Chris James and Patrick Rynn / The Blue Four
Chris James and Patrick Rynn are at the forefront of today’s traditional Blues movement.
They've been playing together since 1990, proudly dedicating their musical collaboration to the high-energy sound of real, unadulterated Chicago Blues. They lead their own widely acclaimed band, and have toured the world playing behind some of the greatest Blues legends in the field.

Their 2008 debut CD Stop and Think About It, was nominated for a 2009 Blues Music Award and won a 2009 Blues Blast Music Award for Best New Artist Debut and spread their names far and wide. “Mister Coffee,” a standout original from the album, was nominated for a Blues Blast Award-Best Blues Song and won third-place in the Independent Music Awards, where Chris and Patrick were nominated for a People’s Choice Award.

Gonna Boogie Anyway, their 2010 album for Earwig Records, stirred up a similarly heightened level of critical buzz as Patrick has now earned Blues Music Award nominations as Best Blues Bassist for four consecutive years.

The duo’s latest Earwig album Barrelhouse Stomp is as firmly rooted in traditional Chicago Blues as its acclaimed predecessors. Yet the duo continues to evolve and take chances in the studio. This is tough, real-deal electric blues to party to, to dance to, to sit down and savor. Barrelhouse Stomp makes it clear once more that Chris James and Patrick Rynn rate with the finest traditional Bluesmen on the planet.
