Release: Sid Whelan - Waitin' For Payday

NYC songwriter, singer and guitarist Sid Whelan’s newly-released third album, Waitin’ for Payday, delves into the limitless possibilities of
rock+blues+country+soul ingredients that form the base of the Americana musical stew.
Sid studied songwriting with Grammy-winning artists Steve Earle and Chely Wright and guitar with Woody Mann and Howard Morgen. In
the ’90s he was lead guitarist with various world music acts including the Lijadu Sisters and later Afroblue. On Waitin’ for Payday, Sid’s deep
appreciation of African music makes an appearance on “Legba Ain’t No Devil” and “The Promise.”

In 2013 Sid put his band together and released Flood Waters Rising, a blues-inspired collection which Blues Matters called “…a definitive return of a great musician.” In 2015 he released The Story of Ike Dupree, which features a horn section arranged and led by the great funk pioneer Fred Wesley, leading Rootstime to declare “the additional contribution of legendary bandleader and trombonist Fred Wesley and his funky horn section to these songs can be defined as a great and artful achievement.”
