In "World Music" projects, we seldom get acknowledgement that the United States of America is actually part of the "world" with it's own unique ethnic traditions and styles of music. Dream Rodeo wishes to fully acknowledge that, and with this project, acknowledge the work of one of the most influential figures in American Blues, Blind Willie Johnson, who is arguably the most covered of all bluesmen. with his songs being made famous by everyone from Peter Paul and Mary, to Led Zeppelin, to Bruce Cockburn.
This album includes guest performers of great note as well, like the most recorded drummer in the world, Kenny Aronoff (John Mellencamp, Smashing Pumpkins, John Bon Jovi, the Beatles, etc), and Ivan Hampden Jr, (drummer for Luther Vandross and Beyonce, etc. ) As well as Aaron Comess, Randy Stonehill, Randy Jackson, Derek Reeves, Don Carr, Nick Bowcott, Tim Beeler, and many more.
