About.com recently declared 'Dave Keller's gonna be huge!' , and it's starting to seem that way. A first-class singer, guitarist, and songwriter, Keller has earned the respect of the torchbearers of blues and soul music. Legendary guitarist Ronnie Earl featured the singing and songwriting of Keller on his 2010 CD Living In The Light, which received a coveted BMA nomination for Contemporary Blues Album of the Year. Mighty Sam McClain, one of the deepest of the classic soul singers, has mentored Keller for years. And Mississippi soul blues master Johnny Rawls calls Keller his protégé, frequently spotlighting him as part of his touring band. The newest CD from Keller, Where I'm Coming From, is a deep soul gem. Produced by Bob Perry (Wu-Tang Clan, Brian McKnight, Foxy Brown), with backing from The Revelations, the music sounds alive and full and super funky -- like Hi Records around 1969, but with the clarity of modern recordings. It even features Keller singing a duet with acclaimed soul singer Tre Williams. With the release of Where I'm Coming From, Dave Keller reaches into the past for inspiration, while establishing himself as one of the leading voices for the future of soul music.

Review:

For those who love classic soul music, you may often wonder if another great record will be made. With so many of the legends having passed on you have to think that maybe that genre has faded away. But put your concerns aside, for with Dave Keller's latest release, Where I'm Coming From, we now know that not only is this genre alive and well, but thriving beautifully. Keller hits all the right notes on this one, from the opening few bars of More Than I can Stand, to the final notes of his tug-at-your-heart rendition of Arthur Alexander's If It Really Has to be This Way. Keller pays tribute to his musical heroes throughout this recording but without stealing from their thunder. He puts his own unique stamp on these songs, and his band is with him at every turn. For an example of that, listen to the perfect organ riffs sailing their way through a spot-on rendering of Too Weak to Fight, a song Clarence Carter cut at Muscle Shoals in the late 1960s. Keller also hits Memphis head on with his take on the late James Carr's Pouring Water on a Drowning Man, again remaining true to the original feeling of the song but with Keller's own twist on it, his fine voice driving the song to its conclusion. With this release, Keller takes you back to the days when soul music really had soul. His voice, his guitar work, the excellent vocal harmonies and the fine band make Where I'm Coming From one of 2011's best records. If you're needing a good dose of, to borrow from Arthur Conley, sweet soul music, look no further than this great record from Dave Keller. --Brett Fleming, Soul Stew, WEVL, Memphis

SOULDRENCHED from the first song to the last! His music deserves to be heard around the world! -- Michael Cloeren, Founder and Producer, Pocono and Pennsylvania Blues Festivals --Michael Cloeren, Founder and Producer, Pocono and Pennsylvania Blues Festivals

Stunning...impassioned vocals...smooth delivery...honesty that can't be mitigated...fueled by infectious beats...a wise choice to recover some great lost soul music. --Michael Kinsman, Blues Revue
