Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

SHELLEY KING

Welcome Home

2009-11-13

Shelley King was the 2008 Official State Musician of Texas; she was the first woman to hold that honor. "Welcome Home", her 5th cd shows why. This solidly Delta Blues cd started out as an informal gathering of friends to record a few demos. Her friends are the Subdudes; John Magnie, Tim Cook, & Steve Amedee and together they took this cd to a Texas style, bigger than life, recording. King has a VOICE and adding the harmonies from the Subdudes creates a WYCE perfect cd. I loved the first song “Summer Wine” best - maybe after the fall we had it just hit me right. I hope you’ll find something that is as appealing to you. Anne Lamont
