With a new album (BlueSoul) hot off the press and fresh off the road from shows in Chicago, Dov Hammer and the Blues power return to Shablul for another dose of their hipshaking, heartbreaking, earthquaking BLUES.
Reviewing the band’s last show at Shablul, Ayellet Dekel wrote in “Midnight east”:
Dov Hammer is a blues singer-songwriter and harmonica player with an exuberant, compelling stage presence. Blue Soul, his new solo album, is a journey through songs of experience, reflecting different musical influences, from Chicago Blues to hip hop. Surging with energy, the songs take the hard times and heartache and turn them into rhythms that get your body swaying. The lyrics tell of a mind and heart trying to take the rough days, the confusion and the beauty of this world and make sense of it all, and as Hammer’s song says: “Make it count.” Seeing Hammer perform live is something that must be experienced, watching him move with ease between harmonica and song is magical!
