ABOUT KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD BAND –
“Called a blues prodigy for years, Kenny Wayne Shepherd has now vaulted to master.” -Steve Morse, Boston Globe
There are few artists whose names are synonymous with one instrument and how it’s played in service to an entire genre.
In 2022 rock and blues music fans will be able to see The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band perform Trouble Is… in its entirety in select markets around the country. The Trouble Is… 25th Anniversary Tour dates will kick off at The Strand Theatre in Shreveport, Louisiana – the very same theater they celebrated their inaugural record release of Trouble Is… 25 years before and work their way around the country. The February 12th show will be streamed and later in the year will be released on DVD/Blu-Ray along with a very special Anniversary Package celebrating its 25th birthday.
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. Twenty five years into his recording career Kenny Wayne Shepherd continues to create genre-defining blues-infused rock n’ roll. Shepherd has built an enviable resume as an accomplished recording artist, a riveting live performer and one of the most talented and distinctive guitarists of his generation. Shepherd has received five GRAMMY® nominations, two Billboard Music Awards, as well as a pair of Orville H. Gibson awards, the Blues Foundation’s Keeping The Blues Alive award and two Blues Music awards. He’s had seven #1 blues albums and a string of #1
mainstream rock singles.
Trouble Is… went on to sell over 1,000,000 copies in the U.S. and was certified Platinum by the RIAA. It featured 4 top ten hits, “Slow Ride”, “Somehow, Somewhere, Someway”, “Everything Is Broken” and of course, the #1 Mainstream Rock hit “Blue on Black”, spending an astonishing 104 weeks on the Billboard Charts. Shepherd won two Billboard Music Awards, including for Rock Song of the Year, and received his first of many Grammy nominations. Twenty-five years later, Kenny Wayne Shepherd is still releasing groundbreaking music, accumulating awards, touring the world and performing for ever-expanding audiences while those few critics have likely found new career paths.
Trouble Is… was produced by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Jerry Harrison and was the beginning of a long-term collaboration between Harrison and Shepherd. The album also features musical powerhouses including Chris Layton, Tommy Shannon and Reese Wynans as well as James Cotton.
