The Latvian Blues Band has just concluded an agreement with the Blue Skunk Music company in Chicago on distributing the band’s music throughout the world.
Blue Skunk Music distributes blues and jazz recordings. The Latvian Blues Band can be proud of its agreement with the Chicago-based distributor because now, during the band’s 10th anniversary year, its sound will become available to fans not just in Latvia and the United States, but all across the globe.
“We know that we’ve been noticed and appreciated in the wide world of the blues, and this agreement is a major factor in our future, because it represents our ability to show ourselves to a broader audience,” the band says with satisfaction.
In August, Latvian Blues Band music will be available for purchase or download from several Internet sites, including Amazon.com and Itunes.com.
This has been a successful year for the Latvian Blues Band. It took part in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis at the beginning of 2010 — the world’s largest and most representative blues forum. Shortly thereafter, the band recorded its new album, “When the Sun Goes Down”. The album is scheduled for release in the autumn of 2010, when the band is also planning a gala concert to celebrate 10 years of Latvian Blues Band music.
