Keb’ Mo’ Launches 2015 Summer Tour



Keb' Mo' Summer Tour 2015

It’s been a diverse and award-winning year for singer, songwriter, guitarist and modern day Blues and Americana artist Keb’ Mo’. Though he is a multiple GRAMMY award-winning artist, his latest acclaimed album, BLUESAmericana, on Kind of Blue Music, accomplished a career first; three GRAMMY nominations and the honor of being awarded the Blues Music Association’s Best Contemporary Blues Album of 2015. The honor marked his 11th Blues Music Award, however, it was his first in 13 years.

On the heels of his success, Keb’ and his three-piece band will take their routinely sold out show to fans across North America for a 2015 Summer Tour, which will launch on June 18 and continue well into the fall.

When asked, Keb’ said, “I’m having more fun on the road maybe more than ever before. The talent of my team and band and the gratitude I have for people that continue to come out to see me, sometimes for the 10th or 15th time . . . it’s overwhelming.”

Hey Toby, Have You Heard “The Old Me Better” ?



Nashville-based music journalist and Country music historian, Robert K. Oermann, recently reviewed Keb’ Mo’s “The Old Me Better.” “The Old Me Better” is on BLUESAmericana, which is available on iTunes and Amazon as well as vinyl.

Have a read of his review below!  Thank you Robert K. Oermann.

Keb’ Mo’/The Old Me Better

Writers: Kevin Moore/John Lewis Parker; Producer: Keb’ Mo’; Publishers: Kebnote/Wixen/Parker’s Pen, BMI, Kind of Blue Music (track)

“Operator, get me Toby Keith on the line….Hello, Toby? Oermann here. Listen, bro, I have found your next smash hit. It’s on the current Keb’ Mo’ LP called Bluesamericana…..You’re welcome.” The Nashville bluesman recently regaled a Grand Ole Opry audience with this wry bopper about a rehabilitated rounder. “You made me a brand new man, but I like the old me better,” he sings with Dixieland accompaniment. This superbly humorous ditty is the calling card, but the whole album is essential listening. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it winds up with a ‪#‎Grammy‬ nomination. It’s that good.
