Overview

After 35 years in the industry and five Grammy Awards Cray now tours with the latest incarnation of his band featuring Tony Braunagal, Jim Pugh and Richard Cousins. The Virginia-born blues singer and guitarist first began performing in his early teens when his original ambitions of becoming an architect were side-lined in favour of his newly formed band Steakface, whose early music was inspired by artists such as Albert Collins, Freddie King and Muddy Waters. Over the years Cray and the various members of his band have earned a reputation of ruining the blues genre. However, over the years their music began to be seen in a more enlightened and revolutionary light as having transformed the genre rather than destroyed it. The band's latest album This Time further demonstrates the ways in which their music has evolved and matured with time and features creative contributions from each band member. Blues forms the basic foundation of their music but their songs often contain soulful undertones with a splash of rock'n'roll supplying audiences with an eclectic mixtures of sounds.
