Blues Legend Kenny Wayne Shepherd

25 years into his recording career, Kenny Wayne Shepherd continues to create blues-infused rock n’ roll. Shepherd has an enviable resume as an accomplished recording artist, a riveting live performer, and one of the most distinctive guitarists of his generation. Shepherd has sold millions of albums worldwide, received five GRAMMY nominations, two Billboard Music Awards, two Blues Music awards, plus a string of #1 mainstream rock singles.


There are few artists whose names are synonymous with one instrument and how it’s played in service to an entire genre. Utter the phrase “young blues rock guitarist” within earshot of anyone with a cursory knowledge of the modern musical vanguard and the first name fans will most likely respond with is Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

Louisiana-born axeman and songsmith has sold millions of albums while throwing singles into the top 10, shining a light on the rich blues of the past and forging ahead with his own modern twist on a classic sound he has embodied since his teens. In a 20-year recording career that began at just 16, Shepherd has established himself as an immensely popular recording artist, a consistently in-demand live act, and an influential force in a worldwide resurgence of interest in the blues.

At 16 years old, he signed his first record deal and burst onto the national scene with the release of his 1995 debut album Ledbetter Heights, which produced the radio hits “Deja Voodoo,” “Born with a Broken Heart,” and “Shame, Shame, Shame.” his relentless touring and success on rock radio helped to drive the album to platinum sales status. His 1998 sophomore effort Trouble Is… also went platinum, yielding such radio hits as “Blue on Black,” “True Lies,” and “Somehow, Somewhere, Someway.” 1999’s Live On spawned the radio hits “In 2 Deep”, “Shotgun Blues,” and “Last Goodbye.”

Kenny Wayne Shepherd is accompanied by band members Noah Hunt (vocalist), Chris Layton (drummer), and Joe Krown (pianist).
