Kelly Joe Phelps from the USA plays the blues. He writes his own stuff but its not just simple three chord, 12 bar songs though he can do that. His sentiments demand more complex arrangements. His delicately raspy voice and his articulate guitar work combine to create what Steve Earle called a smoky, lonesome, painful, yet somehow comforting groove that lets you know that you are not alone even when youre blue. Awww. Sweet.
Kelly Joe Phelps will play at the Bangalow A&I Hall on Sunday, October 8, at 8pm. This is his first full Australian tour.
Hell be supported by David Ross McDonald who is the drummer from The Waifs and also a solo singer/songwriter.
