Biography

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 guitarist" within earshot of anyone with even a cursory knowledge of the modern musical vanguard and the first name they are most likely to respond with will be Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Still barely in his 30s, the Louisiana born ... Read more in Amazon's Kenny Wayne Shepherd Store

Product Description

(2014/Provogue) 12 tracks.
The album is not only a wide insight into Shepherd's musical influences, but also includes the dozen guest appearances of some of his close friends and the greatest contemporary musicians such as Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh, Warren Haynes, Keb 'Mo', Robert Randolph, Kim Wilson (Fabulous Thunderbirds) Pastor Brady Blade Sr. and the Rebirth Brass Band.

"Goin 'Home" contains songs that were originally recorded by Shepherds idols like BB King, Albert King, Bo Diddley, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Lee Dorsey and many other blues greats. He reached deep into their record box and chose the songs that inspired him when he still learned to play the guitar.

"The result is a great album, which, as I believe the original music proves all the glory." Said the 36-year-old musician. "At the same time it expresses our admiration for the musicians and the genre, because we all make music for decades."

Shepherd's band is a veritable "Who's Who" of rock and blues. In addition to the long-standing singer Noah Hunt act drummer Chris Layton (since 2014, a new addition to the Musicians Hall Of Fame as a member of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble), the former The Firm bassist Tony Franklin and keyboardist Riley Osbourn with, the Shepherd met by chance, as of yet played in Willie Nelson's band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Home, Kenny 8 May 2014
By Kulgan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
So, first ever recording back home in Shreveport, Louisiana - sounds like a good excuse to raid the influences and heroes archive, and that's exactly what Kenny & the band have done here; and invited some friends to sit in, friends like Warren Haynes, Joe Walsh, Robert Randolph.

But, this isn't self-indulgent, nor is it another mere covers album; the tracks have been recorded "live" in the studio, the old fashioned way, on tape with the original feel & vibe of the tracks coming through, though with the KWS stamp all over them. Kenny even takes on a few of the vocal duties, noticeably on the Muddy Water's selections, and while he doesn't come close to the power, he catches the phrasing almost perfectly.

The Deluxe version of the album has 3 extra tracks, the latter 2, Trick bag & Can You Hear Me revisiting his Louisiana heroes, Earl King & Lee Dorsey & Howlin' Wolf's 300lbs of Joy.

In short, this album is as much fun to listen to as it probably was to record.

5.0 out of 5 stars He's Hit A Home Run 12 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Is this one of his best recordings? There seems to be a bit more variation in his music with added extra brass in some of his songs
but it adds a lot of extra light and shade to his material, this may sound a little surprising each track has it's own identity in which Kenny Wayne Shepherd proudly presents his blues influences throughout the whole album. A stunning album!! If you have the blues
or need the blues this one will definitely do the trick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to his brilliant best 11 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
KWS have exceeded even my expectations with this release with Kenny looking back to his blues (and R&B) roots to serve up a brilliant new album. Having recently seen the band in far from ideal conditions (in genteel quintessentially English Cheltenham!!) and heard a couple of the tracks , I was keener than ever to get my hands on the cd. I was not disappointed! "You done lost your good thing!", the BB King number is my particular favourite and shows Kenny's deft guitar touch excellently, but then the very next track "You can't tell a book by the cover" is an upbeat contrast again brilliantly delivered.
Seriously, for blues fans, get this album! You won't be disappointed. And non blues fans? Still buy it, you may well become a convert to this still young master blues guitarist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kenny Wayne Shepherd de luxe cd 9 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After hearing a track of Kennys new cd Goin Home on Planet Rock and seeing a review I had to have it. It like his previous cd but thus us fabulous.
Some great guests and a fabulous brass section on some tracks coupled with Kennys exceptional guitar playing make this a cd you must have if you like the blues.
