DIGGING DEEP...

A genuine colossus in British rock since his earliest days with the Spencer Davis Group, then Traffic, Blind Faith and Go, Steve Winwood is an award winning multi-instrumentalist who was a child prodigy and has since blossomed into a cornerstone artist. Not only a superbly gifted guitarist, keyboards player and drummer, Winwood is an exmplary songwriter with an amazing voice that gets under the skin of his material and propels it into the heart and soul of the listener. Winner of Grammy Awards and a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer (with Traffic in 2004), Steve also enjoys the status of the prestigious BMI Icon for his enduring influence on generations of music makers. Apart from a sequence of fabulously well-made solo albums, which we'll look fondly at soon, Winwood has always been in demand as a guest player. He appears on The Jimi Hendrix Experience epic Electric Ladyland, on the Tommy project, Lou Reed's Berlin, John Martyn's Inside Out, Robert Palmer's Sneakin' Sally Through The Alley, Marianne Faithfull's Broken English, Eric Clapton's Back Home and on his old friend Vivian Stanshall's marvellously quirky Sir Henry at Rawlinson End. Those being just the tip of a huge iceberg.
