Dave Keller plays stratton village
Following Keller's 2014 Blues Music Award nominated CD, Soul Changes, his new album includes 11 new originals and one cool cover, recorded with his longtime band, augmented by a 3-sax horn section, backing vocalists, and even a string section on a few songs.
While showing the influence of his mentors (Johnny Rawls, Mighty Sam McClain, Ronnie Earl), Keller's individuality shines. Deep soul singing, fiery guitar work, meaningful songs with addictive choruses. Like a younger generation Robert Cray, Keller mixes the power of soul and blues, drawing the listener into his world, and leaving him or her richer for the experience.
