Mr. Sipp is no stranger to the entertainment industry. With over 22 years in the Gospel genre then he realized one day he was playing the blues all the time. He is a firm believer in Willie Dixon’s quote, “The blues is the roots, everything else is the fruit”. He knows that in some way or another the blues plays a part in each of our lives regardless to what we may listen to or believe. We all have the blues!! Mr. Sipp is definitely living the life that he loves and that’s MUSIC!
“Mr. Sipp’s The Mississippi Blues Child is the musical version of the perfect Gumbo. Start with a plate of R&B, add a splash of funk, two shakes of gospel, a dash of rock, and then slather it all in the Blues. 14 songs (13 written or co-written by Castro Coleman), that brings Mr. Sipp to a whole new level. You can hear the experience he has gained in his constant touring. His guitar playing is as smooth as ever. His vocals hug you with emotion and the band holds the groove the entire time. Whether he is telling you his story (“TMBC”), starting a party (“Sipp Slide”), channeling the classic R&B sound of the 60’s (“Hold It In The Road”), or bearing his heart (“Say The Word”), you feel as if he is speaking directly to you. To quote Sipp…on this one he “Knocks A Hole In It!”
