Biography

Signed to a major-label record deal by impresario Irving Azoff at 16, blues-rock guitarist and songwriter Kenny Wayne Shepherd exploded on the scene in the mid-'90s. His debut album garnered massive radio airplay and media attention on its way to topping the blues charts and being certified platinum. Since then, his aggressive, clean, and meaty rocking country-blues style has sent all but one of his albums to the top of the blues charts and seven of his singles into the Top 10. Three of his albums have been certified platinum and another gold. Shepherd's signature song, 1998's scorching "Blue on Black," topped the rock charts as a single. 2014's Goin' Home not only hit number one at blues, but landed inside the Top 100 on the U.S. album charts. He has been nominated for five Grammy Awards, has received two Billboard Music Awards, two Blues Music Awards, and two Orville H. Gibson Awards. 
 It has been a decade since the Grammy-nominated ‘Live in Chicago’ captured the ferocity of Kenny Wayne Shepherd and his band’s live performance. The release of ‘Straight To You: Live’ comes during a time when there is no live music and the world looks a very different place to 12 months previously.
