Eric Bibb’s new CD for Stony Plain may well be one of the most important roots music albums of recent years. Not only does it cross genres — folk, gospel-infused acoustic blues, and down-home country — but it offers a sound steeped in the rural Louisiana where it was recorded.
It also offers the spirit of hope and optimism in difficult times, in a friendly, warm-hearted and generous manner. To find your way though these darker days, he seems to say, you have to dig — as the album title says — “Deeper in the Well.”
"Music is more than a style or a fashion
It’s bout the swing, the soul an; the passion
If I feel it — that’s good enough for me"
— Eric Bibb.
And it’s more than excellent enough for the rest of us.
