Studebaker John & The Hawks’ 10th CD Self-Made Man (Avanti Records) charted # 23 on the Living Blues Top 50 two weeks after its release in June. “Ride, Ride, Ride” is in regular rotation on Bill Wax’s XM Satellite Radio Bluesville channel, and the band is on a national tour that includes stops at the Salmon Arms Roots & Blues Festival in British Columbia, Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago and Stevie Ray’s in Louisville, Kentuck

Many thanks to all the DJ's who are playing Self-Made Man. It has already hit the Living Blues Radio Chart and was just released on June 13. Please continue to play on your shows so it will climb the charts! What a few have said about Self-Made Man:

Self-Made Man is terrific. Just put it on the new blues shelf with an A+. Caught John at our local club a couple of weeks ago--great show. Jeff Hayward, WMHB, Colby College, Waterville, ME

From Poland: He keeps getting better and better and that doesn't happen to often. His guitar playing with the slide on his finger is very powerfull so is his harp plying. With a tight rhythm section that makes a great CD!

It will be my pleasure to feature his music in my shows. I'm sure my listeners will enjoy it as much as I do.

Best wishes, Przemek Draheim

From Midnight Blues - the #1 internet radio show: Self-Made Man hits the road with the kind of gritty traction we’ve come to expect from the Studebaker—lots of torque with John’s own brand of raw rock guitar-sliding Blues. This new album says ‘get out of my way’--’cause I am what I am. It’s dark and edgy, with lots of shot-gun pieces with a tough background garage beat like a bar of solid metal pounding underneath you.

John’s been in the Blues music world a long time—he played Buddy Guy’s Southside Checkerboard Lounge in the late ‘60’s—and he proves that there’s a hell of a lot of strength can come out of experience. Self-Made Man is solid and powerful--and won’t leave you standing still!

From Netherlands: >Thanks a lot for the new album, John I`m listening right now, and you`re in the show next week. I`ll send the playlists. Kjell.

From Ireland: Received the Studebaker John CD today. I reckon it's his best yet. Best regards, Mike, N.E.A.R. FM. ,Dublin. Ireland

"His raw amplified canonical work recalls past masters like Little Walter and Big Walter Horton, while his slide guitar style is descended from the styles of Elmore James and Hound Dog Taylor. On top of that Studebaker John is a powerful vocalist and talented songwriter…"
