Ori Naftaly Came to U.S. To Pursue Blues Dream

(The Blues) I had to leave home to play the blues… Perhaps the story of a young musician packing up his belongings and leaving home to pursue the blues is an old one – but 25-year-old Ori Naftaly's version presents a new global twist.

He's an Israeli who, on discovering the work of Muddy Waters and Buddy Guy, decided to dedicate his future to the genre, even though there's no scene to speak of in his home country.

Instead he's decanted to the US, where he'll struggle through his homesickness in an attempt to cut out a career for his Ori Naftaly Band. He tells the Greeley Tribune: "We've had to sacrifice a lot to leave everything, but I don't see any other way to do it." more on this story
