Big Hands Rhythm & Blues Band

Big Hands Rhythm & Blues Band

Big Hands Rhythm & Blues Band, out of New York City, combines the authenticity of Chess Records era artists like Howlin' Wolf and John Lee Hooker with the reckless abandon of groups like The Sonics and The MC5.

Formed by working and touring sidemen who have played with Sting, Elle King, Lesley Gore, Ingrid Michelson, and Sesame Street, Big Hands' debut album brings together both originals and lesser known songs from the Chess era that will move body and spirit to the blues.

Mary-Elaine Jenkins

Mary-Elaine Jenkins’ music sounds like a premonition. Like sweat and perfume.  Bourbon and salt water. Spanish moss on ruins. A product of her upbringing amidst the canopy of her Lowcountry family tree, Mary-Elaine carries herself as if she had never left the humidity of the coast. But she did. First Washington DC, then Spain, and now Brooklyn. Venturing far from home, time and space removed from her roots have further distilled Mary-Elaine’s distinctly Southern charm.

Arriving in New York City in 2013, Mary-Elaine played in venues all over town and surrounded herself with a creative network that would eventually include producer / engineer Thom Beemer. Working together out of Good Child Music Studios, they were joined by Cat Popper (Ryan Adams), Lawson White (My Brightest Diamond, Tony Trischka), JJ Appleton, and Dave Hassell, to make a record as well traveled as it is rooted in the musical traditions of the Southern coast. Her debut album, Hold Still, was released in September 2018 via Good Child Music.
