More than just a best-selling artist, respected guitarist, expressive singer, and activist,
BONNIE RAITT has become an institution in American music. Her latest release, Slipstream, marked her return to studio recording after seven years, it sold over a quarter-million copies, making it one of the top selling independent albums, and earned Raitt her 10th GRAMMY Award (Best Americana Album). From the New York Times to People Magazine, ‘Slipstream’ was also lauded in numerous top critics’ lists for album of the year. 10-Time GRAMMY Award Winner * Member of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame
A casual listen to the BOZ SCAGGS discography makes one thing obvious: he is both a musical seeker and a man of sizable talent as a singer, songwriter and guitarist. His explorations in blues and R&B, Rock and Jazz have produced lasting work and a career that has brought with it acclaim, a loyal following, and an enduring respect among musicians.
With MEMPHIS, his first studio album in five years, Scaggs recorded at the landmark Royal Studios, where Willie Mitchell produced hitmakers such as Al Green. Scaggs first made his mark in the late 60s, playing with fellow Texan Steve Miller, then branching out with his self-titled solo record featuring the Muscle Shoals Horns and Duane Allman on the epic song “Loan Me A Dime.” A lengthy career unfolded with hits “Lowdown,” “Lido Shuffle,” “What Can I Say” and the ballad “We’re All Alone.” In addition to touring extensively with his own band, Scaggs continues to work with Donald Fagen and Michael McDonald as The Dukes of September.
