"The feelings I felt that first time I heard the blues, will never leave me. A young man, just come from England to a strange and different land where the only new friends were black people and their children, built a bridge in my heart. The loneliness disappeared and was replaced by a never ending love of all that is The Blues. The players, the history and the music have been an integral part of my life ever since and I'm sure will be until I die."
~John Rhys


The Cherry Bluestorms (Deborah Gee & Glen Laughlin)
Deborah Gee was having success placing songs from Portal, her A&M-funded solo album, in TV shows and films. She was looking for a guitarist to collaborate with, when she met Glen Laughlin at a coffeehouse.

Glen had been developing the non-standard tunings that are the signature of his style while playing and singing with punk pop legends The Dickies (A&M) and former The Pop frontman David Swanson (RCA).
