David and Phil's first album together. This all original collaboration highlights their love of the Blues and the history and emotions they have acquired in over 30 years of songwriting and performances
David Pinsky and Phil Newton have been a major part of the Southern Oregon Blues scene for over thirty years and have joined forces as a dynamic Blues duo. Longtime friends, they began this new chapter by playing local venues and concerts discovering the joy of sharing their blues on a whole different level.
David's propulsive guitar, welded with Phil's harp chops, provide a steady groove reminiscent of the 60’s Chicago style duets. The two on occasion will also employ a twin harp attack. Both men bring decades of vocal experience, with David concentrating on his original compositions and Phil interpreting blues and roots. "Over the Moon" is an all original collaboration that highlights the duos fresh songwriting skills as well as great vocal and instrumental moments.
David and Phil will represent the Cascade Blues Association in Memphis at the 2015 International Blues Challenge by becoming their regional winner this year and performing at Portland's Waterfront Blues Fest in July.
