Life is Beautiful
It all took off in 1994 with the self-titled release under Kevin Roosevelt Moore’s newly coined Keb’ Mo’ moniker, and over the past two decades, Keb’ has cultivated a reputation as a modern master of American roots music through the understated excellence of his live and studio performances.
Artists who have recorded his songs include B.B. King, Buddy Guy, the Dixie Chicks, Joe Cocker, Robert Palmer, Tom Jones, Melissa Manchester, Solomon Burke and the Zac Brown Band to name a few. The list of artist collaborations comprises a who’s who in the music industry and includes Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Jackson Browne, Natalie Cole, Lyle Lovett, India.Arie, James Cotton, Bobby Rush, Timothy B. Schmit, Marcus Miller and many more.
His guitar playing has garnered him two invites to Eric Clapton’s acclaimed Crossroads Festival and has inspired new models from leading instrument makers. He has been featured in TV and film, sung for President Barack Obama, and become more or less a permanent fixture of the Grammy awards show. On top of all this, Keb’ Mo’ is a celebrity mentor with the Kennedy Center’s Turnaround Arts program and has been a longtime supporter of the Playing For Change Foundation, a nonprofit organization that creates positive change through music education.
He’s a living legend who has never once rested on his considerable laurels, and he’s back with the blues show of the year in southeastern Michigan!
