You won’t find many guitarists on Chicago’s world-renowned blues scene who are as busy on a nightly basis as Breezy Rodio.
Breezy is on his way up the ladder fast as a globetrotting ambassador for Chicago blues, serving up tough, uncompromising sounds wherever he roams.
In early 2015, Breezy released his most recent CD, So Close To It, on the Windchill label. It found him in the recording studio with a host of certified Windy City legends, guitarists Lurrie Bell and Carl Weathersby, harpist Billy Branch, and organist Chris Foreman providing spirited backing. Full of well-crafted originals and spiced by three tasty B.B. King revivals, the album earned Rodio rave reviews in blues magazines worldwide and picked up plenty of concentrated radio airplay.
While in the midst of a recent 14-city tour of Brazil, Breezy produced an album by the Big Fielders. When Music Was Music stands as another triumph in Rodio’s growing discography. He plays crisp guitar throughout the Big Fielders set and sings a couple of doo-wop classics to boot.
