Artist Connection Podcast

The Artist Connection Podcast has been offering long form audio interviews with artists from the past, present, and future since 2011. Hear what inspires them to get out of bed each morning and practice the craft that they love. My guests include people that I truly respect from many different backgrounds. Each episode provides a unique mix of music and conversation. Enjoy!

I am pleased to introduce you to blues vocalist Sugaray Rayford! I have been a fan of his for quite some time and I am honored to have him as  a guest on this show. His brand new album is called "Southside", and it's out now on NimoySue Records. This is his third release since 2010. I have all of his records, including the ones where he added guest vocals. Having him there makes each record that much better, and I told him so during the interview. Three new songs are featured with this episode. You won't need all three to become a fan. You will be hooked by the end of the first one! Please pick up a copy of Southside and support this talented artist. Learn more at We also discussed our mutual respect for two bluesmen that we recently lost. BB King died the day before we recorded this, and Randy Chortkoff from Delta Groove passed a couple of weeks back. They will both be missed. If you reach out to Sugaray, please let him know that you heard him here first. Enjoy!
