Six String Electric Soul
Thanks for stopping by...here's the current skinny in kp land:
Just released Dream Catcher an advance track from the next EP. Video will follow soon. Thanks for listening!
Merry Christmas! I hope everyone had a safe and special time with family and friends. I have no siblings or children so it's different for me but I enjoy the Holidays a great deal. Now that 24 is right around the corner we'll be working on finishing my next EP entitled “Well All Right” which should be released in Q1.
I want to pass along a webpage I think a number of you will enjoy…especially if you love the blues like I do. Terry Abrahamson is a Grammy Winning Song Writer and author and I highly recommend his book “In The Belly Of The Blues” This link will take you to “Witness To History”, an interview where you will learn more about it. I recently met Terry and collaborated with him and Derrick procell to write “Love to spare” Check out the interview…it's fascinating and the book is as well!
I hope you all have a great New Year…see ya on the flip side.
Tonight I'll be with The Phil Gatto Band at Danny's in Naperville, show time 8:00 pm
On 11/19 I'll be performing at the Tribute to Fred Glickstein at Hey Nonny in Arlington Heights playing songs that were written by Fred and Bruce Gordon in the 60's! It's an early show, featuring many Chicago music notables including Dinosaur Exhibit, Scott May, The Cave Dwellers and more. Doors open at 2.
On 11/2 we are debuting the All Star Blues Band backing up Jake & Elwood at the 7 Bridges Ice Arena in Lisle. Going to be an incredible event, a fundraiser for the rink itself and The Hanson Brothers will be there too…yeah them
Well it's here...some of us in the Midwest love the coming of fall. Where are you on that? I have a few shows left and I'm looking forward to working on the next two releases, continuing the 6 song song EP thread. Generation shows remaining include Des Plaines Fall Fest 9/15 and Houby Fest on 10/7.
It's been a busy summer and with a lot of gigs under my belt and a lot more to go I find myself behind schedule on my pending EP "Well All Right" So with a renewed sense of purpose I'm back the Groove Grove laying tracks between shows. It's good to be alive!
The Love To Spare video premiers Saturday 3/25 at noon on Youtube, it features Derrick Procell on keys and vocals, we co-wrote the tune and plan on doing more soon! Check it out and let us know what you thought…
We had a great response to the new EP, B,B&B just released on 2/25, it's now the 27th and the last thing I wanted to do was rest on my laurels...or my hardy's so let me present a fresh track called Love To Spare A new era in kp land this is a collaboration between Derrick Procell and me. More to come, stay tuned!
2/10/23 The next release in the 6 song EP series is Blues, Ballads & Burners which will be released worldwide on all digital platforms on February 25th. It includes a remix of Warrior by Legendary Producer Stu Epps. The EP also features the sultry vocals Dalis Santiago and more guitar wanking from you know who. The next in the 6 song series is not far behind in production and should be released late spring / early summer.
