The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band’s new album, How I Go, is set for release August 2. It follows the release of the Grammy nominated Live! In Chicago. Recorded in Studio D and produced by Kenny Wayne Shepherd and longtime collaborator /producer Jerry Harrison (Trouble Is, Live On,10 Days Out, Blues From The Backroads, Live! In Chicago), How I Go signals the band’s return to the studio. With the help of co-writers Mark Selby and Tia Sellers (“Blue on Black”), as well as Zac Maloy and Danny Tate, the new album offers a bounty of new material as well as covers from Albert King, Bessie Smith and The Beatles.
Kenny and his band, which includes Noah Hunt, Chris Layton, and Riley Osbourn, along with special guest Tommy Shannon, have delivered a refreshing and inspiring take on guitar-driven rock and roll. How I Go offers a blues infused collection of music and more. “We poured our hearts and souls into the recording of How I Go,” Shepherd said. “My goal was to give longtime fans exactly what they want to hear on one of my records, while providing new fans an opportunity to experience my brand of blues based rock. I’m certain music lovers will clearly hear our musical roots while experiencing the growth and emotion that this record represents.” The band is planning a U.S. tour to begin in July.
