      XPN Welcomes: Keb Mo

      Kevin Roosevelt Moore was born on 3 October 1951 in South Los Angeles, California and had an early appreciation for music, becoming a well-established guitarist by early adolescence. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s he played as backup for various bands, as well as started to record music with violinist Papa John Creach through an R&B group. It was Creach who hired him to play on four of his albums giving Keb’ Mo’ his first gold album.

       

      In 1980 he made his first release with “Rainmaker” with the help of Chocolate City Records, and then was further immersed into blues music by becoming a part of the band, Whodunit. Keb’ Mo’ followed up with “Rainmaker” with a self-titled album in 1994 on Okeh Records. In 1996 he released “Just Like You” which earned him his first Grammy Award. He then became involved in the German rocker Peter Maffay’s music collective project called Begegnungen (Encounter). In 1998 Keb’ Mo’ released his next album entitled “Slow Down” followed shortly in 2000 by “The Door.” He even released a children’s album in 2000 entitled “Big Wide Grin” which featured many of the childhood songs that Mo’ grew up with, followed by a television appearance on the popular children’s television show, “Sesame Street.” The next album he released, “Keep It Simple” in 2004 earned him another Grammy Award, followed by “Suitecase” in 2006. He went on to release his first live album in 2009.

      Doors open at 8pm.
