Warren Haynes, Joe Walsh, Ringo Starr and More Guest on New Kenny Wayne Shepherd Album
Kenny Wayne Shepherd will release his Concord Records debut, Goin’ Home, on May 20. The album—which was recorded in 11 days in Shepherd’s hometown of Shreveport, Louisiana—will feature fellow guitar icons Joe Walsh, Warren Haynes, Keb’ Mo’ and Robert Randolph, as well as Ringo Starr, Fabulous Thunderbird Kim Wilson, The Rebirth Brass Band, and one of Shepherd’s musical mentors, Pastor Brady Blade Sr.
Shepherd’s band will feature singer Noah Hunt, ex-Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble drummer Chris Layton, former Firm bassist Tony Franklin and keyboardist Riley Osbourn, all of whom recorded the album on two-inch tape with minimal studio overdubs in order to secure a more back-to-basics sound. The tracks are wholly made up new takes on vintage classics by B.B. King, Albert King, Freddie King, Muddy Waters and more.
