ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Alone With The Blues is an award-winning solo CD by independent artist Keith Dunn. It is a rare opportunity to hear the music in its most pure form as Keith performs alone; harmonica and voice, for the entire CD.

Keith has more than 30 years in music. His vast musical knowledge, gained while in the company of giants such as Muddy Waters, James Cotton, Jimmy Rogers and Big Walter Horton, can be easily heard when listening to Alone With The Blues. Keith Dunn’s writing has been compared to J.B. Lenoir. That Keith is an exceptional songwriter is made evident by his thirteen compositions on this CD.

“Need To Make A Dollar” a song about joblessness leading to crime and “Strange Things Are Happening” a chronicle of inner-city problems caused by the US government received songwriting awards from the ISC. The attention brought to Alone With The Blues by these awards caused the CD to be boycotted in some places. When asked about this Keith’s response was, “I am happy for the debate that the boycott of Alone With The Blues has caused. These are subjects that should be discussed.”

In addition to the awards, the record has received favorable reviews from Living Blues in the USA, Blues and Rhythm in England, Soul Bag in France and Concerto in Austria, Alone With The Blues has enjoyed airplay in Russia, Brazil, Australia and Japan as well as throughout Europe and the USA. Keith Dunn’s inventive harmonica playing and passionate singing is showcased in a variety of styles including instrumentals, swing, back porch and the humorous “Playing The Blues.”

An in demand live performer, Keith Dunn has brought his solo show to festival stages, schools, television and radio programs the world over and received along the way a performance of the year award from Talking Blues in Cologne, Germany. Alone With The Blues is a classic that appeals to indie, folk and blues fans alike.

Great!!!
What a surprise!!!
only harps and good voice. His play is very wonderful.

John Dixon

Incredible full blues from a harp and vocals
First CD I bought in years. All I had to do was listen to the snippets on his site and I was in awe. You have to get the CD to hear the best solos and licks, but it's well worth a listen just to find out what this guy is about. I'll bet you can't listen to the samples and then not have this in your collection...

CD Baby


A man and his harmonica. A harmonica and his man. Junior Wells and Sonny Boy Williamson meet Jean-Luc Godard in this epic, acoustic blues album featuring achin' harmonica and dynamic voice so clear and intimate that it sounds Live. This is a feeling you can't get from a band album; with his diverse range of styles, Keith Dunn is one not to be missed.

Keith's a modern-day throwback to an earlier time
Keith Dunn's CD Alone With The Blues has been played to death in my CD player for a couple of months now...when one orders a CD through CD Baby you expect a review....and I've been so remiss after promising to follow up.

My delay is by no means an indictment of the music...I already gave a mini-rave on Harp-L after hearing just a snippet of a couple of the tracks off this album. There are so few Blues harp/vocal artists today who could possibly speak or sing with the voice of a Keith Dunn. The sweetness of his vocals softens the political activism of his songs while keeping it very real (something I admire)....and that amazing percussion he creates both vocally and with his harp along with its jazzy, bluesy, almost sax-like tone ... even to allowing spaces and deep silences to underscore his lyrics (no overdubbing or other musicians)...makes it clear just how deeply he feels about his subject as in Strange things are Happening in the Neighborhood and Need to Make a Dollar. I didn't fully understand the message behind the brevity of the six-line long California Dream, mainly because I wanted to hear more of it. My favorite track remains Trouble Is Going On...although any musician putting time in on the road could surely relate to Keith's Playing the Blues lyrics of "bad hotels and hours of driving", and "you get to the club the sound system is broken - you've got one funky mike stand...". Altogether an excellent CD. I get more out of it with each play. Keith, who doesn't live in the States, is still the closest thing we have to being a modern-day throwback to the authentic American Blues sound.

Brian Baker

Excellent. Stripped to the bone.
I really enjoyed this. Recorded so that you feel like you are right next to Keith. There are no other instruments needed. I hope his next CD is also "alone" with his harp. Very soul-reaching.

Mal Davis

What a superb C.D.every BLUES fan should own it.
A C.D. every one should own,Keith's voice is fantastic & his Harmonica playing is nothing short of brilliant.Keep it up Keith & here's hoping for more of the same.

Russell turner


Love the honesty in these songs.

Marc de Grenoble

Absolument Excellent !!!
Une dexterite et une sonorite d'harmo qui font rever accompagnes seulement d'une voix fabuleuse: le top de mes CDs de blues !

James Thurgood

Pure Blues Harp at Its Best
A remarkable, refreshing recording. Keith Dunn plays with absolute authority, his rhythmic sense as forceful as any back-up band, his tone tremendous. This CD is a "must" for fans of blues harp.
