KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD – Dirt On My Diamonds, Volume 1 (2023)
Hot on the heels of his critically acclaimed 2022 re-issue, ‘Trouble Is…25’, KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD returns with a brand new studio album entitled ”Dirt On My Diamonds Volume 1‘. Three decades since the release of his debut album, 1995’s Ledbetter Heights, this Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum bandleader still sounds like the future of the blues – this new material builds upon his already legendary repertoire.
If you approach ”Dirt On My Diamonds Volume 1” expecting autopilot twelve bars then you’ll be thrown a volley of curveballs in the best way possible. With songwriting this strong, no polish was needed.
As on any KWS album, songs are the currency, and the seven originals plus a cover on ‘Dirt On My Diamonds Volume 1’ demand to be heard, lifting listeners above their circumstances at a time when life often feels bleak and bone-raw.
