Gospel-infused soul-folk-bluesman Eric Bibb will release his brand new album Jericho Road on October 14, through Dixiefrog Records. He’ll back it up with an extensive tour too.
Many years in the making, Jericho Road is probably Bibb’s most innovative recording to date. Producer is Glen Scott, who comes from a tradition of gospel and black heritage music.
