With very special guest REBECCA CORREIA !!!
Kevin So releases his first official Americana album (and his 10th full length record) COUNTRYSIDE, mixes Americana & AAA cuts throughout this new album for a great smooth-twang sound, and brings praise from the likes of Billy Bragg, Keb' Mo' & Willie Nelson.
COUNTRYSIDE follows the 2009 release "Best Foot Forward" and celebrates 20 years of making and recording music. The confirmed portion of the 2015 tour runs through the Midwest, southeast and east coast, (More dates to come) and Kevin will be joined by pedal steel great BUCK REID (Lyle Lovett, Emmylou Harris).
As well as spending the last 20 years plying his musical trade on the road, Nashville resident Kevin So is also the composer of "GREAT WALL" - semi-autobiographical award winning musical (NYC Fringe 2007) which played 5 sold out shows at New York's Pace University, home of The Actor's Studio.
Praise for COUNTRYSIDE:
“Brilliant… this Countryside album has big legs.” -KEB’ MO’
“Great words and sounds good, too.” -WILLIE NELSON (upon hearing Kevin's song "June Carter Cash")
“An original talent and tremendous performer” -BILLY BRAGG
