Hot! Kenny Wayne Shepherd


There are few artists whose names are synonymous with one instrument and how it’s played in service to an entire genre. Kenny Wayne Shepherd is one such artist. This Louisiana born guitarist has been selling millions of albums, shining a light on the rich blues of the past and forging ahead with his own modern twist on a classic sound that he has embodied since his teens. He met Stevie Ray Vaughan at age 7, and shared the stage with New Orleans legend Bryan Lee at 13. As an adult, he continues to create genre-defining blues-infused rock n’ roll. Here is a short music maker segment from an interview we taped with Kenny back in October 2000 on-stage before a performance at the TLA in Philadelphia, PA (USA).


“Studio Jams does wonders for the love of this music we call jazz. It puts old and new listeners in touch with what’s going on.”
