Kevin Welch is a fine singer, storyteller and a man of high principles.  His music has never wavered from top-shelf quality, it contains a stream of acclaimed releases and continues a seasoned pattern of striving for a rich diversity that only the best are able to manage.

A surprising eight years have passed since the release of his last album Patch of Blue Sky.  Welch assembled some of the world’s finest musicians and returned to the studio in Nashville to make his new record Dust Devil.  Featuring ten original songs, Welch’s new words will be eagerly awaited.  Listening Through The Lens reported on a Welch live show this year (READ ABOUT IT HERE) and we were treated to two of the new songs – “Dust Devil” and “A Flower”.

With Dust Devil (out October 15), Welch continues a successful career spanning over four decades as a recording artist and producer.  As a masterful writer he has written songs for such iconic artists as Roger Miller, Waylon Jennings, The Highwaymen, Solomon Burke, Linda Ronstadt, Patty Loveless and many others.  Most recently Grammy-Award winner, Chris Stapleton, released a highly-successful version of Welch’s “Millionaire”.

Releasing a dozen records over the years – most for Dead Reckoning Records the label he co-founded in Nashville in the mid 90s – Welch’s music has carried him around the planet, earning him deep respect in the musical community and fans from every walk of life, including the former President of the United States, Barack Obama.
