Brother Yusef is a master solo blues guitarist and passionate vocalist. His raw and authentic performances have been honed over thirty years into a style he calls "fattback blues," for its rich mix of Delta, Chicago, and Texas blues, alongside a hard-driving Louisiana stomp. With many influences, he takes audiences on an exuberant musical journey, from a backwoods juke joint to the fiery emotions of the sanctified church. Brother Yusef has gained worldwide recognition through performances at music festivals, dance events and concerts; he was a featured performer at the Downtown Disney Resort in Anaheim, California (2001 - 2016), and has released 7 albums, including his most recent release, I Got The Blues: 10 Years Of Fattback Blues 1999 to 2009. Brother Yusef approaches the blues from a musical, spiritual and social context. He says, "For African Americans, blues has been about survival, healing, and freedom, and I'm pleased to be a part of this tradition."
