Keb Mo & G. Love & Special Sauce

KEB’ MO’ and G.LOVE & SPECIAL SAUCE

tuesday » AUGUST 26 » 7pm

Keb’ Mo’ has been making critically acclaimed albums since 1994 when he released his self-titled debut and became a fresh face in the blues/roots genre. That record proved to be an entryway that got many to sit up and take notice. But it was his second release, Just Like You, in 1996 that won him the first of three Grammys. It dared a deeper venture into the joyful and healing aspects of the blues and a more mainstream style. » His genre-blending artfulness, intuitive lyrics, unique guitar style, distinctive voice, and magnetic charisma on stage have gained him the significant honor of being called “a musician’s musician.”

» G. Love & Special Sauce are a Philadelphia- based trio whose laid-back, sloppy blues sound is unique, as it encompasses the sound/production of classic R&B and recent rap artists. Twenty years after the release of their self-titled debut and eight years since their last live performance together, the original lineup of G. Love & Special Sauce (G. Love - born Garrett Dutton, Jeff Clemens, Jim Prescott) return with their first album in nearly a decade. Built on the trio’s signature hip-hop blues sound, they are breathing new life into their groove-heavy, Chicago-blues-infused brand of stripped-down rock-n- roll. “The goal for the album was to make it really raw and immediate, with live takes and live vocals, and everybody playing so that it all comes together in that intangible way,” says G. Love. “That’s what our music is all about.”

Robert Ellis is the kind of songwriter who only comes along once in a great while. With his first two albums, a promise was made. With his new record, The Lights from the Chemical Plant, that promise has been delivered and fully realized. The music, like the artist, refuses to accept the confines of a box, and burns white-hot from the inside out. But what seems even more striking about this record, this musician, even at a first glance, is that feeling of unyielding authenticity.
