The Blues is an integral part of American music culture, it is one of the few genres that originated wholly in the US and to this day some of the best blues music still comes from the US.  The Blues got its start at the turn of the century in the deep south and it originated in the African American community.

The blues is made up of simple songs that are sung with immense conviction.  It can transport you to a different time and place and the emotions in the songs can take your cares away.  Blues is more than music it is a feeling and it is very much a state of mind.  The songs are about loss, pain and suffering and it takes more than a good voice to sing the blues.
