It’s fair to say Keb Mo is simply one of the most popular choices to play on anyone’s show. An easy pull.
He delivers thoughtfulness, groove, and joy every time.
So imagine my delight in having him Zoom guest from his home in Nashville.
Keb’s new album is Good to be. It reflects the loss of his mother, returning home to Compton to remodel and freshen up the home he was brought up in and to reconnect with “the community”. Now that’s one thing we talk about - I never thought of Compton as a community because everything I read and heard only referenced the toughness of the streets and what could be a hard life. (NWA!!)
Keb references and hangs with The Compton Cowboys.. real-life people. Legends in The Compton history.
Keb also talks strongly about his thoughts on Black History Month, working with Vince Gill, Old Crow Medicine Show, covering his friend Bill Withers, etc.
He answers the last question straight up – Did you find the blues or did the blues find you?
The complete audio and zoom interview drops right after The Stew. Details at www.mulliganstew.ca
