With a raw, biting, overdriven tone, flawless technique, and relentless energy, Walter Trout is among the world's most formidable blues guitarists. His high-profile stints with Canned Heat and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers in the 1980s resulted from a decade of backing blues and R&B performers including Joe Tex, Percy Mayfield, Big Mama Thornton, Lowell Fulsom, and John Lee Hooker. After leaving Mayall's employ in 1989, Trout led his own bands and started recording as a bandleader. He issued acclaimed early albums for European labels including Telling Stories in 1991 and Transition in 1992. Issued in the U.S., 1994's Tellin' Stories for RCA/Silvertone imprint drew critical notice, while his fortunes in Europe were far greater. 2000’s Live Trout, was his first charting album Stateside. By the time he issued 2009's Unspoiled by Progress, his offerings regularly notched spots in the Blues Albums Top Ten. After the 2013 U.S. issue of Luther's Blues: A Tribute to Luther Allison peaked at four, Trout was sidelined with cirrhosis and Hepatitis C; he required an organ transplant. During recuperation he penned Rescued from Reality: The Life and Times of Walter Trout with journalist Henry Yates. He returned with 2015’s number two-charting Battle Scars and resumed touring -- his first gig was a blues festival at the Royal Albert Hall. 2017’s We’re All in This Together marked his first number one outing, a run he continued with Survivor Blues two years later.
