You Can’t Keep a Big Man Down reunites veteran blues singer/drummer Big Joe Maher with Severn Records, which released both his 1998 album, I’m Still Swingin’ (winning a Washington Area Music Association award for “Best Blues Recording”), and his 2000 release, All Night Long. You Can’t Keep a Big Down showcases Big Joe’s bluesy, swinging vocal style and rock-solid drumming on 12 tracks, evenly split between originals and covers. Whether it’s the rollicking Chicago blues of the title track, the New Orleans influenced “Evangeline,” the Texas blues sound of “Bad Case of Love,” or the Kansas City jump style of “Confessin’ the Blues,” Big Joe always delivers the goods on arguably his strongest album ever in a critically-acclaimed career.
Big Joe Maher is amoung the finest drummers and vocalists on the scene today. He's shared the stage with Jimmy Witherspoon, Jimmy McCracklin, Bullmoose Jackson, James "Thunderbird" Davis, Nappy Brown, Otis Rush, Earl King and many more. A master of blues, Jazz, swing and funk grooves, the multi award-winning artist has toured internationally and is in constant demand as a live performer and session player.
