93. KINGFISH by Christone Ingram
Twenty-one year old blues guitar phenom Christone “Kingfish” Ingram released his debut record in 2019. Considered a child prodigy from a very young age, he was noticed and nurtured by several big names in blues music, culminating in this album release and subsequent tours. The maturity in his playing and singing lies in stark contrast to his young age. For a taste of the electric blues, check out ‘Fresh Out’ (his collaboration with Buddy Guy) and ‘Love Ain’t My Favorite Word.’ And, ‘Hard Times’ is a great slow blues acoustic collaboration with Keb’ Mo’. ‘That’s Fine By Me’ closes out the record in fine form, letting each instrument take center stage on this slow burn track.
