A quality of soul

"It's a little daunting to try to describe Kevin Welch's music, but anything I can say that will lead you to go try him out is worth a shot. At the simplest, more direct level, he touches the soul. The songs are deep, wise, straightforward, and melodic in a strong country-blues-folk vein, but Kevin really is one of those rare artists who transcends his genre. I don't mean crossover pop, I mean real transcendence. You listen and ache and rejoice and wonder how this soul got so simple and true, so humble and so wise, and how he makes such beautiful music. Just give him a try--listen to a music sample online, do anything you can. If he touches your soul, buy everything you can find of his, because this guy is the real thing."
Bob Dylan ,Van Morrsion and Dwight Yoakam rolled into one!

"I recently discovered Kevin Welch and Dead Reckoning CD's because I often shop at dollar stores. Apparently, much of the older DR catalog has been sold off to these mom and pop stores that put out a CD spinner display, largely of unknown music. KW's album cover caught my attention-he looked honest, organic and Americana. I snatched it off the rack, along with lable mates
Mike Henderson and the Bluebloods, Kieran Kane and Big House. This was the musical find of my lifetime!

Kevin Welch is a poor man's Bob Dylan. But unlike Dylan, Kevin Welch can sing, and can create word pictures with his unique phrasing. The songs can really catch you off guard. The combination of super skilled Dead Reckoner musicians, and captivating stories will make you wonder why this stuff didn't catch fire.

The reason of course is this is not mainstream pop. Country can't use it, it's not commercial enough. Folk is pretty much dead. This record label should do more to bring this to folks attention. Kevin Welch is a great American songwriter and musician and his cast of Dead Reckoners are equally talented. If you find this in a dollar store buy atleast 2-one for you and one for a music loving friend."
Wishing for more Kevin

""Life Down Here on Earth" is awesome. Kevin Welch knows how to reach inside your soul and pull out all the stops! Terrific CD. My song favorites from this CD: Pushing up Daisies, Troublesome Times, Wishing for You, and The Love I Have for You. His songs come deep from the heart. See him live with his band if you get the chance. I have seen him perform in Austin many times and hope to many more."
