A musician I just discovered a couple of months ago, Kelly Joe Phelps, is releasing a new album in a couple of weeks. I'm pretty happy about this because his music rocks.
If you happen to like bluesy acoustic slide guitar with some soulful singing- check out this mp3 here- Motherless Children off his "Lead Me On" album.
I wonder if he ever goes on tour...... wait a minute! Looks like he does..
Check out his website .. but doesn't look like he'll be around the big MO anytime soon.
