Reco Jefferson

Characterized by its lyrics, bass lines, and instrumentation, the Blues originated in the Deep South of the United States in the 1860s. Early Blues frequently took the form of a loose narrative, often relating to the racial discrimination and other challenges experienced by African-Americans.

Even though times change and music genres that evolved from the Blues are the ones ruling the music scene today, there is one person trying to make the old school cool again. His name is Reco Jefferson.

Reco Jefferson grew up in Mississippi and New Jersey, where his grandmother (a passionate Delta Blues lover) instilled a love for Blues in his heart. She was the one who introduced him to, as Jefferson explains, one of the most incredible pieces of music artistry ever.

For Jefferson, the Blues have a weirdly easy way of telling painful, deep, and poignant stories. As he points out, the Blues’ ability to channel pain through music and change it into something light is what drew him to it.

Reco Jefferson is someone who’s always searched for an unwalked path. That’s another reason he fell in love with Soul and the Blues. As he explains, improvisation plays a large part in creating a great Blues song. Jefferson’s music is unlike today’s music, but it doesn’t necessarily sound like the”old” Blues either. His music is a unique fusion of the past, present, and future. 

However, if there’s one characteristic that Jefferson’s music shares with the music of Blues legends such as Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, and B.B. King, it’s the source of his music. Just like those legends who poured their pain and hearts into their songs, Jefferson masterfully blends his emotions into awe-inspiring tunes that are truly music for ears.
