Steve Winwood Announces June Uk Tour

For more than four 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.

From bursting into prominence at 15 in 1963 with the Spencer Davis Group, Winwood has since co-founded Traffic - one of the most important British groups of the 60s & 70s; joined what is often considered rock’s first ‘supergroup’ with Cream’s Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker and former Family bassist Rick Grech; and had a successful solo career in his own right following his debut solo album in 1977.

As a composer, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist Winwood has developed an impressive catalogue of popular music including landmark solo albums such as the Grammy Award winning Back In The High Life and Roll With It. He has nurtured a restless creative spirit, mining rich musical traditions such as Delta blues, English Folk, R&B, and West African calypso and merging these diverse influences within his own unmistakable sound. His most recent solo album, About Time, has continued that success, earning Winwood one of his highest Billboard chart entries.

It should come as no surprise to learn that many honours have been bestowed on Steve Winwood. He is a recipient of the Ivor Novello Outstanding Song Collection and the Musicians Union Classic Rock Award—honours both voted for by his peers. He has also received an honorary Doctorate Degree in Music from Berkeley College Of Music as well as a second Doctorate from Aston University in his hometown of Birmingham, England. On June 5th, he will be inducted into the Walk Of Fame in Nashville, TN.

While rightfully acknowledged for his many achievements, Steve Winwood forges ahead undaunted, continuing to create and perform new and exciting material. He remains one of the most important and influential artists in all of popular music.
