Kenny Wayne Shepherd is another hard-hitting blues axe man who took the world by storm at a young age. After meeting Stevie Ray Vaughan and becoming “completely mesmerized” by his talent, Sheppard was hooked and has never looked back. That was at age 7. He is 100% self-taught, learning by ear while listening to cassette tapes of all the blues greats. By 13, he was gigging professionally and has been unstoppable ever since. In fact, he holds the record for the longest-running album on the Billboard Blues Charts.
He continues to perform and record and just released his newest studio album Lay It On Down in August 2017.
