Lew Jetton

Lew Jetton learned The Blues the old fashioned way, in the cotton fields of his native West Tennessee in the 60s and 70s. Along the way, he had two of the best mentors one could have: In the 80s, the legendary Carl Perkins, and in the 90s, the one and only Chicago Blues Legend, Snooky Pryor. Lew Jetton is indeed, the real deal.

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. 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.

Palestine Blues is the 4th CD from Lew Jetton & 61 South to garner rave reviews as well as worldwide radio airplay, including on BB King's Bluesville on Sirius/XM Radio. Palestine Blues follows on the heels of Lew Jetton & 61 South's 2016 release Rain, which spent more than 6 months of the Roots Music Report's Contemporary Blues Chart, finishing #36 in their year end list of all the Top 200 releases. Over the years, Lew Jetton & 61 South have cemented their reputation on the club and festival circuit with their signature, critically acclaimed, Mississippi River Electric Blues sound.
