Reverend Shawn Amos

The Reverend Shawn Amos has released a video for his version of Joliet Bound.

It’s taken from the blues producer turned performer’s debut album The Reverend Shawn Amos Loves You, released last year, and follows the launch of a promo for You’re Gonna Miss Me (When I Get Home).

Amos, a Grammy nominee, has stated he wants to help raise the profile of the genre he loves. He recently said: “We wanted to bring the blues to the pop culture conversation. I hope folks dig it and it moves them to dive deeper into this great American music.”

He’s nearing the end of a run of North American dates.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
