None More Blue celebrates Misty Blues‘ 10th album together. All of the original compositions on this album were written during the pandemic and sheds light on the creative connections they were able to maintain in a primarily virtual and remote environment. The early single release from the album, Nothing To Lose, has taken the Roots Music Contemporary Blues Charts by storm. The official album release date is 2/14/21.
“As a Blues harmonica player and singer for over fifty years I think I can honestly say that I know a good song when I hear one. In ‘Nothing to Lose’ Gina Coleman and Misty Blues have created a song that grabs the listener in the first measure and doesn’t let them go until the final note. After many years of dedicated hard work Misty Blues is the band to beat.”
