Biography
M.C. Records is proud to announce that Voyage by contemporary blues harmonica sensation Sugar Blue will be released on April 29. The album will be all originals except for one Ray Charles cover. Voyage is full of what makes Sugar Blue and his band so special; passionate song-writing, tight arrangements and of course Sugar Blue's out of this world harmonica playing.

"One of the foremost harmonica blowers in all of Modern blues..."- Rolling Stone

"...an extravagantly lyrical harmonica player" -
New York Times

Sugar Blue has played and recorded with musicians ranging from Willie Dixon to Stan Getz to Frank Zappa to Johnny Shines to Bob Dylan, he is perhaps best known for his signature riff and solo on the Rolling Stones' hit "Miss You." Sugar would eventually record on three Rolling Stones albums.

Born James Whiting - he was raised in Harlem, New York, where his mother was a singer and dancer at the fabled Apollo Theater. He spent his childhood among the musicians and show people who knew his mother, including the great Billie Holiday, and decided that he wanted to be a performer. Sugar Blue began his career as a street musician and made his first recordings in 1975 with legendary blues figures Brownie McGhee and Roosevelt Sykes.

2016 will be a banner year for Sugar Blue with his first studio recording coming out in five years, a world-wide tour and appearing in a new movie. Sugar Blue will be in the film "Sidemen, A Long Road To Glory." It premiered at the 2016 SXSW Film Festival. Other musicians involved in the project include Bonnie Raitt, Greg Allman, Derek Trucks, Joe Bonamassa and Johnny Winter.
