Kenny Wayne Shepherd's new album The Traveler is out now - Watch the new video for "Woman Like You" << ALL NEWS 

Guitar slinger Kenny Wayne Shepherd's new album 'The Traveler' is out today on Vinyl, CD and all digital platforms. 

Gone is the young Louisiana gunslinger who erupted onto the early-'90s scene with his burn-it-down guitar solos and gut-punch songcraft. The 41-year-old he's become is even more magnetic, still pushing his Fender Strat where others fear to fret. As a grown man and a father, there are different thoughts and feelings that have come into focus.
 
"The album title comes from the song Tailwind," he explains. "We're all travelling together through this thing called life. These are testing times for us as a society, and it seems to me that it's been a bit crazy in the world lately, with so much division. Without making any kind of political point, it's like, 'Let's get through this together, appreciate one another and not always be trying to fight'."
 
World-class guitar playing has always been his calling card, but in his forties, Shepherd knows when to blaze and when to breathe. "There's some restraint on 'The Traveler'," he considers. "As I've gotten older, I've started to lean towards the approach of less is more. I play for the song now."
