Zack Linton is a young guitar player who has been playing the blues since he was 8 years old. His band is called the Zack Linton Trio, and it has its musical foundations in the blues, though covering a range of musical genres from acoustic slide guitar, Texas & Chicago electric blues, rock, funk and jazz . The rhythm section of Joseph on bass and Don on drums, both of whom are veteran's with more than 20 years musical experience, provide groove and foundations to the music.
The Zack Linton trio has been together for more than a year, performing at parties, blues clubs and hotels, and playing blues and rock classics such as SRV, Jimi Hendrix, BB King, Eric Clapton, as well as writing and performing originals, which they hope to record as the first release.

Making a welcome return to the Perth Blues Club, the blues and roots music duo Joe Filisko and Eric Noden leave an unforgettable impression. Their jaw-dropping virtuosity enables them to create more layers of sound and feeling than most full bands can summon, and both are high-energy, ultra-rhythmic performers. The collective result — in both their live shows and their recordings — is a charged, dramatic performance that is simulataneously powerful yet sophisticatedly subtle.
Just a few short years after their first meeting, Filisko and Noden are displaying their compelling musicality on the world stage. They've performed at the legendary Chicago Blues Festival, the Paramount Blues Festival in Grafton, Wisconsin (where some of the greatest of the early blues recordings were made); Sweden's Eslov Blues Festival; and the Festival Ecaussines in Belgium. The duo also recorded the theme song for the "Sweet Folk Chicago" on the legendary Chicago radio station WFMT. Joe and Eric are expert practitioners of harmonica and guitar styles that defined the blues in its earliest days but are now all too rarely heard. Both of these standout performers also teach and make it a point to share the insights they've gained from two lifetimes of deep research into the history of the music.
Joe Filisko and Eric Noden's latest recording, "On the Move", which follows "Missed Train Blues" and "I.C. Special", features 12 knockout original tunes that demonstrate how they are using their mastery of classic styles to create an exhilarating, new approach to the blues. The recordings of Filisko and Noden document their joint journey from total immersion in the richest and most complex classic blues stylings to vibrant, original, 21st-century music that moves the blues forward. Each performer brings unique qualities to the duo.
