Reverend K. M. Williams seamlessly fuses his classic Texas-style sound with his religious devotion to deliver a performance that is refreshingly uplifting and authentic. This Texas native began playing blues guitar at age seven after an impromptu lesson from the legendary Elmore James. In 1980, Williams converted to Christianity, and began composing independent blues spirituals for guitar and harmonica after believing to have "received divine inspiration and abilities". In 1995, Williams became an ordained minister, and began playing in local churches. 1996 marked the creation of his own Delta Blues band called "KM Williams and The Blues Train", in which Williams honed his signature Texas/Mississippi guitar style and songwriting skills. The success of this band led Williams to open for blues legends such as Robert Lockwood Junior, Little Milton, and The Holmes Brothers. With fourteen solo CD's and seven international tours under his belt, Reverend K. M. Williams continues to preach the Christian gospel through his twangy guitar licks, calming guttural voice, and southern-tinged performances which are reminiscent of simpler times.

Gina Coleman, lead singer and founder of the band Misty Blues began her blues career as a gospel and folk rock singer. After landing a role in the 1999 Williamstown Theatre Festival production of A Raisin In The Sun, she received overwhelmingly positive criticism for her voice and was thus inspired to sing classical blues. Coleman recruited her former bandmates guitarist Jason Webster and bassist Bill Patriquin of the band Cole-Connection, as well as musicians Jeff Dudziak, Benny Kohn, and Kali Baba McConnell to form Misty Blues. Together, the band pays homage to blues music of the 20's, 30's, and 40's while maintaining their roots in gospel and folk rock, creating a unique blues-fusion sound.
