On its new release, “Way Back Home,” the Backtrack Blues Band has delivered an exciting harp and guitar-infused album that really hits the mark! The group has been one of Florida’s leading original blues acts for decades, and those years of performing have paid big dividends on this record. The solid grooves, stellar guitar, electrifying harmonica, and vocals make this CD one of the best blues releases of 2016. Reminiscent of the sounds of Paul Butterfield and the early Fabulous Thunderbirds, the songs on this record are true electric blues with lots of soul and energy.

Backtrack has won three consecutive Tampa Bay Music Awards for “Best Blues Band” and has performed at festivals and concerts around the world with blues music legends like Stevie Ray Vaughn, B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Gregg Allman, John Lee Hooker, Johnny Winter, and others. “Way Back Home” marks the band’s fifth album, and the critics have proclaimed it the band’s best work.

"On "Way Back Home" Kid Royal's beautifully constructed guitar solos add layers of complexity to the band's sound , serving as a counterpoint to the vibrant harp tones from Sonny Charles. On "Tell your Daddy" Charles boasts a harty vocal and a killer guitar solo from Kid Royal. Charles delivers one of his strongest vocal performances on "Your Funeral, My Trial" utilizing his full tone on harp to great effect ....while Kid Royal's efforts leave an indelible impression." click here to read entire review

"Hurtling into opener "Goin' To Eleuthera", Backtrack Blues Band rarely let up on the energy or passion. And they have the tunes to carry with them: "Tell Your Daddy" is prone to pristine blues rock wailing, "Rich Man Blues" is all about passion racked retro bliss and the cover of "Checkin' On My Baby' gathers a veritable blues harmonica storm. Terrifyingly good!" click here to read entire review

"Way Back Home is their latest, and I suggest you insulate the walls and hoist cement blocks around the speakers 'cause the quintet comes barreling at you right out the gate. Frontman Sonny Charles possesses a classically tart blues voice, charged up with grit and sass tinged with a dram of vinegar, and wields a mean harmonica in the Little Walter school. The band in fact was dubbed after Walter’s "Backtrack" and kicks a rompin' stompin' combo of Chicago and Texas blues." click here to read entire review

—Mark Tucker, Sept. 15, 2016

"The new release from the Backtrack Blues Band is a highly entertaining collection of mostly original tracks of traditional blues. The songs they deliver are individual gems, with a welcome balance of stellar musicianship, story, and style ! All together, they form a solid album that will only benefit from repeat listenings. The blues have never sounded so fun!" click here to read entire review

"This is an album well - deserving of a Blues Music Award. The musicianship is flawless, the arrangements are superb, the vocals are first- rate, and the tunes are all played professionally , with no showboating and no egos getting in the way" click here to read entire review
