 Stevie J. Blues "Lil' Mo Love" (Official Music Video)   Song Lil' Mo Love from the new CD Back2Blues.        

Stevie J Blues' powerful new single and video "A Lil' Mo' Love" takes on hate   Mississippi guitar master Stevie J. Blues has had enough. Frustrated with nightly news drenched in violence and hate and neighborhoods struggling with crime and poverty, the smooth-voiced bluesman has launched a message of strength and unity with the searing video for his new single “A Lil’ Mo’ Love.’
The tightly constructed video, shot by veteran Mississippi visual artist J.D. Lawrence, is the perfect complement to Stevie J’s music; it is at once timeless and contemporary, cutting edge and rich in tradition.  From Back2Blues, released Nov. 2016, Mississippi Delta Records.
