I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band is a veritable who’s who in rock and blues.  The band features  long-time vocalist Noah Hunt, plus drummer Chris Layton, a 2014 inductee into the Musicians Hall of Fame as a member of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, ex-Firm bassist Tony Franklin and keyboardist Riley Osbourn (the latter is the former keyboardist for Willie Nelson).
The April 2015 tour follows Kenny’s highly successful 2014 European tour, Classic Rock Magazine said Kenny was "…a figurehead for the next generation and no longer needs to prove himself to the fiercely protective old guard."  While Metal Express said "Seeing these guys in full flow is what music is all about, passion, energy, emotion and is an absolute joy to watch."

  1. Kenny Wayne’s most recent studio album "GOIN’ HOME" follows his collaboration with the blues-rock supergroup THE RIDES, which features Shepherd alongside Stephen Stills (CSN / CSN&Y / Buffalo Springfield) and Barry Goldberg (Electric Flag). Their 2013 album "Can’t Get Enough" was critically acclaimed the world over and appeared in countless "Best Of 2013" album polls.
"GOIN’ HOME" (Mascot Label Group), is an exploration into the music of Shepherd’s biggest influences, and features guest performances by some of his closest friends including Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh, Warren Haynes, Keb’ Mo’, Robert Randolph, Kim Wilson (Fabulous Thunderbirds), Pastor Brady Blade, Sr. and the Rebirth Brass Band.

The album features songs originally recorded by some of Shepherd’s heroes such as B.B. King, Freddie King, Albert King, Bo Diddley, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Lee Dorsey and many other icons of the Blues.  Kenny Wayne reached deep into their catalogues and chose songs that inspired him when he was learning to play the guitar.
Says Kenny Wayne - "The end result is a great recording that I believe pays homage to the spirit of the original music," says Shepherd, "At the same time, it shows our appreciation for the musicians and genre that have inspired us to make music for decades."
