William Royce Boz Scaggs began a long and storied career in 1965 with the release of his first solo recording, "Boz." Scaggs quickly developed into an iconic singer-songwriter, cutting his teeth playing with Steve Miller on several highly successful projects and honing his rock and R & B chops working with the likes of the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section and Duane Allman.
Scaggs hit it big in 1976, achieving multi-platinum success with Silk Degrees and its follow ups. Silk Degrees features hits like the Grammy Award winning "Lowdown" in addition to "Lido Shuffle," "What Can I Say" and the ballad "We're All Alone."
Scaggs then continued on a lauded and multi-genre musical journey with successes in film soundtracks including the song from the motion picture, Urban Cowboy, "Look What You've Done To Me."
In his new album, MEMPHIS, which came out in March 2013 on 429 Records, the Grammy-Award winning rock legend Boz Scaggs showcases both original songs and choice covers including "Rainy Night in Georgia," "Corinna Corinna," and "Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl.
