Release: Lew Jetton & 61 South "Palestine Blues" available August 7th

Palestine Blues, the new album from Lew Jetton & 61 South is a personally poignant and sometimes brutal memoir of a 10 year period in Jetton's life which included struggles with alcohol, drugs, depression, joblessness, frustration and a spiritual tug of war.
Lew Jetton says, “Palestine is the community in which I live but it's also a place of historic significance for being sacred, while at the same time, a place of conflict. That's kind of where I have been for years. I know a lot of blues is happy and uplifting. This is not. I'm OK with that. I wanted it to be real blues, in the emotional sense, and that's what 'Palestine Blues' is.”

"Palestine Blues" is pure emotion. Recorded 3 piece, for the most part, with just Lew on guitar, with bass and drums, so the essence of the songs could show through. No posing. Just the raw feeling, so you really can feel the frustration, the helplessness, the anger, the sadness, that are a way of life for so many today.
