  • How does a kid from a sleepy Connecticut coastal town become one of the world’s finest blues singers? In Sugar Ray Norcia’s case, it’s practically destiny. Norcia’s career kicked into high gear in 1979 when he formed the original Sugar Ray & the Bluetones line-up with guitar giant Ronnie Earl, and it’s stayed there ever since. The elegant singer has appeared on nearly 50 albums including discs with the Bluetones, Earl, Otis Grand, Ann Peebles, Michelle Willson, Sax Gordon, Duke Robillard, and his 1999 “Best Traditional Blues” GRAMMY nominated collaboration with fellow harmonica virtuosos James Cotton, Charlie Musselwhite and Billy Branch called Superharps.
