For more than five decades, Steve Winwood has remained a primary figure in rock ‘n’ roll, a respected innovator who has helped to create some of the genre’s most celebrated achievements. Bursting into prominence in 1963 with the Spencer Davis Group, Winwood also co-founded Traffic, whose albums such as Mr. Fantasy and John Barleycorn Must Die confirmed their position as one of the most important British groups of the 1960s and 1970s. In 1967, Winwood teamed up with Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker to form Blind Faith, which many critics dubbed rock’s first super group. Winwood has also enjoyed success with landmark solo albums, including the Grammy® Award-winning Back In The High Life and Roll With It. His solo career has yielded a rich catalog of popular songs, including “When You See a Chance,” “Valerie” and “Higher Love.” His most recent solo album, About Time, has continued that success, earning Winwood one of his highest Billboard chart entries. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004 and listed among Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Singers of All Time,” Winwood remains one of the most influential artists in popular music.
