Steve Winwood has been creating his own form of R&B genres for over 50 years, and is an international star. His music includes blues, folk, rock, funk, pop and most recently Latin rhythms. His immediately recognizable blue-eyed soulful voice makes him one of the greatest singers of our time. Winwood has been the bandleader of iconic groups including The Spencer Davis Group, Traffic, Blind Faith and an extensive solo career. Winwood is also an extremely talented Hammond B-3 organist, synthesizer keyboardist, and guitarist. His work as a session player helped him become a visionary engineer and producer, sometimes creating entire albums by himself. Author Chuck Sullivan explores Winwood’s journey through first hand interviews with notable musicians, extensive research, and uses his personal experiences as a musician and producer to describe the remarkable career of this musical genius.
