Pick Your Poison

Out May 19 2017


From Tampa, Florida Selwyn Birchwood cuts a commanding presence on stage.

Well over six-foot tall, this twenty-nine year-old is an elegant and fluid new-wave blues guitarist.  He is a winner of the Blues Foundation’s 2013 International Blues Challenge (band category), as well as receiving the Albert King Guitarist of the Year award – no mean feat with there being no shortage of outstanding axe-men out there.

Out May 19 2017 is his new collection Pick Your Poison via Alligator Records, a follow-up to his acclaimed 2014 debut Don’t Call No Ambulance.  On the new release Birchwood is joined by saxophonist Regi Oliver, bassist Huff Wright and drummer Courtney “Big Love” Girlie.

Listening Through The Lens caught Birchwood’s impressive performance at the Crescent City Blues & BBQ festival in New Orleans Louisiana a while back.

Here is Birchwood and the band live at Music City Roots in Franklin Tennessee.
