CANADIAN BLUES SPOTLIGHT w. James Doran
on Mark Stenzler’s BLUES ZEPPELIN, Bern Switzerland
www.facebook.com/BluesZeppelin

Nov 22 – 9-11 am EDT (3-5 pm Swiss time)

This week’s featured artist – JEROME GODBOO www.jeromegodboo.com

Jerome was born in Victoria BC. He fell in love with the Blues and learned harmonica then moved east and launched his career in Toronto in the mid 1980’s when he formed The Phantoms. They became known as one of the best Blues Rock bands on the circuit with their high energy shows and Jerome’s “Jim Morrison” style harp playing and lead vocals. In 1992 after The Phantoms folded he started a solo career touring and recording with some of Canada’s best over the next decade including Jeff Healey, Dutch Mason, Ronnie Hawkins, Jack de Keyzer as well as American greats like James Cotton, Pinetop Perkins and Levon Helm. In 2013 Jerome released “Sanctuary City” which earned much critical acclaim. A year later he won the prestigious Lee Oskar Harmonica Player Of The Year Award at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis. Jerome is one of Canada’s most talented, eclectic and entertaining Blues artists. He and his great band – Shawn Kellerman on lead guitar (Mel Brown, Lucky Peterson), Eric Schenkman on baritone guitar (Spin Doctors) and Gary Craig on drums (Blackie & The Rodeo Kings, Colin Linden) are currently working on a new album as we speak.

CANADIAN BLUES SPOTLIGHT with James Doran is a 15 minute feature on some of Canada’s best Blues artists broadcast and streamed on Mark Stenzler’s BLUES ZEPPELIN
