Danielle Corona - "Windy City Blues"
In 2016, I visited Chicago for a Theatre conference. A day before leaving, my grandfather passed away and I almost didn't go to Chicago. My grandmother encouraged me to go because my grandfather wouldn't have wanted me to miss the opportunity. I wrote this song in Chicago on the metro after randomly hanging out with Guitar Shorty's band (Jimi Hendrix's brother-in-law) on my birthday at Buddy Guy's blues bar. I recorded the audio inside of my totaled car, Princess Leia, whom we used as a sound booth. Audio is still in first draft, but we wanted to complete a video before I was to move to Northern California.
