Boz Scaggs Adds 2018 Dates; New Album: Listen

Share This:

Beloved blue-eyed soul singer, songwriter and guitarist Boz Scaggs has announced a new album and extensive 2018 tour. Out of the Blues, coming July 27 via Concord Records, was produced by Scaggs and includes vintage classics and originals. (Pre-order the CD here.) Listen to the first release, “Rock and Stick,” below.

Scaggs recently completed a series of spring concert dates. He resumes touring on June 8. (See below.)

After gaining fame in the 1960s as a guitarist and one-time lead singer with the Steve Miller Band, Scaggs earned six solo Top 20 hit singles from 1976 – 1980, including “Lowdown” and “Lido Shuffle” from the critically acclaimed Silk Degrees. That album reached number two in the U.S. and #1 in many other countries, leading to a sold-out world tour. Although he spent much of the ’80s in retirement, operating San Francisco nightclub Slim’s, he made his comeback in 1988 with the record Other Roads. Since 2010, Scaggs has occasionally been performing with supergroup The Dukes of September alongside Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen and Michael McDonald.

Out of the Blues follows 2015’s A Fool to Care and 2013’s Memphis. The new album features performances by guitarists Doyle Bramhall II, Ray Parker Jr. and Charlie Sexton, bassist Willie Weeks, drummer Jim Keltner and keyboardist Jim Cox, as well as longtime friend Jack Walroth on guitar, harmonica and percussion.

    Saw him last night in Minneapolis. His voice was phoenomenal. And he went on and on totally engage with the audience. A brilliant performance. Can’t wait for the new album. He is so underrated.
