Over the course of his nearly thirty year career, the Grammy-nominated G. Love has put out close to fifteen albums both solo and with his band Special Sauce. From Coast To Coast Motel, to Yeah, It’s That Easy
to The Juice, his catalog is a consistently effortless blend of blues, hip-hop, R&B and alternative rock. Throughout the years G. Love has collaborated with Dr. John and Jack Johnson, played the HORDE tour, acted as the house band for Comedy Central’s “Turn Ben Stein On” series, and helped launch the Coca Cola advetisting campaign for Coke Zero with his own take on the track “I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing.” G Love’s new album is Philadelphia, Mississippi and it is just what its title suggests: a seamless hybrid of hip-hop and the delta blues that combines to make the quintessential album of the summer of 2022. Or any summer. This is a summer record—from the breezy bliss of Laughing In The Sunshine to Love From Philly, which features Schooly D., the Luther Dickinson-produced album also features Speech from Arrested Development, Alvin Youngblood Hart and Chuck Treece. It’s got swagger, it’s got soul and it’s got heart. It’s a perfect record.
