Release

The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band 'Lay it on Down' 

On the 21st of July, the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band will release their new album 'Lay it on Down' on Provogue (Joe Bonamassa, Beth Hart, Walter Trout, Eric Gales). Ahead of the release he has just released the title track from the forthcoming album. Kenny Wayne Shepherd is reaching unstoppable momentum and the proof is all over his eighth solo album 'Lay it on Down' . As a renowned hot rodder, it’s apt that Shepherd’s musical career has no reverse gear. Awards, acclaim and platinum album sales flash by in a blur, vanishing in the rear view mirror. 

In January Shepherd and his band entered the Echophone Studios in Shreveport, Louisiana, the mission statement was nothing if not ambitious: the greatest songs of Shepherd’s career. The opening chapters of Shepherd’s journey have a distinct sense of destiny. There was the family vinyl, the epiphany of meeting Stevie Ray Vaughan, the dubious first electric guitar (“A Strat-shaped Yamaha SE-150, made of crappy plywood”), the stage debut at thirteen and the record deal at sixteen, with 1995’s million selling debut album 'Ledbetter Heights' laying down his calling cards of soul-fingered fretwork and searingly honest songwriting.

Even as early singles like 'Déjà Voodoo' and 'Blue on Black' infiltrated the US top ten, and hysteria duly erupted around him. Shepherd’s artistic vision remained admirably mature on turn of the millennium million sellers like 'Trouble Is…(1997), Live On (1999)' and 'The Place you’re In (2004)'. He has supported The Rolling StonesB.B. King, Van Halen, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Aerosmith, Bob Dylan and theEagles amongst others, performs as part of the Experience Hendrix tour and is one third of supergroup The Rides with Stephen Stills and Barry Goldberg.
