A cross-reference to the first overnight radio show (CKCU 93.1 FM) placing a heavy emphasis on Canadian blues and fusions of same (2007-2012). From 2012-2014, "Rockin' the Blues from Canada" was broadcast on CHMR 93.5 FM (where it originated in 2005 as "Patchwork Blues"). This 'blog' was born in 2004 as a promotional tool for arts-related news when Geocites reclaimed its free websites.

AUSTRALIAN MIKE DE VELTA RELEASES PRESS ON! CD
It is with great pleasure that I introduce my latest release, "Press On!" (2015)
Over 3 years in the making, my best foot forward, a synthesis of over 25 years of creating, performing and producing Blues music.
Many tracks didn’t make it, no fillers. I wanted something I could be proud of, that would truly move people and stand the test of time.
With guest artists like Paul Walter Daly playing harmonica on “Press On!,” and John Wilson on upright bass known for his work with Dave Hole’s release of Short Fuse Blues in 1990, there is a vibe here that I am very pleased to present to you.
The album's theme is all about being positive in a world that at times seems oppressive. Seizing the moment, taking responsibility for your actions and using the power of affirmation and belief in oneself to attain that higher ground.
Thanks again for all your support, and remember you can always like and head to:
