Michael Bloom and the Blues Prophecy:

Michael Bloom is a Chicago-born, classically-trained guitarist, singer and songwriter of classic and original blues. From Oakland, CA to Chicago, IL, he’s honed his style and music. While in Chicago, Michael played with blues legend, Mary Lane, and recorded tracks for his new CD, "Whisper in the Wind". He has recently been accepted as a ReverbNation Curated artist and will be featured on the ReverbNation homepage in July. Michael now resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and travels regularly to Chicago for the blues.

Mary Lane: A longtime staple of Chicago's West Side blues circuit, singer Mary Lane was born November 23, 1935 in Clarendon, Arkansas. After honing her skills in local juke joints in the company of Howlin' Wolf, Robert Nighthawk, Little Junior Parker and James Cotton, Lane relocated to Chicago in 1957; backed by Morris Pejoe, she soon cut her debut single "You Don't Want My Lovin' No More" for the Friendly Five label. A favorite among peers for her dulcet tones, she nevertheless did not record again for several decades, remaining virtually unknown outside of the Chicago blues faithful; finally, in the early 1990s, Lane recorded a handful of tracks for the Wolf label, leading to 1997's full-length Appointment with the Blues.
