About Keb Mo
Keb Mo dived into the music scene at a young age, mastering a variety of
musical instruments before coming of age in the early 70s. His early inspirations were blues and gospel, which shaped his
instrumental choices and shepherded him into the various blues genres that spawned around that time, including delta blues
and country blues.
His earliest days on the music scene would be with Keb Mo banging the steel drums and slapping the
biggest of basses as he played the upright in a local calypso band. He would become a backing member of various groups through
his early career, making a name for himself as a skilled performer that could handle pressure and learn on the job. His early
collaborations included working with Papa John Creach, a member of famous rock band Jefferson Airplane, which garnered him
his first mainstream success after some of the tracks he worked on were certified gold.
Keb soon got his solo career
into full swing under Chocolate City/Casablanca Records in the early 80s. His solo work continued while he also was constantly
working alongside some of the biggest names in the 80s blues scene, including the Whodunit Band, Joe Turner, and Albert Collins.
He would also be find inspiration from blues icon Robert Johnson, with him dedicating part of his self titled album in honor
of his mentor. As Keb Mo continued to release solo work, accolades and praise consistently fell upon him as he was nominated
for a Best New Blues Artist award at the Long Beach Blues Festival, and soon after scooped his first ever Grammy Award for
best album while working alongside Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt.
Nearly thirty five years later, Keb Mo is still
on the cusp of the blues scene, putting out new hit albums year after year that are as fresh and innovative as his work of
nearly three decades past.
Keb Mo's big breakout would come in 1994, as his self titled
debut dropped under the newly acquired moniker of Keb Mo. The album would be a critical hit, garnering coveted four star ratings
from both Rolling Stone and AllMusic. Under the production of John Porter, the album would feature the hits "Come On in My
Kitchen" and "Kindhearted Woman Blues", which would lay the foundation for the signature Keb Mo sound that would continue
to invade the airwaves for decades into the future.
The blues world was waiting with bated breath for Keb Mo's sophomore
follow up, which came two years later in the form of Just Like You. Again produced under John Porter, the album would be a
monumental moment for Keb Mo as it picked up his first grammy win for Best Contemporary Blues Album. The album featured a
variety of collaborators, giving each track unique spark that makes this album an interesting journey through the many avenues
of Keb Mo's musical mind.
2011's The Reflection proved that Keb Mo still had what it takes, as his eleventh album would
score yet another Grammy nomination, this time for Best Blues Album. The album fared well with critics and the tracks "One
of These Nights" and "My Baby's Tellin' Lies" are sure to be part of blues canon for decades to come.
