Jontavious Willis got his start singing gospel in his hometown of Greenville, Georgia, but something clicked inside him when he heard the blues.
His second album, Spectacular Class, came out earlier this year. Critics and blues artists hailed it and declared him a wunderkind and genius who proves the blues is very much alive.
Before he went on tour, Willis added two songs to our Georgia Playlist.
The first song he picked is Tight Like That by Tampa Red and Georgia Tom.
The second song Willis added to the playlist is Time Ain't Gonna Make Me Stay by Ed Andrews.
