Sinful singer

The phantom monk of folk-blues, Kelly Joe Phelps‚ plays Hermann’s Jazz Club‚753 View St., Sunday, Nov. 25 at 8 p.m.

It’s a lonely road to go down and like the old gospel says, you’ve got to walk it for yourself.

Phelps has been doing lot of soul searching since his last record, Western Bell, came out in 2009. Three years later, his journey wound its way to a recording studio in Vancouver, where Phelps beat a path to veteran producer Steve Dawson’s door with a new batch of songs that reflect both new insights gained along his journey, as well as things that dropped by the wayside. Together Phelps and Dawson embarked on a recording odyssey that marked their fourth collaboration, the result is Phelps’ latest release, Brother Sinner and the Whale.

Hear tracks from Brother Sinner and the Whale at Phelps’ show. Tickets at hightideconcerts.net.
