In a historical sense, if any artist can be said to rule Billboard's Top
Blues Albums chart, it is L.A.-bred singer/songwriter Keb' Mo'
black English for Kevin Moore. In fact, Keb' Mo' has never been absent
from the chart during the course of its existence. His denominative 1994 debut peaked on
Top Blues Albums the week it was initiated in September 1995; it enjoyed a 72-week stay,
topping off at No. 4. For 28 weeks, both his debut album and his album "Just
Like You" were on the chart simultaneously.
Keb' Mo' has won his share of critical accolades.
"Just Like You" won a 1997 Grammy Award as best contemporary
blues album, and the musician was named acoustic blues artist of the year at the 1997 W.C.
Handy Awards. Those who have been intimately involved with the development of the
bluesman's career ascribe his success to the pop-conscious way in which he presents his
Keb' came to the genre late. His early professional resume included work
in rock/R&B fiddler Papa John Creach's band, a 1980 R&B-inflected solo album for
Casablanca, and a stint with the vocal group The Rose Brothers. However, his work as a

don't even know what it is. There's a lot of blues on it, but there's a lot of stuff
that's not blues...I just go right from the hip, I go from the moment, and I know what the
record is when I'm done with it. I'll probably catch a little heat. You gotta catch a
little heat. If you don't catch a little heat, you didn't really try to do
Keb's fans have packed his live performances all over North America
and Europe including major US tours with
Celine Dion (Spring '97) and
Bonnie Raitt (Spring '98), and countless headlining gigs.
Keb' Mo' has torn the house down with his sets at the New
Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, the Chicago Blues Festival, the
Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, and Holland's North Sea Jazz
Festival. His television performances include "The Late Show With
David Letterman," "The
