    Laith Al-Saadi

    Blues Revival

    In 2016, Laith Al-Saadi won America’s hearts and a spot in the finale of NBC’s “The Voice.” Now he’s poised to bring his authentic blend of blues, soul and classic rock to audiences around the nation and the world.

    Laith Al-Saadi has always had the perfect combination of Midwestern hustle and incredible musical chops – honed at the University of Michigan school of music in his hometown of Ann Arbor, and on stages across the country working with legends like Taj Mahal, Luther Allison, Buddy Guy, Son Seals, Gregg Allman and B.B. King.

    “Laith is one of the most diverse talents we have,” said Maroon 5 frontman and ‘The Voice’ coach Adam Levine. “Incredible guitar player, incredible singer.”

    Entertainment Weekly called Laith Al-Saadi “a power performer who is so legitimate and memorable.”

    Audiences have agreed, propelling Al-Saadi’s most recent release, “REAL” to the top of the blues chart for five weeks and the top 20 album chart for two weeks. Laith also had four singles in the top ten iTunes singles charts, and his albums “In The Round” and “Long Time Coming” spent time at the top of the rock and album charts.

    Guitar World Magazine has called Laith Al-Saadi a cross between "Danny Gatton and Buddy Guy at their best,” and Guitar Center crowned him one of the top four blues guitarists in the United States.

    Music

    The Macpodz. We like lunch, but we loves a buffet. The Macpodz have discovered that the chicken dance is actually the jig of a duck. No chicken I've ever seen shakes its ass like that. Once in Chicago the drummer was swept off the street by Scientologists and forced to take multiple choice tests to determine fitness as a candidate for conversion. Once in Colorado the trumpet player had to use an oxygen mask to maintain consciousness. Once in Florida the bassist shucked hundreds of oysters and discovered which famous rock n roll bands were afraid to eat them raw. The Macpodz spell their name with a Z, and no capital P. The Macpodz quote Lou Reed, "She started dancin' to that fine fine music, you know her life was saved by rock n roll."
