Jeff plans to record the follow-up to ‘Southern Son’ early in 2022.
Southern Son continues to remain on the essential blues charts, charting #25 on the Living Blues Radio Chart in June. The August 2021 issue of BLUES BYTES, reviewing Southern Son, writes, “Fetterman’s powerful brand of blues includes healthy doses of rock, soul, and funk, and it’s all in play on his most recent release. An extremely enjoyable album that really showcases Jeff Fetterman and his musical vision. Blues and blues-rock fans alike will love this one.”

Press Is Excited about Jeff Fetterman
“Jeff Fetterman has released his best work to date. Jeff is a true, dyed-in-the-wool blues-rock force. He may be from Pennsylvania, but he is surely a Southern Son. Trust me when I say, you’ll want this album in your collection and you’ll play it again and again.“
“Southern Son is a solid album which ranges across blues and other styles, including a couple of noteworthy songs, making it a good listen.”
“Southern Son” has so many positive attributes…when the opening track ended at 4:26 I was among Jeff Fetterman’s biggest fans. Fetterman is a very accomplished guitarist and enjoyable vocalist, always flexible enough to match voice with style. In addition he’s a very clever and accomplished lyricist.“
