Bigg John Akapo just released his debut album on October 19th and already it has climbed to #8 on the iTunes Blues Charts.
We asked John was it was like to release his first album and what inspired him.
“Its nerve racking! I feel like I’m really putting myself out there for the first time. People know me locally for playing cover songs, so this is a completely different look. It’s my original music now, so it’s a little scary but I feel like time. It was inspired by 13 year old me. I’ve always wanted to record a blues album because the blues was my first love. I started playing guitar because I wanted to play the blues. It’s only fitting that my debut album be a blues album.”
The album can be purchased or streamed on all digital platforms.
