Selwyn Birchwood stumbled upon the blues at age 17 at a Buddy Guy concert in Orlando. After witnessing the raw energy and power the music created, he decided to pursue music. Ever since, Birchwood has worked to convey the same intensity and feeling of the blues greats by honing his skills.
Following a successful national tour with Texas Bluesman Sonny Rhodes, Selwyn and his band took first place in 2009′s Central Florida Blues Challenge. This win offered them a chance to compete in the International Blues Challenge held in Memphis, Tenn., where they finished in the top four of the “Beale Street Blues Kings” semi-finals competition.
Selwyn is backed by a rock-solid rhythm section that is as bluesy as it gets. Huff Wright (Bass) and Calvin Craddock (Drums) are seasoned veterans and no strangers to the road. They have toured with many notable artists including Lucky Peterson, Bill Wharton, Joey Gilmore and Ace Moreland, among others, providing the perfect canvas for Selwyn’s unique brand of swampy, Florida blues!
