Kelly Joe Phelps
(liner notes to Shine Eyed Mister Zen)


Shine Eyed Mister Zen

By Steve Earle

"Kelly Joe Phelps plays, sings, and writes the blues.  HOLD UP, before you lock that in, forget about songs in a 'twelve bar three chord' progression with a two line repeat-and-answer rhyme structure, (although he can certainly do that when he wants to); I'm talking about a feeling, a smoky, painful, yet somehow comforting groove that lets you know that you are not alone, even when you're blue.  Play on, brother."
