Jeff Powers to be interviewed on KCAA Radio Oct. 29

Singer-songwriter Jeff Powers, known for penning such heartfelt songs as "13 Seconds 67 Shots" (about the tragic Kent State massacre) and others, is interviewed live on the Linda Salvin Show, heard live over KCAA Radio 1050 AM, Monday, October 29, 4-5 p.m. Pacific Time (7-8 Eastern Time). Noted psychic Dr. Salvin talks with Jeff about his burgeoning music career, and will likely ask some thought-provoking metaphysical and spiritual questions as well. Tune in live online at . Should make for some some really fun listening!  
   Powers - whose sound and songwriting style was favorably compared to rock icon Bob Dylan in a recent review by Music News Nashville critic, Chuck Dauphin - recently played to an enthusiastic audience at the famed Elbo Room in Chicago. Jeff combines vocals strongly reminiscent of Neil Young with the wordsmith abilities of Bob Dylan; as well as the passionate anger and love of the late John Lennon with some Eric Clapton-esque guitar work. 

   The thirteen tracks on his latest self-titled CD songs encompass elements of Americana, Roots, Blues and some Rock. "These are songs i felt I needed to put out first and they work or sit together, if you will, as a whole," explains Powers.

  Each song tells a story - "Wild Child (The Ballad of Brian Power)" is "a remembrance to an urban legend, someone I grew up with and knew very well... he was an exciting and very funny guy who was also crazy dangerous and deeply flawed." "Gypsy Girl (Ode to Ani DiFranco) "was inspired by a radio interview with DiFranco that I happened to hear."
