Kenny "Blues Boss" Wayne

Wayne was born in Spokane, Washington, and grew up in New Orleans, San Francisco and Los Angeles. His home base is now Vancouver, but Kenny "Blues Boss" Wayne has been a traveling musician almost all of his life.

By his early teen years, Wayne was an accomplished keyboardist, working dozens of gigs during the early '60s - including a 1962 appearance at the Alpha Bowling Club with the great Jimmy Reed, the biggest blues hit-record king of all time.

By the late 1960s, Kenny Wayne was in tight with the burgeoning Los Angeles soul/R&B scene. He played with Delaney & Bonnie Bramlett when they were based in Sherman Oaks, California, and quickly became first-call keyboardist for live club and concert dates around L.A. Work with Billy Preston, Sly Stone and the Doobie Brothers soon followed.

Rediscovering his own blues roots sent his career into overdrive, thanks to his fresh approach to old music, the drive and roaring good-time attitude of his live performances, and his smartly original songs. As one writer put it: "When a piano player's got the three most important things - the playing, the voice, and the look - he becomes the whole package. An artist you just have to see and hear."

Deeply influenced by Fats Domino and Johnnie Johnson, Kenny Wayne's other heroes include keyboard rockers whose names are beginning to fade into history, men such as Amos Milburn and Bill Doggett, both long overdue for rediscovery by the new generation of blues fans.

Three releases for the independent Canadian label Electro-Fi were all nominated for Juno Awards. His 2006 release Let it Loose, was a Juno winner. Now with a brand new album, An Old Rock On A Roll (Stony Plain 2011), he's on the road again putting down some of the most compelling blues piano you will hear anywhere.
