If you haven’t yet heard of Ladell McLin, you will. Born and raised on the Southside of Chicago, known as the birthplace of Chicago blues, Ladell spent his childhood immersed in music. As a child, his parents, singer Marsha McLin and jazz drummer, Lamont Braswell, inspired him to express himself as a musician, however his initiation into the blues came via his older brother, drummer Andre Cotton, who toured extensively backing Buddy Guy, Willie Dixon and Junior Wells. It was Andre who gave Ladell his first break at the age of sixteen, encouraging him to develop his prodigious talent on guitar by playing venues around Chicago; by nineteen he had already landed himself a coveted spot in the house band at Buddy Guy’s Legends -arguably one of the most renowned blues venues in the world. It was at there that Ladell honed his guitar chops, learning onstage from titans such as: Johnny “Guitar” Watson, Koko Taylor, John Primer and Buddy Guy himself. Two years later Ladell was invited to play the famous Chicago Blues Festival, where he shared the stage with blues greats, Fernando Jones, Derek Trucks, and Pine Top Perkins. Ladell eventually moved to New York City, where he is currently based, and began touring the world as James “Blood” Ulmer’s guitarist before pursuing a solo career. In 2005 Ladell released his debut album, “Stand Out” which features famed guitarist Vernon Reid (Living Color) and singer David Johansen (New York Dolls). “Stand Out” is chock full of hard-hitting, rock-tinged riffs and guitar pyrotechnics which have garnered critical acclaim from international publications such as: The Village Voice, Rolling Stone Magazine, The New York Post, Relic, High Times and Real Blues Magazine. Since the album’s release, Ladell has captivated audiences in Holland, Germany, Finland, Slovakia, Serbia, Czech Republic, Canada, Ukraine, Netherlands, Cote D’Ivoire, Guadeloupe, Morocco, and Switzerland, where he played with Carlos Santana, B.B. King, Robert Randolph, Shemekia Copeland, John McLaughlin, Susan Tedeschi and
