Kevin Roosevelt Moore (born October 3, 1951), known as Keb’ Mo’, is a three-time American Grammy Award-winning blues musician. He is a singer, guitarist, and songwriter, currently living in Nashville, Tennessee.
He has been described as “a living link to the seminal Delta blues that travelled up the Mississippi River and across the expanse of America”. His post-modern blues style is influenced by many eras and genres, including folk, rock, jazz and pop. The moniker “Keb Mo” was coined by his original drummer, Quentin Dennard, and picked up by his record label as a “street talk” abbreviation of his given name.
From early on, his parents (from Louisiana and Texas) instilled him with a great appreciation for the blues and gospel music. By adolescence, he was already an accomplished guitarist.
