Steve Winwood: New Label, New Tour, New CD

Steve Winwood
marks his 40th anniversary in the music industry with the launch of his new record label Wincraft Music, a tour of the United States, including some opening dates with The Dead, and a new CD, “About Time.” The album will be released June 17 on Wincraft Music and marks a new direction for the Grammy-award winning, multi-platinum selling artist. Steve Winwood has teamed with Colorado based SCI Fidelity Records, who are administering Wincraft Music, and their partner management firm, Madison House Inc.

Known for his work with Spencer Davis Group, Traffic, Blind Faith and as a solo artist, Winwood set out to craft a fresh, contemporary album that would
combine rock ‘n’ roll and world music. Winwood centers the new album’s
sound around the Hammond B-3 organ. Working closely with guitarist Jose Neto (Airto Moreira and Flora Purim) and drummer Walfredo Reyes Jr. (Santana, Traffic), “About Time” marks the first time in 27 years that Winwood
recorded live without the use of click tracks or loops. His concerts will include music from “About Time” as well as a broad selection of songs from his extensive repertoire.
