We Get By Mavis Staples

Opening with a classic, Texas-style Blues complete with a rough 12-bar guitar groove, Mavis Staples kicks off her fourth album of the decade with the confidence that comes from near 70 years of performing. Written and produced by Ben Harper, ‘We Get By’ is a Blues based collection that leverages the weight of Staples’ Soul and Gospel vocals to bring a warm and endearing gravitas to each track.

The highlight, ‘Heavy On My Mind’, is a slow burning, intimately close and personal Blues ballad filled with heartache. You’d be forgiven for thinking Staples’ is in the room beside you.
