Kelly Joe Phelps

In-studio performance
Having earned a reputation as one of the best living slide guitarists, Kelly Joe Phelps has decided to lay aside his slide in favor of straight finger-picking guitar playing. Raised in a musical family, Phelps discovered the music of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Ornette Coleman in his teenage years later discovering American Folk and Delta Blues in the records of Robert Pete Williams, Mississippi Fred McDowell, and Skip James. The following three songs, recorded at KEXP and from his album Sky Like A Broken Clock, reflect Kelly Joe Phelps at his best. -
