Brother Yusef has been described as a master solo guitarist, as well as a uniquely passionate vocalist.  His performances are as raw, honest, and real as the genre has ever aspired to be.  Honed over thirty years, he calls his multifaceted style, fatback blues for it’s a rich mix of Delta, Chicago, and Texas blues alongside a hard driving Louisiana stomp.  Fattback Blues combines “traditional” fingerpicking and slide guitar playing with the contemporary feel of urban blues, rock, and funk.  He uses his right hand thumb to beat out a percussive bass-line and shuffle, while the index finger plays rhythm and lead lines, creating a full band sound with a solo guitar.
