He was born Kevin Moore, but his fans know him best as Keb' Mo', one of the finest blues and pop performers playing today. Although he draws heavily on traditional country blues styles, he applies his formidable acoustic, electric and slide guitar skills to his contemporary folk, jazz and rock oriented compositions.
This Grammy and W. C. Handy award-winning artist has appeared as both an actor and musician in numerous film and TV projects, including CBS' "The Promised Land." In 1990, he portrayed a Delta bluesman in a play called "Rabbit Foot," and later played Robert Johnson in a docudrama called "Can't You Hear the Wind Howl?" Other television performances include "The Late Show With David Letterman," "The Rosie O'Donnell Show," "Sessions At West 54th," "Conan O'Brien" and "Touched By An Angel." Keb' also hosted the special "Best of the Blues" anniversary edition of "Austin City Limits." His film work includes the soundtracks to "One Fine Day," Kevin Costner's "Tin Cup," and "Down in the Delta," directed by Maya Angelou.
Keb's fans have packed his live performances all over North America and Europe, including major US tours with Celine Dion and Bonnie Raitt and countless headlining gigs. He has performed at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Chicago Blues Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival and Holland's North Sea Jazz Festival. Keb' has released nearly a dozen acclaimed CDs, including his latest, "Suitcase," on Red Ink Records.
