Steve Howell continues searching for the deep root of American blues and roots music with Gallery Of Echoes, a collection of tunes he has been playing for a long time, some for as many as fifty years. Eleven tunes from Blind Lemon Jefferson, Rev. Gary Davis, Blind Willie McTell, and other country blues stalwarts feature Howell's considerable fingerstyle guitar skills and soulful vocals. Here he reaches into his deep musical bag and comes up with fine examples of blues storytelling. His first solo record after releasing ten collaborative efforts, including those with his longstanding bandmates, The Mighty Men, this record is a tribute to the echoes of the sounds some of his heroes pioneered and the universal themes they communicated that still ring true today.
