Mike Holloway and the Bottom Line

Mike Holloway, who has earned a stellar reputation backing up such artists as Magic Slim, B’nois King, and Debbie Davies, steps out to front his own band, the Bottom Line.

Known as the “southpaw from Arkansas” and influenced by such blues heavyweights as Z.Z. Hill, Jimmy Reed, and the three Kings (Albert, B.B., and Freddie), Holloway ranges from traditional Delta blues to Texas shuffles. His upside-down, left-handed guitar playing is an amazing visual addition to his sonic mastery.

This artist appears in Jubilee #504: Mike Holloway and the Bottom Line.
