Great new review of Kelly Joe Phelps' new album "Brother Sinner & The Whale" by Alexander Varty of The Georgia Straight magazine in Vancouver.
"The story it tells is as powerful as the great gospel songs of Blind Willie Johnson or the Staple Singers—songs that transcend their religious content to speak directly to the human soul."

The Vancouver Province said~ "This is a work of true beauty produced by Vancouver's Steve Dawson with lots of love."
The Vancouver Sun features Jim Byrnes' "I Hear The Wind In The Wires" in this complimentary review!
"Acclaimed musician Kelly Joe Phelps has long been known for his amazing lap steel recordings. But, as he confessed to us recently during a recent video shoot, over the last few years, the singer-songwriter has basically stopped playing that instrument altogether. Instead, he has focused on standard guitar playing, writing and collaborating with music cohort Corinne West.
On Phelps’ forthcoming solo release, Brother Sinner & The Whale (out August 21, 2012 on Black Hen Music), the musician takes yet another turn. Brother Sinner & The Whale is a simple, powerful solo album of spirituals, with lyrics inspired by the poetry in the Book of Jonah. And, while the lap steel is gone, Phelps is now playing bottleneck guitar with half of the album featuring a National guitar, while the other half features a Martin D-35.
Whether or not you consider yourself religious, this gorgeous album is well-worth checking out. It was produced by Vancouver’s Steve Dawson (himself the subject a Fretboard Journal video here) and it’s available for pre-release streaming on fretboardjournal.com for just a couple of short weeks."
Brand New deal of the week for summer! Joey Wright's "Jalopy" for a discounted price this week only!!
"Journeyman guitarist/mandolin player, Sarah Harmer sidekick and master, it seems, of just about any instrument that requires plucking, strumming, sliding or picking, Joey Wright is in his element with his second CD, the acoustically loaded and eclectically instrumental Jalopy." (Toronto Star)
