Keb’ Mo’ will end 2010 on a high note. The guitarist will release his first indie album, Live & Mo’ on October 20. According to Mo’, “The CD is a custom blend of songs handpicked by Keb’ Mo’ for the premiere release on his own label, Yolabelle International.” The album boasts six live performances culled from his live show, as well as four new studio recordings. Tracks slated for inclusion range from the anthemic “A Brand New America” to an inspirational band version of “Victims of Comfort” to the deep funky groove of “Government Cheese” and the back-porch blues of “Hole in the Bucket.”

In addition, Keb’ Mo’ has been selected by the NAACP, LDF and creative producers Say It Visually to participate in a Census 2010 initiative and informative, explanatory video. Keb’ will provide the voiceover for the video and will also contribute his song “A Brand New America” to the cause. The explanatory video will be virally distributed this fall in an effort to bring awareness to the important upcoming census in April 2010. He will also appear on Comedy Central’s Sarah Silverman Program . Keb Mo’ will perform at Niagara Falls, NY’s Seneca Niagara Casino this evening.
