Hi, Ziyna Ember here. I’m in Rhet’s place at 186,000 Velocity Street™ to give you a glimpse into Eliyora Entertainment’s™ singer of Blues Music. Instead of a standard biography, I thought it would be more personal to let you get to know a bit of Rhet through her own words.
Ziyna: Hi Rhet, thanks for having me!
Rhet: Hi Ziyna, thanks for coming. I just made honey lemonade, want some?
Ziyna: Sure. Well, throw in some Southern Comfort, warm it up and you’ve got my grandma’s hot toddy recipe!
Rhet: [winks] Yup.
Ziyna: So Blues are your thing. electric blues, or ?
Rhet: Nope. I’ll leave the electric blues to Rese. I’m just Delta Blues, a voice and a guitar in most cases.
Ziyna: Really. Don’t hear many new artists taking that route and just doing the early style. Why did you?
Rhet: The simpler the better. It’s what I like, it’s the beginning of everything. I want to reach all the way back to the beginning, in American music, anyway. The Delta Blues and Appalacia are where I end up. And the blues are much older than anyone I’ve read gives credit for. Yeah, the Delta Blues came straight over from West Africa to the Southern US, but there’s way more to the story, and it reaches back way further than that, perhaps to the beginning of humanity — I’ll leave sharing that story up to Sherese Timeless, Eliyora Entertainment’s™ composer/producer. I know she’s working on writing it on the side, don’t know when she’ll be done. This journey we’ve taken together led to some deep discoveries — I’ll say that.
.Ziyna: Intriguing. Well, now I have a million questions, but I guess I need to aim them at Sherese Timeless, ’cause you’re not going to answer them are you. So, okay, Delta Blues, let’s focus there.
Rhet: Yeah. I’ve released five originals so far, but Sherese Timeless has already written about 15 more for me. I’ll be recording those as soon as the dust settles around here. It’s pretty crazy. I just try to stay out of the way.
Most of the songs are just my voice, a resophonic, with an occasional harmonica, and your odd old-time clarinet thrown in. I really appreciate how simple they are.
Ziyna: So if you had to pick one Delta Blues song to hear if you were stranded on a desert island, what would it be?
Rhet: Right now, the first to pop into my head is Blind Willie Johnson’s “Soul of a Man,” but it may be another in a minute, there are so many I admire.
Ziyna: I think that song is under-appreciated — good choice. Can you tell me why?
Rhet: Well, who knows how we humans really work, but I would guess because it deals with the simplest, yet deepest, question we can ask on this earth.
Ziyna: True. Well, Rhet, you’re an interesting one, and maybe not so simple. We really look forward to hearing your songs. Are there some silly blues in there, too?
Rhet: Sure. Life’s too short to not be able to laugh at yourself. Blues are the best way I know to dust off.
Ziyna: There you go. Well, we’ll look forward to dusting off with you! Thanks for the almost hot toddy!
Rhet: Thanks Ziyna. Here’s some to take home — you can add whatever kind of comfort you want. Appreciate you coming by.
