Sherman Robertson is already considered a young master of zydeco, hard-swinging Texas electric blues, R&B and swampy Louisiana blues. Robertson often surprises audiences with his ability to play R&B, zydeco and blues with a rock edge. ?I use that driving, road-cooking type zydeco groove, and put blues on top of it,? says Robertson. It?s basically rhythm and feel. ?In June 2000, Robertson played at the Pioneer Valley Blues Festival in Massachusetts. Alligator president, Bruce Iglauer, was in the crowd. ?He was always good,? he says, "but when I saw him in June he was on fire. He ruled the stage, had the audience in the palm of his hand, and his just plain physical showmanship reminded me of Albert Collins. As soon as he walked off the stage I started talking about signing him. He?s got that Texas energy, great guitar chops, and is a wonderful, soulful singer."?
?Some of the best Texas soul-blues anyone could hope for. Potent singing and sizzling guitar, 'Sherman Robertson is one of the most important artist in blues.? ? Blues Revue
