For those of you who are familiar with Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, unfortunately, singer/guitarist Josh Phillips flown the coop.

But it's not all bad news, the departure was just what Phillips needed to start his new project, the Josh Phillips Folk Festival gives him the freedom and time to record and tour at his own pace. The result has come in the form of a great new album, Wicker, and a successful tour with Boston fusion/funk band Dopapod.

The Charleston City Paper has a solid piece on Phillips and life post-Booty Band.

The Josh Phillips Folk Festival will be playing The Pour House on Wednesday, September 9, at at 9 p.m. Tickets are on sale for $6 online.
