Reorganization and rebranding emphasizes the heartfelt connections at the core of Nola Blue, Inc.

LANCASTER, Pa. - EntSun -- MoMojo Records proudly announces the signing of five-time Blues Music Award nominee Mitch Woods.  Mitch Woods and His Rocket 88s have been the torchbearers of a great American blues musical heritage for four decades. Taking their inspiration from the great jump n' boogie outfits of the late 40s and early 50s, they breathe fresh life into the music that gave birth to rock n' roll. Adding a healthy dose of New Orleans rhythm and blues, pile drivin' piano, and some of his own playful lyrics, Woods and His Rocket 88s forge their own brand of music they call "rock-a-boogie."  Happy Hour, Woods' fourteenth album, is a collection of his most popular original tunes, recorded at the legendary Greaseland Studios in San Jose, CA. At the helm was musical genius Christoffer "Kid" Andersen, who also joined on guitar, as the music emerged in a new light with fresh arrangements, capturing the joy that live music brings.  The album is slated for September 6, 2024 release.

Since its inception in October 2022, MoMojo Records (a division of Nola Blue, Inc.) has been serving a diverse segment of independent roots artists connected by the quality of artistry rather than confined by genre boundaries. The guiding label credo, "distribution is more than delivery" has proven both valuable and worthy of expanded focus. MoMojo artists are provided the flexibility of DIY distribution, combined with thoughtful, personalized attention, all with careful consideration for each project's unique needs and budget. Debra Clark, a key team member of Nola Blue, Inc. since its inception, has been providing graphic and website design services.  Clark will now assume the role of Label Services Manager, extending her responsibilities to ensure consistency of operations and branding across all efforts. Her logo redesign reflects not only the heartfelt philosophy of the label, but also the mojo it creates.

"Mitch Woods has been a well-respected member of the blues community for decades, working with some of the finest on the scene," says Sallie Bengtson, MoMojo Records president. "We're certain that the 'rock-a-boogie' sounds of his latest project will be a welcome addition to many happy hours!"

"While designing our new MoMojo logo, I wanted it to really signify our love of music and the joy and healing that it brings. Incorporating a modified version of the 'Anahata' - the symbol for the heart chakra - represents love and the 'building of meaningful trusting relationships with others,'" says Clark.  "Sallie and I truly look forward to strengthening our current relationships and supporting future additions to the label."

"I am excited to be part of MoMojo and working with a great team," says Woods. "I know Sallie and Debra will give my latest release careful attention and help get it into blues and boogie lovers hands!"
