    "Blame Me" was delivered to my house a short while ago. Having tossed it into the CD player while on my way to a blues event, I must admit....I wished that the drive was longer. I had the chance to listen to it once, then twice. Later that evening, I tossed it in again and again. Yes, the music was that good from start to finish. Intrigued, I googled Ira Walker, my new Face Book friend. I was totally blown away when I read his credits...nominated for a Grammy for his producing, singing and writing talents. Instinctively, I was drawn into Ira Walker's bio. He had not only written many songs but played with an amazing amount of musicians... Eddie Money, Travis Tritt, Carlos Santana and Steve Miller (and many more). A songwriter for Warner/Chapel publishing, his talents enabled Tommy Castro, Lenny Williams of Tower of Power, Patti Loveless, Lee Ann Womack and many more. He co wrote the Eddie Money hit, "I Wanna Go Back." I was bowled over when I read that he toured with Keb Mo in Europe. His "music resume" was impressive. His accolades were earned and well deserved. Again, I listened to this master ....his talents include an unusual coupling of Blues, Rock and Southern Soul. Having 14 album producer credits under his belt, "Blame Me", is his own offering that is an outstanding piece of work. His vocals were pleasing and rich. His musicianship was superb. The songs seemed effortless and as he went from one into another. If you don't get this CD, blame yourself, don't "Blame Me." Let me know. Jonny Weber Blues Society of Western Pennsylvania

    I so love this CD and Ira Walker. I know you will too. Tried to figure out what my favourite tracks were, but kept playing the whole CD through. Truth is it flows so easily from track to track. Melancholy to hope and everywhere in between. I love guitar work and am not disappointed. As the tracks dance through blues, soul and rock Ira's voice is just perfect as I cannot help myself toe tapping and singing along (so glad you do not get to hear me). This will be on my player for a long while yet, maybe until the neighbours complain. I'm so happy that I've come across you & your music. God bless xxx:blush::love:
