Synopsis

Amazon.com
Recorded when the Boston-based guitarist was merely 16, These Blues Are Mine sounds more seasoned than a debut release should, especially from someone so young. Mike Welch has chops, no question; what's astounding is that while there's a fair bit of noodling on this album, it fits the music, instead of flying above it in some sort of technique-ridden stratosphere. It helps that Welch's backing band is made up of seasoned professionals who stay with him all the way through, and that his material is so solid; "Honest Love" (written in conjunction with guitarist George Leroy Lewis, as were several other songs on the album) in particular is surprisingly mature. Overall, this is a very strong debut that makes a great argument against dismissing Welch as yet another blues wunderkind--he's definitely one to watch in the future. --Genevieve Williams

"Forget the cheesy cover photo, this is really a good blues album. The band puts together a good combination of tunes in modern blues/rock style as well as more simple arrangements."
