Well, "Backwoods Glance" Blind Lemon's new album of folk, blues and Americana debuted on April 3 and Blind is breathing a sigh of relief. So far the feedback is excellent and various songs have garnered 8 nominations in the Indie Music Channel Awards for April 23.

You can check out videos for the various songs at: Besides band members Pistol Pete Grenell and Fiddlin' Cal Keaoola, guest musicians include Tom Cline on Dobro, Marisa Malvino on vocals and harmony, and John Pearson on cajon, djembe and percussion. CDs are being distributed through CDBaby, Amazon, iTunes and other major outlets.
