Dan Phelps newest CD nominated for best Acoustic Album of the Year by Blues Blast Magazine 2015.

"Illinois native Dan Phelps is helping to keep the tradition of acoustic Delta blues alive with his excellent renditions and mastery of finger-picked and slide guitar. the thumping bass strings give his interpretations a unique energy. His warm, deep and rich voice is the type more commonly associated with country music...His renditions aren’t “run of the mill”, he delivers with an original spin and authority."


Blues Blast Magazine May 2015

Dan Phelps has a clear, warm voice well-suited to covering the older acoustic Blues classics with aplomb...t’s all good on this album. Song after song that is a good listen, beautifully judged, and played with respect and technique.


Blues Matters Magazine July 2015

Dan will be representing the Crossroads Blues Society of Illinois at the Memphis International Blues Challenge in Feb. 2017!
