Christone “Kingfish” Ingram
Christone “Kingfish” Ingram. Since the release of Kingfish, his Grammy nominated 2019 debut, guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter. He’s been tearing up the blues scene ever since as well as being a defining blues voice of his generation.
Rolling Stone declares “Kingfish is one of the most exciting young guitarist in years with a sound that encompasses B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix, and Prince.” We totally agree!
This blues prodigy Christone “Kingfish” Ingram is striking it out of the ballpark once again with his latest single “662!” While there is no video yet, you can at least get an idea of what to expect. With his upcoming album set for release in July 2021.
Also, “662” is the title of his upcoming album, but it’s also a reference to Ingram’s hometown telephone area code. According to the 22-year-old guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter, “662 is an ode to my roots, a nod to the area where I was born and raised.
Check out the audio of 662 below:
Furthermore, he goes on to say that this track that encompasses how a small corner of the earth influenced my view of life and music. This song also points to the growth I have had since my debut album. As much as I have been fortunate to get ‘Outside Of This Town’ (the title of his breakout single from his 2019 Grammy-nominated debut album, Kingfish), I do want people to know that the ‘662’ will always be a major part of who I am.”
We’re all going to see this album burn up the Blues charts when it’s released! While you’re waiting for July, check out Kingfish with Joe Bonamassa, Joanna Connor, and many others performing “Going Down” by Freddie King. We suggest you play it loud! Enjoy!
