An ever-expanding career of ramshackle grandeur. Bill "Watermelon Slim" Homans has built
a remarkable reputation with his raw, impassioned intensity. HARP Magazine wrote
"From sizzling slide nitty-gritty harp a gruff, resonating Okie twang,
Slim delivers acutely personal workingman blues with both hands on the wheel of life,
a bottle of hooch in his pocket, and the Bible on the passenger seat."

Paste Magazine writes "He's one hell of a bottleneck guitarist, and he's got that
cry in his voice that only the greatest singers in the genre have had before him."
"The most exciting and authentic blues performer I've heard in years."

2x Winner: 2008 Blues Music Award Band of the Year and Album of the Year

2x Winner: 2006 & 2007 MOJO Magazine's #1 Blues Album of the Year

Winner: 6th Annual Independent Music Awards Blues Album of the Year

Dirty Red & The SoulShakers are a modern-day powerhouse-blues band,
built on old-school influences and a mutual love for the down'n'dirty style of blues
that define the band's sound. A dangerously tight rhythm section, backing a funky,
shake-your-money-maker groove, guarantees ladies dancing and good times!
Top that with wailing blues harp, jaw-dropping guitar licks,
and the unmistakable charm and soul of the towering blues-man they call,
"Dirty Red," and you can bet you're gonna find yourself hooked.
