Keith Stone is on a mission to play your blues away. His new album, The Prodigal Returns, takes you on a musical tour of New Orleans and Southern Louisiana where you can sample the richness of his musical heritage. Stone, a native of New Orleans, lays down a solid performance as he pays tribute to his city and her musical offspring who have influenced virtually every form of American roots music.

The Prodigal Returns is destined to become a classic New Orleans Blues album featuring Stone’s well written, original songs, stellar producing and horn arrangements by David Hyde, and mastering by the great Jerry Tubb, that all make this a sonic experience you won’t forget.
“Keith Stone’s new Release hits you like a fine Gumbo on a warm New Orleans Night, thick spicy and satisfying” – Richard L’hommedieu – Publisher
“From the jump, Keith Stone’s The Prodigal Returns, takes your mind to the heart of his hometown of Nawlins. The renderings on this album have the full flavor of a rich and thick blues gumbo. These tunes mix good-time soul, R&B and bottom-end funk together with mesmerizing blues to produce a sophisticated, wholly satisfying mix that goes down easy. Look forward to Stone’s passionate vocal stoutness set in front of a punchy horn section that highlights this overall triumphant Crescent City-drenched album.” – Cleve Baker/Confessing the BluesRadio Network
