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. Spencer Davis Group enjoyed a string of chart success by way of such enduring classics as “Keep On Running” “Gimme Some Lovin’” and “I’m A Man”. In 1967, Winwood left the Spencer Davis Group and 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. Blind Faith staples such as “Can’t Find My Way Home” continue to rank among Winwood’s finest achievements. In 1970, Winwood reformed Traffic and guided a highly successful run founded on such popular albums as 'The Low Heeled Spark Of High Heeled Boys' and 'Shoot Out At The Fantasy Factory'. By 1975, Traffic splintered as the allure of solo projects and new creative partnerships proved too tempting to resist. 1977’s solo debut 'Steve Winwood' signaled a bold new artistic direction and 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. Beginning with Traffic and extending through such landmark solo albums as the Grammy Award winning 'Back In The High Life' and 'Roll With It', Winwood has nurtured a restless creative spirit, mining rich musical traditions such as Delta Blues, English Folk, R&B, Afro-Caribbean & Brazilian rhythms, and merging these diverse influences within his own unmistakable sound. Winwood continues to perform throughout the world and record new music, furthering his impressive legacy. He remains one of the most important and influential artists in all of popular music.
