Gerome Durham

Blues After Dark

Milwaukee bluesman Gerome Durham continues his long-running association with writer/producer/multi-instrumentalist Johnny Rawls, finding room for both grown-up slice-of-life narratives and party-ready, tasty guitar licks. Durham's voice provides the most compelling draw. Neither resonantly bellicose nor given to gimmickry, it's a lived-in, elderly baritone suited well to his basic tales of no-good women, doing women good, watching women dance, partying and home-state pride (he's a Mississippi transplant). And if the lyrics don't always rhyme, neither does life, right?
