Kelly Joe Phelps'
new album titled Sky Like A Broken Clock
(Rykodisc) is due to hit the streets on July 10. Please take a moment to read some of the kudos Kelly has won in the past alongside a pre-release review of the new album from the U.K. The new album is Kelly's first to enlist accompanying musicians, and he's chosen Larry Taylor (Tom Waits' band) on string bass and Billy Conway (Morphine) on drums.
