For more than four decades, Steve Winwood has remained a primary figure in rock ‘n’ roll, a respected innovator who has helped to create some of the genre’s most celebrated achievements.

Winwood burst into prominence in 1963 with the Spencer Davis Group and since that time his celebrated skills as a composer, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist have developed an impressive catalog of popular music.

That extraordinary portfolio of music began at the age of fifteen as the driving force of the Spencer Davis Group. The group enjoyed a string of chart success by way of such enduring classics as “Keep On Running” “Gimme Some Lovin'” and “I’m A Man”. The international success of these singles bolstered Winwood’s confidence and strengthened his resolve to seek out new rhythmic possibilities.

In 1967, Winwood left the Spencer Davis Group and co-founded Traffic. Beloved for their eclectic style and superbly crafted songs, Traffic routinely defied convention to celebrate a host of perse sounds and influences. Landmark albums such as Mr. Fantasy and John Barleycorn Must Die confirmed their position as one of the most important British groups of the 1960’s and 1970’s.

Eager to try his hand with other creative partnerships, Winwood left Traffic in 1969 to join a new group formed by Cream guitarist Eric Clapton and drummer Ginger Baker. The pairing of Winwood with Cream’s Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and later, former Family bassist Rick Grech, created what many critics dubbed rock first supergroup. The international popularity of Blind Faith, the group’s sole album, confirmed their special chemistry. Blind Faith staples such as “Can’t Find My Way Home” continue to rank among Winwood’s finest achievements.

In 1970, Winwood reformed Traffic and guided a highly successful run founded on such popular albums as Low Heeled Spark Of High Heeled Boys and Shoot Out At The Fantasy Factory. By 1975, Traffic splintered as the allure of solo projects and new creative partnerships proved too tempting to resist.

1977’s solo debut Steve Winwood signaled a bold new artistic direction. Such a shift should hardly come as a surprise for those who have followed Winwood’s distinguished career. Beginning with Traffic and extending through such landmark solo albums as the Grammy Award winning Back In The High Life and Roll With It, Winwood has nurtured a restless creative spirit, mining rich musical traditions such as Delta blues, English Folk, R&B, and West African calypso and merging these perse influences within his own unmistakable sound.

Winwood’s solo career has yielded a rich catalog of popular songs including “Back In The High Life,” “When You See A Chance,” “Valerie,” and “Higher Love”. His most recent solo album, About Time, has continued that success, earning Winwood one of his highest Billboard chart entries.

    “You just roll with it, baby yeah.
    Just roll with it”

    With so many crazy things going on in the world, and in your own life, just roll with it is a good mantra.

    What a powerful singer. “I’m A Man” is one of the coolest cuts! Been a fan for a long time!
    I’d love a chance to see him on stage! Thanks!

    ICYMT: Sherlock says, “It’s not a 2-pipe problem, Watson”. We’d both like to sup on MaryHill wines & mellow with Winwood’s rockin’ vibes!

    They chance to see a Rock Legend would be the ultimate experience for me. I have loved his music most of my life and would give anything to be there.

    I would love to witness the Winwood experience. Such a great musician. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Isn’t Gimme Some Lovin a Spinal Tap song??? Oh, wait, that was Gimme Some Money… Anyway, yeah, we’d love to be Back In The High Life again!

    I loved singing Mr. Winwood’s songs, especially “Higher Love” with my bands. My favorite part of the song was the bridge….powerful and sexy music. I am too old now to be the Babe in The Band, but I sure had some good times with his music.

    I remember driving to work every morning in the late 80’s and playing Steve Winwood on the way. What a great way to commute! The article brought back great memories; his songs playing in my head as I read it. Offering free tickets! How cool. How fun would it be to belt out “Bring me a Higher Love” a couple of times during the 2 hour drive to Maryhill Winery with free tickets for the concert? Oh yeah!

  17. Sylvia Bengisoy August 24, 2017 at 11:32 pm #

    He has a great history. Would love to see him live!

  18. Tyler H August 25, 2017 at 11:23 am #

    Lil’ Stevie Winwood has been bringing me a Higher Love while I sit in Traffic for a long time. He’s a must-see show for me alongside other music legends. Dear Mr. Fantasy, please help me win tickets.

    If I had just a minute to breathe, and they granted me one final wish, I wouldn’t ask for songs like another chance, or something similar as this. Don’t worry too much it will happen to me, I’ll win these tickets to see Steve and the Lowe speak of high heeled boys!

    From the first time I heard Steve Winwood in the Spencer Davis Group, I’ve been a huge fan of his music until the present time. He’s an immensely talented musician.

    I’ve never been to the Maryhill Winery and would really love the chance to go and experience the venue. The photos of the amphitheater and the winery look really great!

  22. Tom August 30, 2017 at 2:52 pm #

    I’ve never been to the winery or a concert there… It would be nice.

  23. Anna M August 31, 2017 at 9:39 pm #

    No one told me Steve was coming to WA! Seriously though, I’ve been trying to watch out for this guy’s shows!

    Would love to hear Valerie and Higher Love up close. And I think I can convince my 80s-fan brother to be my concert buddy! He IS the one who took me to Journey :)

    I’m a visitor wanna see more about Seattle

    Steve Winwood songs bring back my high school days driving around in my candy apple red Volkswagen Karmann-Ghia . It was the best of times! If for just a moment in our hectic world today, I could escape and relive my fondess memories, I would consider myself complete.

    I’ll be meeting up with a friend from second grade on Saturday, I would love to surprise her with tickets! 😊
