Biography

Great Barr, Birmingham, England

Stephen Lawrence (“Steve”) Winwood (born May 12, 1948 in Great Barr, Birmingham, England) is a British singer, songwriter, and musician who, in addition to his solo career, was a member of the bands the The Spencer Davis Group, recording the hit “Gimme Some Lovin’”, Traffic, and Blind Faith. Winwood’s commercial success waned during the mid and late 70’s. He had a major hit with While You See a Chance in 1980. He had a career renaissance beginning in 1986 with the hit album Back In The High Life which produced hits such as Higher Love and The Finer Things.

Winwood released a new album “Nine Lives” on April 29, 2008, and started a tour with Tom Petty and others in May 2008.

    His 80s stuff is slightly too synthetic to my tastes, but his first solo album along with Junction Seven, About Time and Nine Lives are terrific works.

    I like the Spencer Davis Group-Winwood better than the "Higher Love"-Winwood. Too polished, too clean, too artificial! He's got such a beautiful voice, no need for all those enhancements! Higher Love is a catchy song though ^_^

    The album "Back in the Highlife" took the world by storm. Who was this singer with such soulful voice?

    The white, English Ray Charles. Think that's too high a term of praise for him? You won't, after you've heard him sing!
