Keb Mo Details
Keb Mo Bio and Ticket InformationKevin Moore, better known as Keb’ Mo’ is an award-winning American blues musician. He is a singer, songwriter and guitarist, as well as an actor. Mo’ is well known for his unique style of blues music and has many years of experience in the entertainment industry.
Moore was born on October 31st, 1951 in Los Angeles, California. Moore’s parents, who were originally from the south, raised him to be influenced by blues and gospel music at a very young age. He grew up listening to all types of soul, blues and jazz music, and quickly learned to love it. By the time he was an adolescent, he had already learned to become an experienced guitarist. Moore began his musical career at a young age, playing the steel drums and upright bass in a calypso band. He moved on to play in different blues bands in the 1970’s and 1980’s. As he became more immersed in blues music, he began recording in the early 1970’s with violinist Papa John Creach.
Moore and Creach became very close, and Moore soon appeared on four of Creach's albums; Filthy!, Playing My Fiddle for You, I'm the Fiddle Man and Rock Father. At just 20 years old, he received his first gold record for co-writing "Git Fiddler" with Creach on Jefferson Starship's album Red Octopus. Red Octopus hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 1975. In his early career, Moore also worked as a songwriter and arranging demos for A&M Records.
In 1980, Moore released his debut, Rainmaker, through Chocolate City Records, a subsidiary of Casablanca Records and Filmworks.
After his long gig in the Whodunit Band, headed by Bobby "Blue" Bland producer Monk Higgins, Moore released his self-titled debut album under his new professional name, Keb’ Mo.’ The album featured two Robert Johnson covers, by whom Moore says his music has been highly influenced. The album was released on Okeh Records, a blues and jazz division of Sony Music. Following the release of the album, Keb’ became the runner-up for Best New Blues Artist at The Long Beach Blues Festival.
In 1996, he released Just Like You, his second album. The album featured appearances from mega-stars Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt. The album won him his first Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album.
In 1997, Mo' portrayed the character Isaac, the Angel of Music, in the episode "Inherit the Wind" in the television series Touched by an Angel. He performed "Hand It Over" from his 1996 album, Just Like You, in the episode.
On June 10, 1997, Mo’ joined musicians Laval Belle, Reggie McBride, and Joellen Friedkin on the popular television program Sessions at West 54th. Grammy-winning blues pianist Dr. John also made a guest appearance. They performed 14 songs on the set, which aired on television and was later released on DVD in 2000. In 1998, Mo’ was also featured in the multi artist project "Begegnungen (Encounter)" by German rockstar Peter Maffay. They performed together in 30 concerts later that year, which was released as a live album, Begenungen Live, in 1999.
Mo’ released his next album, Slow Down, in 1998. The album featured twelve songs, one being a tribute to Muddy Waters. The album also featured a re-recorded version of “Rainmaker,” which had been originally released on his first album. Slow Down won Keb Mo his second Grammy award for Best Contemporary Blues Album. That year he also portrayed musician Robert Johnson in the documentary film, Can’t You Hear the Wind Howl?
In 2000, he released his fourth album, The Door. That year he also released a children’s album, Big Wide Grin. The album featured songs Mo’ wrote himself as well as covers of his favorite childhood song. The album includes a re-imagined cover of "America the Beautiful," which he performed in 2006 on the series finale of the TV show, The West Wing. In 2001, he appeared on Sesame Street to perform a song from the album titled “Everybody Be Yo’self” along with Kermit the Frog, Grover, Elmo, and other muppets. Also in 2001, he appeared again on Touched By An Angel as J. D. Winslow in the episode "Shallow Water." In the episode, he performed his song "God Trying to Get Your Attention" from his album Slow Down.
In 2003, Mo’ and other musicians collaborated with Martin Scorsese, who put together a series of films entitled The Blues. For the project, Mo’ also released a compilation album that included a handful of recordings from his past albums.
In 2004, Mo’ released two albums, Keep It Simple and Peace...Back By Popular Demand. Keep It Simple won him another Grammy award for Best Contemporary Blues Album in 2005. Peace... Back By Popular Demand featured covers of songs by artists such as Marvin Gaye and Bob Dylan.
His ninth studio album, Suitcase, was released in June 2006. One of the songs from the album, "I See Love," was later used as the theme song to the CBS television comedy series Mike & Molly. Following the release of the album, Mo’ and his band went on tour to promote it. In 2009, he released a live album, Live & Mo’.
In 2011, Mo’ released The Reflection, his first studio album since 2006. Mo’ focused on a new genre for the album, giving it more of a folk-soul sound.
