Little Victor has been called the King of Grit and the antithesis of meaningless virtuosity. His rich, quirky and inspired downhome blues became well-known to blues audiences through his work with the legendary Louisiana Red on the highly celebrated Back To The Black Bayou. This album introduced the world to the powerful musical chemistry between Louisiana Red and Little Victor as his producer/protégé/bandleader. The record featured guests including Kim Wilson, Bob Corritoreand David Maxwell and won prestigious prizes like the Grand Prix Du Disque (the French equivalent of the Grammy Award), the renowned Record Critics’ Award of Germany (the German equivalent of the Grand Prix Du Disque), numerous Best Album nods in different Countries and a pair of nominations at the 31st Blues Music Awards (the Grammy of the blues) in the USA. The album earned glowing reviews on 3 continents in important mainstream music magazines such as Rolling Stone and Down Beat. Little Victor has also produced and played on records by David Evans, Sophie Kay, Hubert Sumlin, RL Burnside, Robert Belfour and Tav Falco’s Panther Burns –his work on Tav’s long-awaited comeback album Conjurations was even noticed by MOJO Magazine.
