Twelve years ago, a blues bug bit Paul Newberg. By 2005, the rock guitarist for Blameless Days and the What Four realized he couldn’t shake the itch and began to perform solo stomp-box shows. Now the infection is full blown as Newberg recently announced a fulltime dedication to the 12-bar art form. Though he uses some harmonica and traditional structure in his songs, don’t be surprised if a small dose of grungy distortion creeps into his repertoire. As much as the blues inspired his previous projects, rock riffs now add a fuller sound to his new pathos.
