Kerri Powers Starseeds – Folk Roots Radio Interview

Blues roots singer-songwriter Kerri Powers is getting ready to release her new album “Starseeds”. Kerri Powers produced one of our favourite recordings of 2014, her stunning self-titled album. According to Kerri, the new album was recorded during a transitional and healing phase in her life. “Songs are starseeds. Lightworkers often appearing from an inexplicable place and time with empathetic intention. Our world needs healing and connection now more than ever.” Produced with Eric Michael Lichter, Starseeds features eight original songs and two great covers – Blind Faith’s “Can’t Find My Way Home” and Gene Clark‘s “Polly”. It’s clear that this new recording is again going to do very well – and, hopefully, will get Kerri Powers up on to the radar of a lot more people – she really is the real deal. To learn more about the new album, Folk Roots Radio caught up with Kerri Powers at home in Connecticut. You can find an interview with Kerri Powers recorded after the release of her self-titled album on the website HERE. Visit Kerri Powers online at kerripowers.com. Photo: Jean Molodetz. Music: Kerri Powers “Bicycle Man”, “Free Bird Flying”, “Grace and Harmony” and “Can’t Find My Way Home” from “Starseeds” (2018, Self).

Kerri Powers – Folk Roots Radio Interview

After years out of the spotlight to raise a family, New England based singer-songwriter Kerri Powers returned to the music scene in 2014 with her stunning self-titled album, “Kerri Powers”.

The Best Albums Of 2014

So here they are… my ten favourite albums of 2014. As you can imagine, it wasn’t easy to narrow this list down to the Top 10 which is why I’ve included the next five as honourable mentions. And to be honest, any of the albums in that group could easily have made it into my Best of 2014 on a different day. Indeed, I could easily have included another five after that… and another five after that, but I needed to draw a line somewhere which I duly did.
