|With 5 Grammy Awards, 15 nominations, millions of record sales worldwide, and thousands of sold out performances, rock blues icon Robert Cray is considered "one of the greatest guitarists of his generation." In their April 2011 issue, Rolling Stone Magazine credits Cray with reinventing the blues with his "distinct, razor sharp guitar paying" that "introduced a new generation of mainstream rock fans to the language and form of the blues," with the release of Strong Persuader in 1986.
Since then, Cray has gone on to record fifteen Billboard charting studio albums, and he has written or performed with everyone from Eric Clapton to Stevie Ray Vaughan, from Bonnie Raitt to John Lee Hooker. Recently inducted in the Blues Hall of Fame at the age of 57, he is one of the youngest living legends to receive the prestigious honor. And, while he can look back over an astonishing three-decade career punctuated by his trademark sound and distinct playing style, Robert Cray is too busy moving forward on an amazing journey, that has him releasing his sixteenth studio album and embarking on yet another world tour.
