Dear America 5/8/21


Blues veteran Eric Bibb has never addressed the United States - or shone a light on himself - with such focused eloquence as he does on 'Dear America’, his powerful new album out on Friday 10th September, that includes many guest appearances, such as legendary bassist Ron Carter, drummer Steve Jordan, singer Shaneeka Simon and fellow Provogue artist Eric Gales, who features on today's Video Of The Day, 'Whole World's Got The Blues'. Born in New York City in 1951, Bibb has known many different Americas, the good, the bad and the ugly. Consequently, the fiercely literate and historically informed songwriter, embarked on a title song that would galvanise the album, and in November 2019, Eric hit Brooklyn’s Studio G to track 'Dear America' with producer/co-writer Glen Scott plus a crack studio band.
