Article Index

Utter the phrase "young blues rock guitarist" within earshot of anyone with even a cursory knowledge of the modern musical vanguard and the first name they are most likely to respond with will be Kenny Wayne Shepherd. The Louisiana born axeman and songsmith has sold millions of albums while throwing singles into the Top 10, shining a light on the rich blues of the past and forging ahead with his own modern twist on a classic sound he has embodied since his teens. 

In a 20-year recording career that began when he was just 16, Shepherd has established himself as an immensely popular recording artist, a consistently in-demand live act and an influential force in a worldwide resurgence of interest in the blues. 

From television performances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (amongst others) to features in Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Maxim Magazine, Blender, Spin, USA Today and more, his musical career has been nothing short of phenomenal. 

At 16 years old, he signed his first record deal and burst onto the national scene with the release of his 1995 debut album Ledbetter Heights, which produced the radio hits "Deja Voodoo," "Born with a Broken Heart" and "Shame, Shame, Shame." His relentless touring and success on rock radio helped to drive the album to Platinum sales status. His 1998 sophomore effort Trouble Is… also went Platinum, yielding such radio hits as "Blue on Black," "True Lies" and "Somehow, Somewhere, Someway." 1999's Live On spawned the radio hits "In 2 Deep", "Shotgun Blues" and "Last Goodbye."

2004's The Place You're In was a blistering rock record and was followed up by 2007's ambitious 10 Days Out: Blues from the Backroads, for which Shepherd and his band traveled throughout the American South to record with such vintage blues greats as B.B. King, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, Hubert Sumlin, Pinetop Perkins and David "Honeyboy" Edwards on their home turf. 2010 saw the release of Shepherd's long-awaited first live album, Live! In Chicago, recorded at Chicago's House of Blues during the all-star Legends tour and featuring guest appearances by such blues legends as Hubert Sumlin and Willie "Big Eyes" Smith. The live disc debuted at #1 on Billboard's Blues chart, as did 2011's How I Go. In 2013, Shepherd further expanded his musical horizons by teaming with veteran rockers Stephen Stills and Barry Goldberg to form THE RIDES, whose first album Can't Get Enough helped to expand Shepherd's audience as well as his musical resume. 2014 saw the release of Goin’ Home, Shepherd’s sixth # 1 debut on the Billboard Blues charts. Goin’ Home features several talented friends who shared Shepherd's enthusiasm for the project's back-to-basics ethos. Those guests include fellow guitar icons Joe Walsh, Warren Haynes, Keb' Mo' and Robert Randolph, longtime friend Ringo Starr, Fabulous Thunderbirds frontman Kim Wilson, the Rebirth Brass Band and co-producer Blade's father, Pastor Brady Blade Sr., who lends a bracing dose of preaching to Shepherd's version of Bo Diddley's’ "You Can't Judge a Book by the Cover." In the months since its release, Shepherd and his band have toured the world extensively blazing a fresh trail for the historical American art form in the 21st Century.

The Band

Noah Hunt

A native of Cincinnati Ohio, Noah has a deep past as a musician, songwriter and vocalist. Noah's musical journey began at the age of four when he started taking piano lessons and sang in church choir. While in college he formed a very popular Cincinnati based band Uncle Six and recorded four albums. It was in 1998 that Noah was tapped to be the lead singer for the KWSBand where his signature vocals have been an integral part of the band's success for the past sixteen years. 

Scott Nelson

A Minnesota native transplanted to Austin, TX, Scott Nelson has worked with a who’s who in the blues and blues/rock genres. From Kenny Wayne Shepherd to Gary Clark, Jr., from Pinetop Perkons to Hubert Sumlin, Scott has toured, gigged and recorded with the elite in the blues. During his four years touring and recording with Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Scott played bass on Kenny’s Live! In Chicago and How I Go records. He also recorded on both Gary Clark, Jr.’s self titled EP and his Warner Bros, release, Blak and Blu. Additionally, Scott played on Is It News by Doyle Bramhall Sr. as well as David Grissom’s How It Feels To Fly and 10,000 Feet. He has toured with Gary Clark Jr., Doyle Bramhall Sr., Doyle Bramhall II, Lou Ann Barton, Jimmie Vaughan, Pinetop Perkins, Hubert Sumlin and Eric Johnson among others. Kenny Wayne welcomed him back to the band this year for a year long worldwide tour.

Chris Layton

Originally from Corpus Christi, TX, Chris moved to Austin Texas in 1975, and three years later joined the newly formed Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble. Following the tragic death of Stevie, Chris and bassist Tommy Shannon joined Charlie Sexton and Doyle Bramhall II and formed the Arc Angels. Several years later Chris and Tommy formed another Austin based band Storyville. Arguably the best shuffle drummer in the business, Chris "Whipper" Layton has been a part of the KWS family since he joined Kenny in the studio to record Ledbetter Heights. Since then Chris has played on Trouble Is, Live On, the 10 Days Out: Blues from the Backroads documentary, Live In Chicago and now How I Go. Chris began touring with the KWSBand in 2006.

Riley Osbourn

Respected by his peers, his fans and music critics around the globe, Texas native Riley Osbourn has been an anchor keyboard sideman, both long term and short term, for what some would consider to be Texas music royalty, including BW Stevenson, Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Robert Earl Keen, Big Doyle Bramhall and Lyle Lovett, and has performed around the world with bluesman Kenny Wayne Shepherd. A first call studio musician, he has recorded hundreds of tracks and garnered Grammy nominations for contributions to Willie Nelson and Kenny Wayne Shepherd recordings, and numerous awards from the US and Canadian Blues Foundations, both as a performer and producer. A fixture in the Austin music scene, Riley has been a member of the Antone’s House Band with Derek O’Brien for nearly three decades, backing up uncountable blues legends including Bonnie Raitt, James Cotton, Hubert Sumlin, Ruth Brown, etc., and has been onstage for nearly a dozen Austin City Limits tapings.
