Winwood18_web-592x432 (1)When it comes to rock and roll, few names are more recognizable than Steve Winwood. He has been making popular music for over four decades with three bands, a solo career, and multiple partnerships. He is still going strong today, having earned multiple accolades.

At a young age, Winwood gained notoriety with the Spencer Davis Group in 1963. That band performed hits like “Gimme Some Lovin’” and “I’m a Man.” In 1967, Winwood co-founded Traffic, creating landmark albums Mr. Fantasy and John Barleycom Must Die.

Leaving Traffic for a brief stint, in 1969, Winwood joined the first rock supergroup, Blind Faith. Led by Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker, the group cranked out hits like “Cant’t Find My Way Home.” After a single album, Winwood reformed Traffic before embarking on a successful solo career. He continues to partner with greats like Eric Clapton.
