Thought we would let fans know that we just found out about a nice review by Jon Slomon in Denver's Westward Magazine on Thanksgiving Day! "The title of Dr. Izzy Band's debut, Blind & Blues Bound, perfectly encapsulates this group's sound. Throughout the twelve-song disc, frontwoman Dr. Izzy, who was born in Texas with full vision but began to go blind at the age of nine, clearly has a strong affinity for the blues. On the fiery opener, "Matches Don't Burn Memories," which also features blues harmonica legend James Cotton, Dr. Izzy digs in, recalling some of Lucinda Williams's grittier efforts...While Dr. Izzy has no problem powering through the heavy blues of "Earth Bound," she's equally compelling on the slower, more soulful cuts, such as "One Last Walk."

The Dr. Izzy Band is thrilled to have been part of the Wolfman Radio Crossroads show today. We are humbled to be played along with such notable artists. Our thanks go out to FourFingers Lightning for the airplay. It seems that the song "Been a Long Time Comin" is also very popular on Jango Radio. We're pleased that so many can apparently relate to the lyrical subject of this song.
