Robert Cray, who has five Grammys and is a member of the Blues Hall of Fame, is savoring his fourth decade as a music performer.
A year ago, he presented “4 Nights of 40 Years Live,” an album presenting music from four different shows in December 2014.
Cray states he did not decide to write the blues – whatever happens, comes out.
“It might be R&B or soul music,” he points out. “It is all music basically the same and it is all a part of my life.”
Within the last 40 years, the Blues Hall of Famer has launched almost 20 records, such as the Double Platinum Strong Persuader, Otis Redding’s “Nobody’s Fault But Mine,” together with some of Cray’s most encouraged originals, like the popular “Fine Yesterday.”
In the next months, the blues singer and his band represented by bassist Richard Cousins, drummer Les Falconer and keyboardist Dover Weinberg will hit the studio to make more music for their fans.
In the meantime, in June, Robert Cray will perform a tribute to B.B. King at the famous Playboy Jazz Festival in L.A.
After over four decades, no one knows how long Cray will keep on.
“Having the opportunity to still be on stage and to still make records and travel, meet new fans, play for old fans – I couldn’t ask for anything more, especially since this is what I love to do,” he states. “And people are still booking us.”
