from The Black Oil Brothers


As fans of your site we wanted to send you an MP3 of the opening track off of our new album entitled Long Way From The Delta for you to enjoy, post, send to friends, etc. I'd love to send more, but I don't want to jam up your Inbox. If you would like more MP3s, please feel free to contact me and I'll send more.

If you'd like a hard copy of the entire album, possibly for a review/feature/mention on your site, I'd be happy to send that as well! We want to spread the music far and wide to those that appreciate what we're doing.

The Black Oil Brothers are a 3-piece acoustic delta country/blues/folk band out of Chicago, IL. We just returned from our first tour of the UK, and it was quite successful. So much so that we already have shows and radio interviews set up for our next tour (for twice as long) in 2010. We're regulars in Austin (during and not during SXSW), NYC, and this summer we'll also be hitting Nashville and LA in addition to regular shows in Chicago and throughout the Midwest.

Our official CD Release Show is Friday, June 26th @ Quenchers in Chicago. We'll be promoting the release in the next month with some radio spots, etc.

Thanks and enjoy.

Or upload them directly to a host like or and send me the link, and I'll post it directly. Or send the cd if you'd like to, you guys sound quite promising.
