Ben Powell's new CD "New World Blues" is now READY TO SHIP!! Get your copy today.
I got to work with some real amazing musicians on this one. The world renown pianist and fellow vegetarian Carl Sonny Leyland and I were able to get a couple songs cut during a brief session in April while he was in town for a gig. And the instantly recognizable sound of world famous BBQ advocate and non vegetarian James Harman's Harmonica graces the final cut "Profit At Any Cost". All this took place at my friend and fellow blues man Nathan James's studio. Nathan lent his expert ear, production skills, and world class musicianship to help me make these songs sound the way I wanted, THANKS guys! I hope you like it.
With this site I attempt to attract new fans by showing what it is exactly I do. Also giving people far away an opportunity to listen to and buy my work, and belive me, I appreciate it when you do!
