Steve Winwood has been around a long time – from The Spencer Davis Group to Traffic to Blind Faith – with Eric Clapton (reunited here) to massive solo success too. To me, he’s got one of those recognisable voices, a voice that I like. Here’s a link to a streaming track from his new “Nine Lives” album – “Dirty City” – this is a song I could certainly see appearing in the setlist of my next band – I like it a lot. If you go to the official website, there’s a video to the track too.
Winwood and Clapton have played a few gigs together this month – there’s a write up at Rolling Stone here.
