Blues Saraceno: Save My Soul

It’s Media Monday and today’s song is a cut that has gotten a great deal of television airplay in the last month. Blues Saraceno’s “Save My Soul” was the opening theme and the promo bed for the History Channel’s “The Men Who Built America,” which was an excellent docu-drama of the industrial giants of the late 19th and early 20th century America. The song is also being used as a commercial bed for the latest Hardees commercial.

The son of two musicians, it isn’t that unusual that Saraceno’s given name is “Blues.” Discovered at the age of 16, he has toured with Poison and former Cream members Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker. I love the tonal qualities both on his slide guitar and vocals. Saraceno is living up the name “Blues.”
