Home... Cookin! - Featuring Elmo Bailey

Little Apple Records has finally released the debut album by Dave 'Elmo' Bailey, the husky-voiced blues veteran who is best known in the Chicago area as the king of the Windy City blues singers. This highly-sought after male vocalist'"who doesn’t just feel the blues, he lives it', played regularly with Felix and the Cats at Buddy Guy’s blues club, Legends’ during his performing career in Chi-Town. The blues veteran worked with Les Paul in New York City at the famed Iridium, several television commercials while in Chicago, and worked with guitarist and songwriter Felix Reyes. He’s also performed with harmonica player Kim Wilson, and spent time with guitarist/songwriter Sumpter Bruton and the Jive Jumpers in Dallas, Texas. Bailey’s style is reminiscent of big Joe Turner, as well as his other influences, Ray Charles, T-Bone Walker, Louis Jordan, and Little Willie John. A traditional blues artist who came from a family of musicians, Bailey recently relocated to Kansas City, Missouri where he is featured regularly with harmonica player Lee McBee and the Confessors. Elmo currently leads the blues band, The Nortons, and can be seen and heard throughout the Midwest heating up the mike with his blistering blues vocals.
