Palestine Blues

by Lew Jetton & 61 South

Very original. Very dark. Think Gary Clark Jr meets Townes Van Zandt. This is real deal blues focusing on today's problems so many in our country face: joblessness, depression, alcoholism, opiod abuse, struggles between the holy and the profance....

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lew Jetton & 61 South are multi-time "picks to click" on XM-Sirius Bluesville for a reason. They are very original and now, with their latest release, cutting edge, too. Their last release, Rain, spent more than 6 months on the Roots Music Report's Contemporary Blues Charts with radio airplay world wide. Palestine Blues takes it to a whole new level,

Palestine Blues, the new album from Lew Jetton & 61 South is a personally poignant and sometimes brutal memoir of a 10 year period in Jetton's life which included struggles with alcohol, drugs, depression, joblessness, frustration and a spiritual tug of war.

“Palestine is the community in which I live but it's also a place of historic significance for being sacred, while at the same time, a place of conflict. That's kind of where I have been for years. I know a lot of blues which is happy and uplifting. This is not. I'm OK with that. I wanted it to be real blues, in the emotional sense and that's what Palestine Blues is. VERY real Blues” Lew Jetton

Palestine Blues is pure emotion. Recorded three piece for the most part with just Lew on guitar, with bass and drums, so the essence of the songs could show through. No posing. No image over substance. Just the raw feeling, so you really can feel the frustration, the helplessness, the anger, the sadness, that so many are dealing with these days.
