Hercules is the chosen middle name (stage name) of today’s original artist. One of his earliest bands was “Bluesology”. It was through answering the same newspaper ad that he came to work with his longtime collaborator and co-writer of today’s song.

Today’s song fared better when released by the Shadow artist who was much more well known at the time. The original artist and his co-songwriter were thrilled to have their song covered by today’s Shadow artist.

Our Shadow artist began singing at a young age with her father. She was, and is, music royalty.

March 25th is a special day for both the original and Shadow artist!
