Keb’ Mo’ Rides BLUESAmericana Success Into North American Summer Tour, Launching June 18


(Nashville, Tenn. – June 8, 2015) – It’s been a diverse and award-winning year for singer, songwriter, guitarist and modern day Blues and Americana artist Keb’ Mo’. Though he is a multiple GRAMMY award-winning artist, his latest acclaimed album, BLUESAmericana, on Kind of Blue Music, accomplished a career first; three GRAMMY nominations and the honor of being awarded the Blues Music Association’s Best Contemporary Blues Album of 2015. The honor marked his 11th Blues Music Award, however, it was his first in 13 years.

On the heels of his success, Keb’ and his three-piece band will take their routinely sold out show to fans across North America for a 2015 Summer Tour, which will launch on June 18 and continue well into the fall.

Katherine Satarin of LiveMusicDaily.com spoke of it in these terms after she attended a show recently, “If Keb’ Mo’ is coming anywhere near you on his North American summer tour, I nearly order you to attend.”

When asked, Keb’ said, “I’m having more fun on the road maybe more than ever before. The talent of my team and band and the gratitude I have for people that continue to come out to see me, sometimes for the 10th or 15th time . . . it’s overwhelming."
