Elwood’s Blues Breaker: HowellDevine “Let You Go”
The hardcore blues trio HowellDevine consists of Pete Devine on percussion, Joshua Howell on guitars, harp, and vocals, and Joe Kyle Junior on the upright bass. They erupted out of Oakland, California, a few years back, with their own interpretation of old school, gut-bucket blues. Chris Strachwitz, the founder of the legendary roots label, Arhoolie Records, was knocked out by them. And HowellDevine was Arhoolie’s first straight ahead blues record in over 25 years. Now they are back – with more of their unique covers, and their own original songs – songs that sound like they could have been made back in the 1930’s. So get out of that chair. And put down that Mason jar of shine. This is HowellDevine.
