SANTA MONICA, Calif., Mary 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Grammy Award winning rock legend Boz Scaggs is celebrating one of his best chart debuts with his latest studio album titled MEMPHIS with an extensive tour and a confirmed appearance sitting in with The Roots on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" on May 23rd. The critically acclaimed project entered the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart at #17 and the Billboard Blues Chart at #1, his best chart debut since the phenomenal success of "Silk Degrees." The multi-platinum selling musician just signed with 429 Records which released the album on March 5th. The music is available everywhere including a continuing campaign at North American Starbucks stores and Barnes & Noble (which offers a 2CD exclusive set including a disc of 6 demo versions). The album is also available on 180 gram audiophile quality vinyl. Showcasing both original songs and choice covers, MEMPHIS was produced by Steve Jordan (John Mayer) and was recorded at Willie Mitchell's legendary Royal Studio in Memphis, where the late Mitchell recorded Al Green and other Hi Records artists. Joining Scaggs on MEMPHIS are Willie Weeks (bass), Ray Parker Jr. (guitars), Spooner Oldham (keyboards), the Memphis Horns, Lester Snell (string arrangements) and Steve Jordan (drums). Boz is continuing a national tour in support of "Memphis" and will also be touring internationally which includes a visit to Japan in November. Scaggs continued on a lauded and multi-genre musical journey to the present day. Scaggs also performs alongside Donald Fagan and Michael McDonald in their super group 'The Dukes of September' who will have a PBS "Great Performances from Lincoln Center" concert special airing in December and a DVD release on 429 Records this fall.
William Royce "Boz" Scaggs began a long and storied career in 1965 with the release of his first solo recording Boz. Scaggs quickly developed into an iconic singer songwriter cutting his teeth playing with Steve Miller on several highly successful projects and honing his rock and R&B chops working with the likes of the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section and Duane Allman. Scaggs hit it big in 1976 achieving multi-platinum success with "Silk Degrees" and its follow ups. Scaggs continued on a lauded and multi-genre musical journey to the present day.
