Dubbed "the King of Estonian Blues" by the press, the former Bullfrog Brown guitarist topped the Estonian album chart with his 2016 LP "Roots Music", earning him a Golden Disc award. His next studio effort "Winter" reached #6 in the French and #9 in the British blues airplay charts for December 2016 and stayed in the charts for two months; a "Bluesman of the Year" award from the UK-based Severn FM's The Blues Hour followed in January 2018.
