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.
The Mississippi Blues Child Is Back!
The multiple award-winning Blues guitarist Mr. Sipp “The Mississippi Blues Child” released his new album entitled Knock A Hole In It through the legendary Malaco Records.
Prepare for twelve brand new tracks of furious fretwork, sizzling solos and vicious licks that have become the identifying features Sipp has built his name on. With this album he is bringing in a diverse landscape of sounds and concepts that is sure to be enjoyed by old fans of the Blues; while also attracting new ones.
This is the work of a true Bluesman. He’s bringing his six-string finesse to create classic Blues guitar magic paired with a modern sensibility in his songwriting. His impressive vocals can transition from intense emotion to heartfelt tenderness while never sound forced.
Fresh off of his excellent portrayal of the late Blues master B.B. King for CMT’s new series Sun Records, it seems that Sipp is well on his way to being a legend himself. Don’t miss the latest chapter in the book of TMBC.
