New CD coming from Jeff Phelps in 2014!  FINALLY!

The music, which incorporates stellar guitar and bass work from long time musical collaborator Marcel Miner, will recapture much of the style and lyrical turns that have helped maintain the long time, underground, international interest in the original "Magnetic Eyes" LP.

Look for music snippets to be posted here over May and June as the final recording process winds down and production efforts ramp up.  If you haven't already been added to our mailing list, please send your email address to to be notified as we reach project milestones, and eventually schedule live performances.
