Live From Somewhere, on Blue Star records, is Mark Nomad’s tenth album and his first without any of his own original songs.
Recorded completely live with just an acoustic guitar, voice and harmonica, Live From Somewhere is Nomad’s homage to the Delta bluesmen who first inspired him and contains vintage classics he’s been performing ever since.
Featuring songs by Muddy Waters, Fred McDowell, Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker and other masters, Live From Somewhere also features a unique version of “Last Time,” an old Rolling Stones song, bringing it back full circle to the blues that first propelled them.
Known for his incendiary electric work with his band, Nomad is equally at home in a solo acoustic setting. There is nothing more plaintive than a lonesome slide on an acoustic guitar, a lone voice and a wailing harmonica.
