The Robert Cray Band

The Robert Cray Band

Blues guitarist and vocalist Robert Cray has been credited with helping to create the blues "renaissance" of the 1980s. He began his music career in 1979 and has won five Grammy awards. A lucky meeting with actor John Belushi resulted in Cray's getting a part in the film Animal House (1978) as a member of the band Otis Day and the Knights. In 1985 he released his breakthrough album, "Showdown!", which he recorded with Albert Collins and Johnny Copeland. It garnered him a Grammy and sold a quarter-million copies. The next year he went over to Mercury Records, where he released what many believe to be his best album, "Strong Persuader", which got him his second Grammy. He appeared in the rock documentary Chuck Berry Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll (1987) and in 1989 released his album "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark", another million-seller that resulted in his third Grammy. His follow-up album, "Midnight Stroll", saw him move away from the blues somewhat and get more into soul and R&B, but it didn't alienate his blues fans.
