The Robert Cray Band

Robert Cray has been bridging the lines between Blues, Soul, and R&B for the past four decades, with five Grammy wins and over 20 acclaimed albums. For his latest project, Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm, the Blues Hall of Famer travelled to Memphis with his friend - renowned Grammy Award winning producer Steve Jordan - to make a classic Soul album with Hi Rhythm, the band that helped create that sound.

Growing up in the Northwest, Robert Cray listened to the Gospel of the Five Blind Boys of Mississippi, Bobby Bland's Soul, Jimi Hendrix's Rock guitar, and The Beatles' Pop sounds. He would go on to bring all of these influences into play throughout his career. RObert Cray has created a sound that rises from American roots and arrives today both fresh and familiar.
