KEB’ MO’ ‘Good to Be’


Available on backorder


Keb’ Mo’ shines across the styles on Good To Be…a carefully blended brew, a feelgood fusion of blues and contemporary country. Few artists invest as much soul and passion into their art as Keb Mo. Although his basis may be the blues, his music incorporates folk, soul, country, and R&B in a way that eludes easy categorization, but still comes across as effortlessly engaging while imbuing consistent good vibes and an ease brought about through infectious enthusiasm.

That’s never been more evident than on the aptly dubbed Good To Be, an album that consistently exudes optimism even in the face of the overwhelming odds everyone’s been forced to contend with during an era of a problematic pandemic, debilitating disasters, and polarizing politics. “The Medicine Man,” a song that features an assist from Old Crow Medicine Show shares the scenario succinctly.

This soothing, peaceful album reminds us to take stock of who we are, where we’ve been, but mostly to just appreciate the moments at hand. It’s the kind of album that only a superior artist could pull off without sounding cheesy or pat.
