About Lew Jetton & 61 South...

​​​​​​Lew Jetton learned The Blues while working in the cotton fields of his native West Tennessee as a teenager and young man.  Musically, he had 2 of the best mentors you could think of.  While working in Jackson, Tennessee, he became acquainted with the legendary Carl Perkins. Later, after moving to Western Kentucky, he was befriended by blues legend Snooky Pryor, who hailed from just across the Ohio River in Southern Illinois.  Lew joined the blues band 61 South in 1994 as a guitar player, then took over as the frontman a year later, when the original singer, Fast Layne Hendrickson,  moved to New Orleans.  Since then,  they've become favorites on the Midwest club and festival circuit and Lew has continued to write and produce critically acclaimed blues music. 


Rain, the new CD from Lew Jetton & 61 South, continues to further Jetton's reputation as a clever songwriter, and dynamic, original vocalist, finishing in the top 40 of Roots Music Report's Contemporary Blues Releases for 2016! 

The songs on Rain range from poignant (Lay Me Down) to redemptive (Glory Train) to contemporary (Who's Texting You) to humorous (Move On, Yvonne). Think a little Stevie Ray Vaughan mixed with some Eric Clapton and Gary Clark Jr, then seasoned with some cajun and creole spices.
Rain joins the band's previous 2 releases, State Line Blues and Tales From A 2 Lane, as “Picks to Click” on XM/Sirius Radio's Bluesville Channel.

​ Rain features longtime 61 South bandmates, Erik, Eicholtz, Sam Moore, Dan Bell, Otis Walker, and James Sullivan along with several of Jetton's close friends, including 2-Time International Thumbpicking Champion and IBC Semi-Finalist Alonzo Pennington, former multi-instrumentalist for guitar legend Johnny Hiland, Solon Smith, former Lonnie Mack backup vocalist Miranda Louise, &  J.D. Wilkes, harp ace from Th' Legendary ShackShakers.
