World boogie is coming! Inspired by other Mississippi folks R.L. Burnside and Mississippi Fred McDowell, RL Boyce started playing music as a child drumming on a foot tub and slowly moved on to playing the guitar. His first recording was when he was 15 on a track with his uncle, Othar Turner.

Sounds a lot like a more boogie-ing RL Burnside, really. Not as electric as Burnside, but sounds good with the band backing him. Duel drums on two-thirds of the tracks. Plays with his usual cast of friends: Luther Dickinson (guitar), Lightnin’ Malcom (guitar), and Calvin Jackson and Cedric Burnside (drums). Good ol’ blues sounds on a bluesman’s long awaited full length debut. Legit..
