Monuments in Ruin, Ch. 184

This week we return with a companion episode for the previous gospel and blues show. Episode 184 keeps that vibe shifting forward to begin tapping into some darker lyric content and slowly bring in a little bit of a rock element to really solidify the overall sadness and emotion that blues can deliver. New show every Monday at 9pm Eastern.
