Raised on music by the likes of Thelonius Monk, Miles Davis, Oscar Peterson, B.B. King and many others, Goren found the magic he was looking for when he discovered Bell’s Blues Workshop in South Los Angeles. There he met up with two masters of the Blues, Bluesboy Jamie Powell, and Harmonica Sam Lee.
The mystical connection between young Goren and his old-timer musical peers who have been playing the Blues for decades demonstrates the pure Power of Blues Music by defying age and time. Far from the trendy clubs and festivals where he even performed at actor Jamie Foxx’s 43rd birthday, Goren found what his soul was yearning for at Bell’s and his teaming with Powell and Lee is truly a soul stirring Blues experience.
