The epitome of a sort of "dark" blues, Henry "Blind Lemon" Jefferson lived a mere 35 years, during which he time he became the quintessential bluesman, conjuring a personal mix of rural and urban blues, decrying the conditions of the sharecroppers and city slumdwellers alike.
He actually got his start playing in brothels and barber shops, where he developed his theatrical vocal lament. Unfortunately this early genius of the blues allegedly met his premature demise by freezing to death in 1929 in America's Windy City.
