Internet series come and go but few attain longevity. That’s what sets Daryl Hall’s Live From Daryl’s House apart from the rest. His next episode, debuting January 15, marks his 50th edition of the program.

To celebrate the landmark 50th episode, Daryl Hall gets back to his own blues and gospel roots with Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Keb Mo. The latest installment of the Webby Award-winning series debuts on Jan. 15 at

The Compton, CA-born blues and gospel singer, guitarist and writer started his career playing steel drums and upright bass in a calypso band, before starting to record in the ‘70s with Jefferson Airplane violinist Papa John Creach in an R&B band when he was 21 years old. Keb Mo has been nominated for a Grammy six times in his career, winning three, including a spot in this year’s Best Blues Album category for his latest, The Reflection, released last summer on Yolabelle/Rykodisc.

Said Keb Mo of his Live from Daryl’s House experience: “To work with an artist the caliber of Daryl is a great honor. I’ve admired his work for many years and for me, this was a great honor.”

Daryl and Keb Mo collaborate on a seven-song set that includes a Hall track, Cab Driver, from his 2003 solo album, Can’t Stop Dreaming, as well as the Daryl Hall and John Oates hit single, Everything Your Heart Desires, from the 1988 album, Oooh Yeah!

The two also perform five songs from Keb Mo’s The Reflection, including the hit single, The Whole Enchilada and We Don’t Need It, which features a video with Camryn Manheim in a poignant interpretation of how family bonds can transcend hard times, with a video that can be seen here: Other Keb Mo songs featured on this very special 50th Live from Daryl’s House include All the Way, Inside Outside and My Baby’s Tellin’ Lies.

Says Daryl: “Keb Mo defines the phrase nice guy” His smooth effortless soul and blues style works perfectly in my house. Can’t wait to work with him again!”

The past five years have marked a steady stream of superlatives and recognition for Live from Daryl’s House, with Hall receiving a Webby Award for Best Variety series from more than 10,000 entries at the 14th annual ceremony three years ago at N.Y.’s Cipriani Wall Street before garnering an O Music Award from MTV last year.
