Blues Matters! Magazine was founded by Editor-in-Chief Alan Pearce who has been championing the Blues since 1998 with the first edition going to press in April 1999! This British publication specialises in Blues music from all over the world and is a double inductee into the Blues Hall of Fame, has received 3 recognitions in the USA for continued dedication to the Blues, and received an award for Keeping The Blues Alive from The Blues Foundation. Impassioned writers and contributors have been sought to create a neat A5 bi-monthly publication with 132 pages of dynamic, uplifting and well-presented content for the magazine.
We aim to bring together the music, musicians, creators, industry people and most importantly the fans who support and sustain the Blues with all that they do.
