I've been playing blues and ragtime since I was fifteen. Some of the songs have only me, multitracked. Others are by the Phantoms of the Barrelhouse.

What they're saying:
" Barrelhouse Solly delivers like the Great Shouters from Golden Age Of Rythm & Blues!!!"
RJ Mischo 2006

"You have an awesome Voice and play some good Harp." Kenny Blue Ray 2006
Why this name?
Well...It's not a band name, it's my nom de guerre. It sounded good to me and I got tired of L. C. Calamese.
Do you play live?
N. California
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
New methods of distribution always change things. You'd never be able to hear this garbage so easily if it weren't for the internet.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Only if the money were right.
Your influences?
Joe Turner, Willie McTell, Blind Boy Fuller, Robert Johnson, Peetie Wheatstraw, Lotte Lenya, Noel Coward, Joe Hill Louis.
Favorite spot?
Oakland, CA
Equipment used:
Guitar, harmonica, and self-designed self-made kazoo.
Anything else...?
It's never too late to do something your parents didn't want you to do. When that time comes Barrelhouse Solly will be there for you. He cares.
