Kevin Selfe has cemented his reputation as a masterful, dyed-through, true bluesman with his new release, Buy My Soul Back on the VizzTone Label.  This latest collection of songs reveals an unwavering dedication to the traditional blues school, and yields yet another deft homage to empty wallets, ne-er-do-wells, and the enduring theme of love's rapid melt. Selfe's transformation into a leading voice on the American blues scene was realized after landing on the Billboard and Living Blues Charts with his 2013 release, Long Walk Home.   

Oft lauded for a traditional melodic sensibility broadcast through razor sharp guitar, Selfe's songwriting awakens, revealing an enriched sense of story telling, autobiography, and revelation.   Audiences from Virginia to Oregon, Selfe's former and current homes, thrill at his commitment to the role of high octane blues entertainer on the live stage -- where this new companion of songs was inspired, refined, and perfected.  Selfe's shows are part blues revival, part force of nature.  

The list of blues stalwarts joining Selfe on Buy My Soul Back reads like a contemporary blues primer:  Sugaray Rayford, Jimi Bott, Mitch Kashmar, Lisa Mann, Gene Taylor, James Pace, Willie J. Campbell and host of others.  All combine to join forces with Selfe in a rich tapestry of traditional grooves seemingly forged in the speak-easies of mid-century Chicago, the Mississippi Delta, and rural Texas.  The tributes are authentic.  The energy is palpable.  The musicianship is extraordinary.  True blues fans will rejoice.


"Kevin Selfe has followed up his highly successful album Long Walk Home with a recording just as strong if not more so. He showcases his knack for writing clever and catchy songs, sensational and tasty guitar work and his strong vocals to help him deliver the best package of music possible."
