Rick Holmstrom (born May 30, 1965) is an American electric blues and rhythm and blues guitarist, singer and songwriter. Holmstrom has previously worked with William Clarke, Johnny Dyer, and Rod Piazza. He is currently the bandleader for Mavis Staples. In addition, Holmstrom has played and recorded with Jimmy Rogers, Billy Boy Arnold, Booker T. Jones, Jody Williams, and R. L. Burnside.
While employing loops and samples may scare away his core audience, Holmstrom and producer Genome (who also contributes keyboards) utilize them to make the music even grittier, raunchier, and more swampy than you'd expect. While the blips, bloops, and brittle percussion that provide the landscape over which Holmstrom lays his fluid guitar lines are a far cry from the straight-ahead blues and boogie he's accustomed to in his full-time job, it shows he's willing to expand boundaries in creative ways

Rick Holmstrom – Hydraulic Groove. I really like it when artists take left turns. You know, shake things up a little bit. Well, Rick Holmstrom takes a sharp left here. You might know him as a groove-oriented, traditional blues player. Well, his playing doesn’t change here, but the background does. Like much of the album, everything is just a little off-kilter, in a wonderful way. Like I said, Rick’s playing is always bluesy and soulful. And if you just can’t get by without straight-ahead stuff, there’s a couple of hidden tracks that would fit that bill for you.

Rod Piazza & the Mighty Flyers' guitarist, Rick Holmstrom, takes a sharp left turn on his third solo disc. Instead of churning out the traditional West Coast blues he's schooled in, he dives headfirst into the acid jazz/funk pool. While employing loops and samples may scare away his core audience, Holmstrom and producer Genome (who also contributes keyboards) utilize them to make the music even grittier, raunchier, and more swampy than you'd expect. Clearly indebted to the Meters on the bulk of this album's funky groove, Holmstrom samples Rufus Thomas' spoken word to punctuate the percussive and keyboard whirlpool of "Shake It, Pt. There's even more processing on the DJ Logic remix of the cut, one of four bonus tracks tacked onto the disc's final 20 minutes. John Medeski makes an appearance on the closing eight-minute jam, "Hamp's Hump," which further solidifies the acid funk sound.

If you think the blues should remain for ever a museum piece, then perhaps this is just not your thing. This CD is full of the most funky, amazing and innovative music you are ever likely to listen to but it definately STILL IS THE BLUES.
