Kelly Joe Phelps and Corinne West at the Fretboard Journal

Singer-songwriters Corinne West and Kelly Joe Phelps have had lengthy careers as solo artists but now are collaborating together as a duo. While on tour through the Pacific Northwest, we had the pair stop by the Fretboard Journal offices, where we filmed this version of their song “Night Falls Away Singing.” We also recorded a podcast with the pair.

As guitarists, we couldn’t help but notice that both Phelps and West perform on identical guitars, Martin HD-28s. It’s rare when you find a duo performing on the exact same instruments, but we’re not complaining – they sounded fantastic together.
