about

New Orleans soul man Les Getrex has traveled a long road to make 300 Miles, his first full-scale album. From his childhood days in the city's musically rich Sixth Ward, through stints with Crescent City R&B stars like Johnny Adams, Lee Dorsey, Ernie K-Doe, to an eight-year residency as guitarist in the Fats Domino orchestra and another five years with the late Rockin' Dopsie & his Zydeco Twisters, Les has paid a whole lot of dues before emerging finally as a featured artist in his own right. Les has developed a repertoire of well-crafted original tunes from his own pen and in collaboration with Motown veteran songwriters Greg Clark and Johnny Maxwell, that are reflected on this album.

Tracks on this album:
1 300 Miles
2 One Believer
