Blues producer turned performer The Reverend Shawn Amos has released a video for his track You’re Gonna Miss Me (When I Get Home).

It’s taken from his debut album The Reverend Shawn Amos Loves You, released last year.

The Grammy-nominated exec aims to propel the blues into the mainstream, following the work of artists including Gary Clark Jr and Keb’ Mo’.

Amos tells Pop Matters: “We wanted to capture the spirit of our live shows, while bringing the blues to the pop culture conversation.”

He describes the result as “this perfect world where roadhouse blues meets old-school Hollywood musicals” and adds: “I hope folks dig it and it moves them to dive deeper into this great American music.”

He’s currently touring the US.
