Keb’ Mo’ Releases New Album, Oklahoma


Today, Keb’ Mo’ releases Oklahoma, his first solo studio album since BLUESAmericana (2014). Building on the backbone of the Blues with subjects like depression and love, Mo’ also addresses current worldly issues like immigration and environmental degradation. Oklahoma is now available through all digital retailers and can be purchased here:

Following his 2018 Grammy Award-winning collaboration with Taj Mahal, TajMo (2017), Glide Magazine predicts, “another Grammy awaits,” calling Oklahoma “the most personal and adventurous album he’s made.”

Other highlights from critics include:
“Keb’ Mo’ is truly unlike any other artist on today’s contemporary blues scene. He has an uncanny ability to paint a musical kaleidoscope and offer a range of styles and sounds that appeal to a wide audience, all the while remaining true to himself as an artist.” – Ink 19
“Mo’s career path is littered with Grammys… this outing may well put him on track for more statuettes for his mantel.” – No Depression
“There’s nothing better to heal your soul than a Keb’ Mo’ concert… With storytelling at the heart of his songs, Keb’ is not just an outstanding guitar player, singer-songwriter, but a great entertainer.” – Rock and Blues Muse
“All in, it’s the most personal and adventurous album he’s made in his decorated career…” – Glide Magazine

Overall, Oklahoma—which Keb’ has dedicated to his late mother, Lauvella Cole, who passed away in September 2018 at the age of 91—maintains an impressive level of emotional engagement throughout, making it one of his most compelling collections. With noted musical veteran Colin Linden (The Band, Bruce Cockburn) heading up production duties, the album’s 10 tracks encompass Keb’ Mo’s diverse talents, with the artist delivering some of the most adventurous and personal work of his career. Oklahoma (Concord Records) features cameos from Taj Mahal, Rosanne Cash, Robert Randolph, Jaci Velasquez and Keb’ Mo’s wife, Robbie Brooks Moore.
