Robert Cray Artist Snapshot:

Grammy Award-winning guitar great Robert Cray fuses blues and Memphis-style R&B in his music, often evoking the funky soul sounds of O.V. Wright in the process. Cray is justly praised for his understated approach; the subtlety of his singing and playing indeed set him apart from much of the modern blues scene, and the songs he and partner Dennis Walker write bear the mark of true storytelling. Bursting onto the music scene in 1983 with BAD INFLUENCE, Cray continues to create stellar blues into the 21st century.

Product Notes

Stinging urban blues by way of Texas and Memphis distinguish Robert Cray's major-label debut, which followed three strong independent releases. Here he fleshes out his sound with bursts of brassy Southern soul courtesy of the Memphis Horns, but keeps his pungent, steely guitar solos out front in an engaging dialogue with his plaintive vocals. Released in 1986, Strong Persuader signaled that Cray, as a writer--like his contemporary Stevie Ray Vaughan--had something to say about his interior life beyond the usual bluesman's laments, an approach that pays homage to the music's rich traditions while suggesting new areas of inquiry. --David McGee
