About STEVE WINWOOD:
For more than five decades, Steve Winwood has remained a primary figure in rock ‘n’ roll, a respected innovator who has helped to create some of the genre’s most celebrated achievements. Winwood burst into prominence in 1963 with the Spencer Davis Group and since that time his celebrated skills as a composer, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist have developed an impressive catalog of popular music.
In 1967, Winwood co-founded Traffic. Beloved for their eclectic style and superbly crafted songs, Traffic routinely defied convention to celebrate a host of perse sounds and influences. Landmark albums such as Mr. Fantasy and John Barleycorn Must Die confirmed their position as one of the most important British groups of the 1960’s and 1970’s. Eager to try his hand with other creative partnerships, Winwood left Traffic in 1969 to form a new group called Blind Faith with Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker. The pairing of Winwood with Cream’s Eric Clapton,Ginger Baker and later, former Family bassist Rick Grech, created what many critics dubbed rock first supergroup.
Winwood’s solo career has yielded a rich catalog of popular songs including “Back In The High Life,”“When You See A Chance,” “Valerie,” and “Higher Love”. His most recent solo album, About Time, has continued that success, earning Winwood one of his highest Billboard chart entries. Winwood has since renewed his creative partnership with Eric Clapton. Their expansive CD and DVDLive At Madison Square Garden was nominated for two Grammy Awards and rewarded their many fans with some of the most exciting performances of their careers. Subsequent tours of the United States and Japan make clear the lasting appreciation fans have for their unique talents.
While rightfully acknowledged for his many achievements, Steve Winwood forges ahead undaunted,continuing to create and perform new and exciting material. He remains one of the most important and influential artists in all of popular music.
