Homemade Jamz Blues Band
Youngest Blues Band in America…the trifecta of blues!
“In my 82 years, I’ve never seen something musically…so remarkable. These young kids have got energy,
talent and do the blues proud with their own flavor. I believe they’ve got a GREAT future ahead.”
– B.B. King
HOMEMADE JAMZ BLUES BAND got its start in Baumholder, Germany, when
military dad Renaud Perry came home with a Stratocaster replica (guitar) and
young Ryan, 8, discovered it. A week later, Ryan composed a short instrumental
tune and performed it at his school’s talent show. By the time the family returned to
Tupelo, Mississippi, Ryan had found his passion…music.
After listening to B.B. King, Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan then trying his best
to emulate them Ryan emerged a blues artist with skyrocketing talent. Two years
later, little brother Kyle, 9, wanted in on the action. After first trying piano, Kyle
settled in on the bass learning for himself the nuances of the instrument and its role
in the blues sound. Soon he was out on the concert circuit performing with his
brother. Not long afterwards seven-year-old Taya locked in on the blues vibe.
Already playing tambourine, Taya situated herself on the stool behind a drum set
and in two months was holding down the beats behind her big brothers Ryan and
Kyle. Ryan’s gruff vocals, visceral stinging guitar licks, Kyle’s solid rumble and Taya’s
cool-bare-footed stomp have electrified millions around the world. Making
HOMEMADE JAMZ BLUES BAND “a trifecta” in the blues world!
The HOMEMADE JAMZ BLUES BAND has performed throughout the Mississippi
Delta, up and down Beale Street, international blues festivals and cruises. The Band
has been featured in all major media: NPR, PBS, CBS Sunday Morning, BET,
international blues magazines, several local papers, and others.
In 2006, the HOMEMADE JAMZ BLUES BAND won the 3rd Annual MS Delta Blues
Society of Indianola’s Blues Challenge, and became the youngest band to compete in
the International Blues Challenge, in 2007. Out of 93 bands, HOMEMADE JAMZ took
2nd place, their first time in a major competition. Fred Litwin, president of Northern
Blues Music record label signed the band and produced their first CD “Pay Me No
Mind.” The CD brilliantly blends the gritty slickness of Chicago blues sound; and, the
earthy soulfulness of Mississippi jook-joint blues into a masterful display of
hauntingly raw natural talents.
The HOMEMADE JAMZ BLUES BAND performs the blues with the confidence of
knowing their Mississippi history, firsthand, redirecting the love, hard times,
betrayal and strife into their music. How do they do it? They “connect” with the
ancestral sounds…it are hardwired within them. They know the blues…it comes
naturally from their souls. Their second CD, “The Game” is scheduled for global
release December 1, 2010.
