Mato Nanji, longtime front man of Native American band Indigenous, makes an effort to improve his craft with each record. His playing and singing have never been better than on his 11th commercial outing “Gray Skies”. On this fourth CD for Blues Bureau International, Mato once again forges ahead, pushing himself to new personal bests.

The group’s music is motivated not only by blues and rock greats, such as Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and B.B. King, but also by the social issues and cultural bonds of the Mato’s Nakota roots. They have won Native American Music Awards for blues recording of the year as well as artists of the year. Mato has also picked up a devoted audience as a featured member of the annually sold out Hendrix Experience Tour since 2002.
Jonathon Boogie Long
Jonathon Boogie Long
From Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Jonathon “Boogie” Long was born with the blues coursing through his veins. Brought up in a Southern Baptist community, he first picked up the guitar at the age of six, teaching himself old gospel songs. Years later, a teenage Long found himself playing weekly gigs at blues clubs and events around town. At fourteen, he left school to lay down his roots touring with local legends Henry Turner Jr. & Flavor from 2003 to 2005. Additionally, he has toured with Chris Duarte, Kenny Wayne and Tyree Neal on the Chitlin’ Circuit. Boogie has shared the stage with standout musicians such as Dr. John, Rockin’ Dopsie, Monte Montgomery, Ellis Hall, Kenny Neal, Larry Garner, Henry Gray, Lil Ray Neal, and Lou Marini of the Blues Brothers Band.

In 2011, Boogie Long was crowned Guitar Center’s “King of the Blues” from a field of over 4,000 contestants, in the competition for #1 Unsigned Blues Guitarist in America (bit.ly/o013s6). Soon after, Boogie was sought out to film 2013’s “Boogie Blues Magic,” an instructional three-DVD set on which he shares his original tricks for learning fundamental blues styles (www.boogiebluesmagic.com). On another recent project, Boogie co-starred in the independent film, “We Be Kings,” a fictional story about an elderly couple that owns a juke joint in the Mississippi Delta.

Boogie currently fronts his own blues/soul trio, The Blues Revolution. His soul- stomping vocals and monster guitar shredding, paired with bluesy songwriting chops make his powerhouse performances a “must see.” In April 2013, Boogie was tapped by B.B. King to support his four week tour. Also, he was given a prime slot at the New Orleans Jazz Fest Blues Stage! Quickly ascending from Baton Rouge to the main stage, Boogie Long is on track with his lifetime goal of championing blues music and its roots. His debut record was released in April of 2013.
