Sid Whelan

blues, americana

Sid Whelan is a blues-inspired Americana guitarist and songwriter who is becoming known for his well-crafted lyrics and his harmonically-rich guitar voicings.

In 2013 He created the band Whelan, and released the group's first CD 'Flood Waters Rising' a blues-inspired collection of nine songs, which Blues Matters (UK) called "…a definitive return of a great musician."

In the Fall of 2016 Sid took a break from performing to focus on Whelan's 3rd album, which is almost completed and due out in the Fall of 2017. It features the return of co-producer Lora-Faye (Arthur Moon) and feature's Whelan's live band along with instrumental and vocal guests such as Valerie Naranjo, Darryl Tookes, Matthew Whitaker, Richard Huntley and Ariel Guidry. This new album will represent a shift even further into Sid's concept of the blues as a beginning rather than an end.

"Whelan is a voice that sounds like Tab Benoit and twists and turns it into something not worth forgetting… 'Flood Waters Rising', the title of the album, is where Whelan shines. The Blues song could be mistaken for a classic."
