Bert Deivert & Copperhead Run - Blood in My Eyes for You

Stockholm, Sweden — Warner Music Sweden has announced the release of Bert Deivert & Copperhead Run's Blood in My Eyes for You.

On Blood In My Eyes For You, Deivert & Copperhead Run play mandolin blues by combining the sound of postwar electric guitars, bass, and drums with old time acoustic blues.

Ten of the twelve songs on Blood In My Eyes For You are blues classics written by legends like Sleepy John Estes, Big Joe Williams, RL Burnside and Son House. Bert Deivert has penned the other two songs. The album is Bert Deivertís 12th album and the fourth featuring blues mandolin.

The band is composed of Bert Deivert on vocals, resonator mandolin, guitar; Janne Zander on resonator guitar, acoustic & electric guitar, slide; Per-Arne Pettersson on bass; and Fredrik Lindholm on drums.

About Bert Deivert

Bert Deivert was born in 1950 in Boston. In 1966 he saw Son House on TV and was so amazed that he broke a wine bottle and made his own bottleneck for playing slide guitar. He has been hooked on the blues ever since and has never looked back. Deivert moved to Sweden in 1974 and has been playing professionally since then. He has played with musicians such as Peter Case, Eric Bibb, New York bluesman Michael Powers, rockabilly queen Wanda Jackson, old-timey legend Tom Paley and Irish Singer Christy O'Leary. Bert has gone to Mississippi in recent years and played and jammed with great blues musicians there, like Bill Abel, Sam Carr, Cadillac John Nolden, Terry "Harmonica" Bean, Jimmy "Duck" Holmes and T-Model Ford.
