Best Self-Produced CD!

Lumbard-BSPCDWe are excited to announce Blues In A Bottle won The Blues Foundation’s Best Self-Produced CD at the 2016 International Blues Challenge in Memphis! Friend and fellow Iowan, Matt Woods‘ excellent album, Sawdust & Gasoline, was also among the top five finalists in the competition.

In 2005, The Blues Foundation introduced the Best Self-Produced CD (BSPCD) contest as another way to celebrate artists. Where the IBC has been the measure of excellence for a band’s live performance, the BSPCD title honors musicians that have achieved excellence in the studio. In addition to complementing the live component of the International Blues Challenge weekend, this contest further emphasizes the critical role of affiliated societies in the Blues world. BSPCD entries may only be submitted by affiliated blues societies in order to support and foster local blues. The CDs are evaluated on: (1) musical performance; (2) audio quality; (3) cover art and design; and (4) credits and liner notes.
