Once a generation, an artist comes along who not only reminds mainstream audiences how deeply satisfying and emotionally moving the best blues music can be, but shakes the genre to its core.
With both eyes on the future and the blues in his blood, 21-year-old guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Christone “Kingfish” Ingram continues to take the music world by storm.
Sprung from the same earth as so many of the Delta blues masters, Kingfish comes bursting out of Clarksdale, Mississippi, just ten miles from the legendary crossroads of Highways 61 and 49. A student of the Delta’s musical history, he is acutely aware of the musicians and the music that emerged from his corner of the world. “I do think I have an old soul, that I’ve been here before,” he says. “I’m moving forward with one foot in the past.”
In May 2019, Kingfish released his debut album, KINGFISH. The album debuted #1 on the Billboard Blues and Heatseeker charts and has remained on the chart for 52 straight weeks. KINGFISH was nominated for a 2019 GRAMMY award for "Best Traditional Blues" album. Kingfish was a five time winner at the 2020 Blues Music Awards where he swept all five categories in which he was nominated – “Album of the Year,” “Contemporary Blues Album of the Year,” “Emerging Artist Album of the Year,” “Contemporary Male Artist of the Year” and “Best Instrumentalist – Guitar.”
