@ Michael Bloom
Michael Bloom is a Chicago-born, classically-trained guitarist, singer and songwriter of classic and original blues. From Oakland, CA to Chicago, IL, Michael’s been writing and playing the blues in one form or another for most of his life. The poetic voices of Robert Johnson, Jimmy Reed, and Mississippi John Hurt, the lyrical lines of BB King and Otis Rush, the rhythms of Muddy Waters and Little Milton all echo through his songs. When you see Michael and the Blues Prophecy testify on stage, you’ll feel his passion for performing the blues and his love for bringing it to the world.
Some of the places Michael has performed include Rosa’s Lounge, Buddy Guy’s Legends, The Kingston Mines in Chicago, the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale MS, Wild Bill’s in Memphis, Eli’s Mile High Club in Oakland CA, Starry Plow in Berkeley, CA, El Farol, Tiny’s Dine and Dance and Evangelo’s in Santa Fe NM and the historic King William IV pub in Fenstanton, England.
While in Chicago, Michael played with blues legend Mary Lane, and her band The No Static Blues Band. He also 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, with his wife, Lisa Arthur and their two fur babies, Gibson and Tiki. Michael travels regularly to perform and to live the blues.
in the press…
“...Whisper In The Wind by Michael Bloom and the Blues Prophecy contains eight searing originals by the Chicago singer/songwriter/guitarist/band leader and three perfectly chosen covers that amplify this Prophecy’s attributes...in an all-out blitz of blues-drenched rock’n’roll fury. “Brownsville” (1969) by Furry Lewis [1893-1981], “Old Man Blues” (1988) by Johnny Copeland [1937-1997] and, best of all, the closing “Dust My Broom”  by Robert Johnson [1911-1938].”
“His bag of tricks is vast, he knows how to sound like Otis Rush, but also like Albert King, marking the difference. Here he greets Furry Lewis, there he pays homage to Johnny Copeland superb album of maturity."
