Michael Burks is definitely one of the artists that are attracting much attention from those who are part of the global Blues panorama and even from those who aren’t. With his latest album, “Iron Man” from Alligator Records, Michael has just received 3 nominations for Grammy Awards 2009 as Best Contemporary Male Blues Artist, Best Blues Guitarist and Best Rock/Blues Album of the Year!! Michael Burks is definitely a man of the Blues, totally dedicated to blues just like his whole family. Michael Burks’ father was an exceptional bluesman, a musician who accompanied stars as Lightning Hopkins and Sonny Boy Williamson. Michael's music is as big as he is, that's 130 pounds in the fullest tradition of great guitar black men. Iron Man has all the massiveness of electric blues and all the expressive power of rock. There are transitions that graze the southern blues, moments when the guitar surpasses everything, and drag the songs in full "live" spirit (which is the true nature of Michael Burks). To understand the status of the electric blues today, one must absolutely listen to the latest record of the great "Iron Man", Michael Burks.
