Eric Dahl at Fox 17’s Rock & Review Interviews Markey Blue

What a day for Markey Blue!

It was a great day for Markey Blue as Eric Dahl of Fox 17 interviewed the blues duo promoting their new album, The Blues are Knockin. 

The last few months have been incredible for the band with their new release climbing to #6 on the Roots Music Report Contemporary Blues Album Chart, having one track from the album played on Season 2 of Fox Network’s Wayward Pines, and getting their own Pandora Radio channel.

Check out the band’s website for the latest up to date info, news, and calendar.
