Mr. Sipp, ‘The Mississippi Blues Child,” is the alter ego of gospel guitarist Castro Coleman. One of the hottest new names in the blues world, Mr. Sipp made his debut on Malaco Records in 2015.
Castro Coleman was born in McComb, Mississippi, on August 25, 1976, and started playing guitar as a young child. Coleman recalls, “I was born a musician. Music was in my life from the moment I arrived; both of my parents were in singing groups and played some type of instrument. It’s just a natural part of me.” Early on he played in several gospel groups and later took a role behind the scenes playing on more than 50 gospel recordings while also learning the role of producer and honing his skills as a songwriter and entertainer.
“If there’s any justice in the blues world then Mr. Sipp should be destined to rise to the cream of the crop.” Cascade Blues Society
