Corinne West & Kelly Joe Phelps will drop by Afternoon Freeform with DJ Travis Parkin on Thursday at 2:30 pm.
The two will be performing at The Cooperage that night at 7:30 pm. For show info, visit http://www.ampconcerts.org Traveling for years the same well-worn roads of the touring musician (crossing paths constantly, missing one another by a day here or a week there), it wasn't until the end of 2009 that Corinne West and Kelly Joe Phelps found the opportunity to play music together. Performing alongside Corinne on a series of CD release shows for her most recent record "The Promise," Kelly Joe discovered that he'd met a true musical partner, and she the same. The next thought was simultaneous and obvious—forge their respective solo careers into one as a duo. The fundamental layer of Corinne and Kelly Joe's new partnership is mutual admiration and respect both for the ideal of honest, inspired, poignant art, and each other's own creativity and musical vision. They also share an undeniably ravenous passion for the acoustic guitar.
