Kenny Wayne Shepherd is an American blues guitarist, singer, and songwriter.
He has released several studio albums and experienced a rare level of
commercial success both as a blues artist and a young musician. In 1997,
Guitar World ranked Shepherd #3 after B.B. King and Eric Clapton on their
list of popular blues artists.
Shepherd attended Caddo Magnet High School in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Self-taught, he began playing at age seven, learning Muddy Waters licks from
his father's record collection. At the age of thirteen, Shepherd was invited
onstage by the New Orleans bluesman Bryan Lee. After proving his abilities,

was shot at Shepherd's first performance at the Red River Revel Arts
Festival in Shreveport. It was this video performance that impressed Giant
Records chief Irving Azoff enough to sign Shepherd to a multiple album
