Description

Guitarist Robert Cray and his band started a blues journey in Oregon in 1974 and over 30 years later, has led them to the top of the blues music world. Bandleader Robert Cray is considered to be one of the most expressive vocalists and impressive guitarists and accomplished musicians in contemporary rhythm and blues. He’s won five Grammy awards, been nominated for 11 more and inspired critics to praise his soulful vocal and instrumental artistry. Cray’s recognition as one of blues’ leading men resulted in Fender introducing the Robert Cray Standard Stratocaster® guitar in 2003. Time after time, Robert Cray and his band have laid down track after track of good-time, uptown, low-down blues.

Live from Across the Pond_ (2006) is the Robert Cray Band’s most recent album. Featuring material recorded from seven nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall, this two-disc set features Cray and company in superb form moving from straight-up blues, to soul-infused pop and gutbucket ballads. For longtime fans and newcomers alike, Live from Across the Pond works well as both an encapsulation and introduction to Cray’s unique, eclectic blues sound. The Robert Cray Band continues to record, collaborate and innovate.
