about

I'm in the Business is Sam Cockrell's debut album of original blues and R&B, showcasing Cockrell's many talents--as a singer, songwriter, arranger, producer, and bass player.

With a soulful tenor voice often compared to Robert Cray, this Chicago southsider's take on the blues is decidedly upbeat with many danceable grooves. Blues radio shows from The Windy City down to Memphis have been airing tracks to enthusiastic listener response. You'll find Cockrell's tasteful blending of blues, R&B, soul, and funk to be irresistible, too.
