Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne

The Legendary Blues and Boogie Woogie piano master Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne is hailed by LIVING BLUES magazine as “an artist bringing the piano back to the front ranks of contemporary Blues“. This 2006 Juno Award winner and a multi Maple Blues Award winner is at the forefront of modern day blues piano practitioners.

Rediscovering his own blues roots long ago sent his career into overdrive, thanks to his fresh approach to old music, the drive and roaring good-time attitude of his live performances, and his smartly original self-penned songs.

Wayne was already a child prodigy when, at eight, he moved with his family to San Francisco, and then to Los Angeles. Encouraged by his preacher father, the Reverend Matthew Spruell, to play gospel music, the youngster was also secretly introduced to the radically more exciting boogie-woogie by an uncle.
