“This is what I call ‘Living Room Blues,’ says Fred Hostetler about his latest album, Fred’s Blue Chair Blues. “Acoustic blues with guitar and vocal. Stripped-down, unplugged, and recorded at home in my living room. Eight original songs and the Jimmy Reed classic “Bright Lights Big City.” Whatever you may think of it, I find it intimate and refreshing during this time of Covid-19 to see artists performing in their kitchen, barn, patio, bedroom, etc.”
Fred Hostetler is an American musician, author, and songwriter who founded the blues-rock band Blue By Nature along with Karen Lawrence and Rick Dufay (ex-Aerosmith guitarist). Blue By Nature’s albums were a CD-genre jumping Americana romp through the swamp lands of blues-rock and their live shows were highlighted by singer Lawrence’s unique, raspy vocal style. During their heyday, Blue By Nature recorded with famed producer, Jack Douglas (John Lennon, Cheap Trick, Patti Smith, Aerosmith).
