Blues Roundup   – “If The blues Had Wings’ CD Review

Philadelphia based singer Deb Callahan sings with passion and verve on the New Orleans R & B, Delta and Chicago blues, gospel and soul influenced material that comprises her “If the Blues Had Wings”, from her new self released album.  The disc boasts 11 originals along with covers from Bob Dylan, Memphis Minnie, Victoria Spivey and Edith Johnson.  Callahan’s tight band backs her with gusto and if this impressive debut is any indication, The Deb Callahan Band may rise from regional to national blues scene success in the very near future.
