This week’s shift inside the workshop features the new album by The Soul of John Black, as well as a cool Diddley meets Hendrix interpretation of “Who Do You Love?” and a pair of teenage brothers who have already been playing music for newarly ten years!

One of my favorite forms of the Blues is the North Mississippi Hill Country style, and that style is being kept alive by some sincredibly talented folks. One of those men is Lightnin’ Malcolm, and he’s released a brand new album. The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “Gettin’ Dark” by Lightnin’ Malcolm. It comes off his highly anticipated new release Foot Soldier. Malcolm went back to his beginnings on this disc, opting to perform as a one man band for all but two of these tracks. He wrote all of the songs on the disc, and produced the record, as well!

You can find out more about this CD, get Malcolm’s tour schedule, and much more on his official website, LightninMalcolm.com

The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is a cover of Jimi Hendrix’s “Freedom.” The song is performed by Italian guitarist and singer Davide Pannozzo, and it appears on his EP 2015. The six-song set features a few songs off Davide’s previous full-length CD, A Portrait Of Jimi Hendrix. The EP also includes versions of “Feels Like Rain” (famously recorded by Buddy Guy) and Elmore James’ “It Hurts Me Too.”

Davide Pannozzo started playing classical guitar at the age of six, and he has incorporated that immense skill into his rock influenced Blues music, along with his love for guitarists like Hendrix, Eric Clapton, David Gilmour and others.

Someone once commented that Kelly Richey sounds like “Stevie Ray Vaughan trapped in a woman’s body with Janis Joplin screaming to get out.” Over the course of 14 albums, decades of touring, and amazing live shows, that description has gone from a compliment to almost a calling card. Kelly Richey possesses the same skill, charisma, and determination those two legendary artists once held.

Kelly sat down with Johnny Full-Time for conversation and music from several of her albums. The pair discussed Kelly’s brand new CD, Sweet Spirit, new band members Freekbass and Jyn Yates, Richey’s brief hiatus from music in 2010, and much, much more! Listen to the show at the link above.
