Joe ‘Balling The Jack’ Cushley
Joe first heard Robert Johnson on a scratchy LP 40 years ago and has been in love ever since. In 2002 he compiled the influential 'Nu Blues' album, Balling The Jack and in 2003 started his long-running Balling The Jack radio show on Resonance FM playing "13 Bar Blues". As well as DJ-ing at clubs and festivals – and running his BTJ night at The Blues Kitchen – he discovered and managed Seasick Steve.
He currently helps look after Grammy-winning Fantastic Negrito, alt-blues-rockers Miraculous Mule, guitarists Ramon Goose, Aidan Connell and Garry Smith, chanteuse Sarah Olivier and punk-blueser, Bone Zeno.
