Robert Cray has been bridging the lines between blues, soul and R&B for the past four decades with five Grammy wins and over 20 acclaimed albums. Winner of multiple W. C. Handy Blues Awards and member of the Blues Hall of Fame, Robert Cray has toured concert halls, festivals, and arenas around the globe. Over the years, he has shared the stage with artists like Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, John Lee Hooker, BB King, and Bonnie Raitt.
Growing up in the Northwest, Robert Cray listened to the gospel of the Five Blind Boys of Mississippi, Bobby Bland’s soul, Jimi Hendrix’s rock guitar and the Beatles pop sounds. He has brought all these influences into play throughout his successful career. For his latest album, Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm (released April 28, 2017 / Jay-Vee Records), the Blues Hall of Famer traveled to Memphis with his friend, renowned Grammy Award winning producer Steve Jordan, to make a classic soul album with Hi Rhythm, the band that helped create that legendary sound.
