Jimmy 'Duck' Holmes Announces New Album 'It Is What It Is'

(The Blues) Jimmy 'Duck' Holmes has announced he'll release his new album It Is What It Is on June 17. The follow-up to 2013's All Night Long will be released through Holmes' own label, Blue Front Records. He also made track Buddy Brown available to stream.

The singer is described as, "The embodiment of raw country blues and is regarded as the last of the Bentonia, Mississippi bluesmen. Jimmy is the last person taught the blues by Henry Stuckey, the man who taught Skip James and Jack Owens. His music evokes the dry, ghostly sounds of his mentors."

Holmes has scheduled a string of dates in support of the album this year, including an appearance at New Orleans Jazz Festival in April and a mini-tour in Bolivia in South America later this summer. Stream the song and see the dates here.
