Stephen Dale Petit

In the age of the TV talent show and the corporate pop cabal, Stephen Dale Petit is leading the resistance.

He’s a man on a mission, sworn to establish the blues as the dominant force in popular culture.

He’s a riot-starter and rabble-rouser, blowing out speakers with the “thrusting hooligan anthems” (Mojo) of his acclaimed studio work and igniting a new venue each night with his “raw, fresh energy” (The Times).

He’s a genre spokesman and bluesman savant, whose BLUnivErSity lectures reboot the old masters for the modern age, while rallying new recruits to the cause. No wonder that Guitar & Bass cited Petit as “proof positive that the blues can move forward in the 21st century”.
