Mark & Jill to Release CD on Caffe Lena Live Stream

Upstate New York bluesman Mark Tolstrup and his dynamic partner, sultry Texan vocalist Jill Burnham are back at Caffe Lena for a CD Release show on August 1, 8 pm. They were onstage at the Caffè in January when they recorded their fiery live performance in front of an appreciative crowd. 

Produced and recorded by Joel Moss the album Mark & Jill Sing the Blues is a testament to the duo’s onstage chemistry of Mark’s love for unfiltered, raw, emotional blues and Jill’s soulful Texas smoke. 

Mark and Jill meld their vision and talent for a taste of New Orleans meets Austin. This is where the Delta meets the Rio Grande. Over a haunting slide guitar their voices soar and blend in harmony. Mark and Jill bring a fresh original interpretation to the earliest roots of the blues. Their original songs deal with both the hard realities of life and the joys of being alive. They are the winners of the Capital Region Blues Network competition and they competed in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis January 28.
