Next month will mark 25 years since Kenny Wayne Shepherd released his iconic album “Trouble Is.” For this episode of “New & Approved,” Kenny speaks with Matt Pinfield all about his plans to celebrate the record’s anniversary.
Kenny first dives into his childhood and discusses his earliest days of playing guitar. The spark was first ignited when he received his first acoustic guitar around the age of three, but was really transformed when he met Stevie Ray Vaughan and then fell in love with the electric guitar. We also learn about Kenny’s love for early blues and about all the projects he has launched to expose his admiration of blues. This is where all of his inspiration stems from. Kenny also tells Matt about how he met his band’s singer Noah Hunt who has been with him since 1997.
A special anniversary edition of “Trouble Is” will soon be released along with a documentary about the record’s backstory. Kenny Wayne Shepherd will also be continuing the album’s anniversary tour into next summer so there will be plenty of opportunities to catch him.
