"One of the premier singer/songwriter's in music today" - NYS Music

2019 THE FULL NELSON

DOUBLE DISC LIVE ALBUM

Recorded live over the course of two nights at the historic Nelson Odeon in Cazenovia, New York. Featuring songs from his catalog including Twenty One Rounds, Tell Me Why, No Horizon, Moonlight, Sunshine & Rain and many more.

This is by far the most raw recording Powell has released thus far and truly captures the essence of his live original show – complete with stories and audience participation.

John Hanus (guitar), Joe Bell (Bass) and Dom Scicchitano (Drums) join him for several fun full band versions of the tunes.

2018 SHELTER WITHOUT WALLS

DIGITAL EP

This six song digital EP features Powell’s signature raw sound, stripped down and bare. This is a roller coaster of an experience with songs like “Twenty One Rounds” and “Sad Day in Champion” that will rip your guts out and then a song like “Backseat Bingo” that will get you clapping along.

Americana music journalists have written about the song Poison Diamond “This is a really nice slow-burn of a song. It slowly unfurls and reveals itself on the back of sparse guitar, distant organ and shuffling drums. Powell’s voice is the clincher though, with just the right amount of grit and grain in his tone to convey the heavy emotion of the song. A plaintive ringing guitar solo is the icing on the cake.” – Post To Wire

2018 Classic Universe

DIGITAL EP

The debut album from Powell’s 5 piece band The Black River. Recorded at the beautiful Big Blue North studio in Utica, NY. Engineered and produced by the talented Jeff Aderman. Certainly a departure from Powell’s rootsy sound with added instrumentation and big clean tones, but still manages to spotlight his songwriting.

2016 Tied To The Rail

DIGITAL EP

“With the reverent simplicity of his soulful voice, an ax and a harmonica, he delivers nine heartfelt, timeless songs on his fourth album.  Conjuring up images of dusty railroad tracks and bible thumping preachers, “Tied to the Rail” combines folk, soul and a bit of country to create a sound that is sure to give you the feels.” -NYS Music

2014 KAPOW

DIGITAL EP

By enlisting some of the Central New York’s top musicians this album has a fun grooving vibe to it. “Ballads with bounce”. This album features drums, squeeze box, upright, horns, gospel singers and makes for a fun aesthetic and some nice driving songs.

2009 Replevin

DIGITAL EP

The debut solo album that really showcases him in the purest form. Much of the record is just him, his stories and a guitar. You can hear his influences Dylan, Prine, Van Zandt etc… all over it along with several songs that have stood the test of time and have become staples in his live shows.
