Doncker was recently quoted as saying:
“We had been bouncing the idea of a blues” record around for awhile. A “hardcore” modern Blues record. Every time we discussed it The Wolf came up. Willie Dixon came up. “Smokestack Lightning”, “Spoonful”, “Evil” – on and on…The stories – so vivid, even today! We wanted to be a part of that lineage, that history. We wanted to tell that “Same Ol’ Story” one mo’ time…Our way! We felt the time was right.”
As head of True Groove Records Tomas Doncker and his True Groove All Stars have appeared on CNN and Guitar World while also headlining at NYC Summer Stage and grooving out tat he Shanghai World Expo in China.
True blues lovers will know who Tomas Doncker is. His music will be included in every collection you find. I assure you. Tomas and the gang are not just any ordinary band, these guys, and gals, put their heart and soul into the music and you feel it, hear it, and become one with it from the first note.
His electrifying tribute to Howlin Wolf is right on target and inspires the soul to groove and the body to move.
