Steve Winwood Background
Hailing from Handsworth, Birmingham, England, Steve Winwood
is the son of a semi-professional musician/foundryman, Lawrence. His father mainly played the clarinet and saxophone, while
Winwood developed a penchant for Dixieland jazz and swing as a boy. He first entertained publicly with his dad and older brother
as part of the Ron Atkinson Band at the tender age of eight. While he was a student at the Great Barr School, Winwood was
a regular on Birmingham's R&B scene. He played the guitar and the Hammond B-3 organ. He also backed up blues legends like
T-Bone Walker, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley, Otis Spann Chuck Berry and more!At the age of 15, Steve Winwood
served as the linchpin for the Spencer Davis Group, cultivating a slew of chart successes along the way with timeless classics
like "I'm a Man," "Gimme Some Lovin'" and "Keep On Running." The global recognition of these tracks boosted Winwood's confidence
and fortified his resolve to discover new rhythmic opportunities.
In 1967, Winwood departed from the Spencer Davis Group
and helped to form the group, Traffic. Coveted for their diversity and brilliantly crafted tunes, Traffic consistently bucked
tradition to celebrate a string of sounds and inspirations. Milestone albums likeJohn Barleycorn Must DieandMr. Fantasycemented
their standing as one of the most significant British groups of the '60s and '70s.
Hungry to take a turn with other
creative collaborations, Winwood exited Traffic in 1969 and signed on into a new group established by Ginger Baker (drummer)
and Eric Clapton (guitarist). Clapton, Baker and Winwood were eventually joined by Rick Grech (bassist). Together, they became
Blind Faith, which many critics billed as the first rock supergroup. Blind Faith also cultivated international acclaim, with
songs like "Can't Find My Way Home," which continues to stand out as one of Winwood's most celebrated successes.
1970, Winwood reestablished Traffic and steered the group to success with lauded albums like Shoot Out At The Fantasy FactoryandLow
Heeled Spark of High Heeled Boys.
Five years later, Traffic divided once again, with Winwood tempted by the magnetism
of solo projects and creative collaborations. In 1977, Winwood made his solo debut. His debut symbolized his intrepid new
creative course. Such a transition didn't come as a surprise for those who followed Winwood's extraordinary career. Starting
with Traffic and encompassing through such hallmark solo albums as Roll With It and Back In The High Life, Winwood has fostered
a fidgety creative spirit, cultivating rich musical traditions such as English folk, R&B, Delta blues and West African
calypso, and blurring these inspirations within in his own authentic brand of music.
Winwood's solo career produced
an extraordinary inventory of pop tunes like "When You See A Chance," "Back in The High Life," "Higher Love" and "Valerie."
His solo album,About Time, continued to bolster that success, earning him one of his highest Billboard chart rankings.
Winwood revived his creative collaboration with Eric Clapton. Nominated for a pair of Grammy Awards, their CD/DVDLive At Madison
Square Gardenpresented fans with some of the most electric shows of their combined careers.
Today, Winwood continues
to take stages around the planet. Compounded to his many accomplishments as a solo artist, Winwood remains in high demand
for creative partnerships with other talents. His unique Hammond organ has been included in "Voodoo Chile" (Jimi Hendrix)
and "Baggage Claim" (Miranda Lambert).
