Based out of Athens, Georgia, Bloodkin is a band that possesses a hard-driving, wicked sound. Built around the twenty-five year partnership of songwriter Daniel Hutchens and guitarist Eric Carter, their powerful music has been honed through countless nights in smoky bars and clubs. With the release of their sixth CD, Ravin' Beauties, Bloodkin plans to continue to do what they do best play visceral, blues for whoever wants to listen.

"Still waters run deep" of all the members of the Allman Brothers Band, this phrase best describes Jaimoe. Since 1969 he has been the symbol of quiet diligence behind his drum kit, driving the group's music, but saying very little to put him in the headlines. Over the years, it has been assumed that Jaimoe while friendly and outgoing with the fans just didn't have much to say. Well, that's not the case. As it turns out, Jaimoe has plenty to say and by and large, it's not just about music. Compiled in several unusual places during the summer and fall of 1997 a Cleveland hotel room, an electrical storage closet at Red Rocks, the shower room at Coral Sky in West Palm Beach Jaimoe's remarks are personal, opinionated, and uniquely his. Prepare yourself for some heavy thinking the man was serious, and meant every word he said. It will surprise you and move you, but more importantly, it will make you contemplate your own existence. HTN is proud to present the world according to Jaimoe as it is, and as it should be.
