Jim Byrnes “...smoldering intensity...deeply soulful...” — Born in St. Louis, Missouri, “blues country,” if anyone can sing the blues, it's Jim Byrnes. Every now and then, if you’re lucky, you’ll hear a voice that changes the way you think about music. It’s that rare kind of voice that can take you out of yourself to a place where a song that you’ve heard a thousand times becomes brand new again. Jim Byrnes’ voice has that quality, and even though he’s been winning over audiences with his soulful vocals for more than fifty years now, he’s never sung like he does on Long Hot Summer Days, his newest album on Black Hen Music.  

For half a decade, this multi Juno award-winning bluesman has crooned, drawled, belted, hollered and sweet talked more songs into a microphone than most people ever get to hear in a single lifetime. He’s vibrated the rafters of theatres, saloons, pool halls and dance floors from one end of the continent to the other, with more styles of music than you could shake a stick at. It doesn’t matter whether he’s doing low down blues, gospel, R&B, old time, swing, country or good old rock and roll — when Jim Byrnes sings, it’s the real deal. He is one of Vancouver’s most popular musicians, as well as one of Canada’s best-known actors (noted for his starring roles in the series Highlander, Wise Guy and his own variety show The Jim Byrnes Show.) Listen and be taken away!  

Mainstreet Muze is a new Vancouver based independent band. The three core members Babe Gurr, Steve Hilliam and Adam Popowitz have individually or with other acts headlined and performed in numerous festivals and theatres throughout Canada and in the US. Now they have come together to pool their talents into creating this unique musical fusion of Roots, Blues and Rock. Most of its music is written by the singer-songwriter of the group Babe Gurr. Babe won first place in Nashville’s Sonicbids Songwriting contest, landed amongst the top 10 songwriters recognized by BillBoard’s prestigious International Song Contest; ranked in the Top 10 of the 2013 Indie International Songwriting Contest; and was selected as a finalist for three self-penned tunes in the 12th and 13th Annual Great American Song Contests. Her intelligent lyrics and memorable melodies are superbly delivered in a warm, sultry voice with a blues rock edge.
