Bio

Chicago Slim is a bluesman with a magnetic personality and imposing persona. With a 7-foot shadow that looms large on the Chicago skyline, this music veteran is destined to become a legend, if he isn't one already.

Slim's career began as a disciple to many of his musical heroes on Chicago's South side. He cut his teeth at the tender age of 18 as the musical director for legendary bluesman, Otis Rush. He's studied, performed and recorded with Chicago music legends Bo Diddley, Buddy Guy & Junior Wells. Homesick James, Lefty Dizz, Johnny Dollar, Magic Slim & Hubert Sumlin.

His critically acclaimed radio show, "Out Of The Blue" has been syndicated in over 60 markets nationwide. Prolific credentials as entertainer, media personality and humanitarian have helped him energize an new generation of Chicago Blues fans.

Whether squeezing a blue note out of his six-string or preaching on the day's relevant social issues, Slim does it all with a street-savvy honesty & integrity that's nearly extinct in today's climate of greed, corruption and injustice. He's Bluesman, Healer, Philosopher & Shaman, and as Bo Diddley stated so eloquently, "One of the craziest %$#@! I've ever met. He ain't from this planet."
