Biografie

An under-sung institution of blues rock since the 1970s, Walter Trout's prolific songwriting and talented guitar playing has kept him on the road, performing, living and experimenting with the music he first fell in love with in his teens. Inspired to start playing after hearing his brother's Paul Butterfield, Cream and Jimi Hendrix records, Trout joined a string of local New Jersey bands before heading to Los Angeles in 1973 and landing himself a place in Jesse Ed Davis' group and backing the likes of Big Mama Thornton, Joe Tex and John Lee Hooker. He was recruited by blues revivalists Canned Heat in the early 1980s and later ended up playing with his hero John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, before striking out as the Walter Trout Band in 1989. His most successful work came on albums 'Prisoner of a Dream' (1990), 'Tellin' Stories' (1994) and 'Positively Beale Street' (1997), but he struggled with drug and alcohol problems which stifled his output.

Still marching to his own blues rock groove with his white Fender Stratocaster, Trout paid tribute to Chicago guitar hero Luther Allison on his 23rd studio album 'Luther's Blues' (2013) and drew his best set of reviews in years. That same year he received a diagnosis of cirrhosis of the liver but only stopped performing when he was told he needed a transplant. After a successful surgery, Trout got back out on the road to tour Europe and released album 'Battle Scars' in 2015.
