Hi, I am working with Mitch Kashmar and The Pontiax, an acclaimed blues artist and over 30 year veteran in the blues scene.

The band just released their new single “The Petroleum Blues,” a timely response to the mounting oil crisis.

You can listen to and download the song here: http://www.mileshighproductions.com//images/tracks/m_kashmir/petroleum_blues.mp3.

The song is one of two newly recorded songs from their recently reissued classic album, 100 Miles To Go.

Here’s a sampling of the song’s lyrics -
“100 dollars just to fill your car
I hope you don't have to drive too far
Petroleum Blues I've got the Petroleum Blues
How much money're we gonna lose?
Petroleum Blues

We're spillin n drillin down by New Orleans
The beach is black but the money's green
Petroleum Blues
The Petroleum Blues
You can't win, only gonna lose
Petroleum Blues”

I’d love to hear what you think of song.
-Lauren

Closing my eyes made me think of hearing you belt them out at Sugacanes! Those were great times!
