Suitcase is the ninth studio album by Delta blues artist Keb' Mo' (real name Kevin Moore) released in June 2006. Suitcase sees Moore re-unite with producer John Porter who helped Moore put together his first few commercial releases up to Slow Down, where the two started working on projects with others. In this lieu, Moore worked with a variety of producers gaining a varied production experience, along with producing himself. In this time, Porter (who even prior to collaborating with Moore on Keb' Mo' was a highly experienced producer) moved into new areas of production and produced artists such as Taj Mahal, Bob Dylan and others. The critical and consumer response to this album is higher than the previous few albums by Moore and this can be traced to the reunion of the two, among other factors.

One song on the album, "I See Love", is used as the theme song to the CBS television comedy series Mike & Molly, which aired from 2010 to 2016.
