Steve Winwood Signed Prints

Constant artistic differences and personnel changes led to
Traffic's final break-up and Winwood's release of his self-titled
first solo album in 1977. This was followed by his 1980 hit Arc
Of A Diver (lyrics by Vivian Stanshall), and Talking Back to the
Night in 1982. Both albums recorded at his home in
Gloucestershire with Winwood playing all instruments.


Back in the High LifeHe enlisted the help of a coterie of stars
to record Back in the High Life (1986) in the US, and the album
was a hit. In 1986, he topped the Billboard Hot 100 with "Higher
Love", and with this earned two Grammy Awards: for Record of the
Year and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. In his hit song "While
You See a Chance", in a stanza where he sings "And that old grey
wind is blowing and theres nothing left worth knowing," Winwood
accidentally overdubs "nothing left..." with "no one left..." The
entire track was thrown together in a relatively quick fashion,
and at one point Winwood accidentally deleted the drum track
introduction in preparation for vocals. The keyboard introduction
that he composed on the spot to replace it is now iconic.

All these albums were released on Island Records. However, at the
peak of his commercial success, Winwood moved to Virgin Records
and released Roll With It and Refugees Of The Heart. The album
Roll With It and the title track hit #1 on the album and singles
charts in the summer of 1988. He recorded another album with Jim
Capaldi released under the Traffic name, Far From Home, then
resumed his solo career with his final Virgin album Junction
Seven.



In 1994, Capaldi and Winwood reunited Traffic for a new album,
Far From Home, and a tour, including a performance at Woodstock
II Festival. The same year, Winwood appears on A Tribute To
Curtis Mayfield CD, recording Mayfield's "It's Alright". In 1995
and 1996, Winwood released "Reach for the Light" for the animated
film Balto.

ResortIn 1997, Winwood released a new album, Junction Seven,
toured the US and sang with James Taylor at the VH-1 Honors.

In 1998, Winwood joined Tito Puente, Arturo Sandoval, Ed Calle
and other musicians to form the band Latin Crossings for a
European tour, after which they split without making any
recordings. Winwood also starred in the film Blues Brothers 2000,
appearing on stage with Issac Hayes, Eric Clapton, and KoKo
Taylor at the battle of the bands competition; the band is called
the Louisiana Gator Band.

In 2003, Winwood released a new studio album, About Time, co-
produced by Johnson Somerset and engineered by George Shilling,
on his new record label, Wincraft Music.

2004 saw his 1982 song "Valerie" used by Eric Prydz in a song
called "Call on Me". It spent five weeks at #1 on the UK singles
chart. Winwood heard an early version of Prydz's remix and liked
it so much, he not only gave permission to use the song, he re-
recorded the samples for Prydz to use

In 2005, the Soundstage Performances DVD was released, featuring
his recent work from the album About Time along with his hits
including "Higher Love" and "Back in the High Life". Winwood also
performs hits from his days with Traffic (inducted into the Rock
and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004) as well as current recordings that
represent a tapestry of tastes woven after 40 years in music.

In 2005, he accepted an invitation from 2008 Grammy Award winner
Ashley Cleveland to appear on her album Men and Angels Say. This
album of rock, blues and country arrangements of well known hymns
includes "I Need Thee Every Hour" which features a vocal duet and
organ performance.

Additionally, Christina Aguilera features Winwood on one of her
songs from her 2006 record Back to Basics, called "Makes Me Wanna
Pray".


In July 2007, Winwood shared the stage with Eric Clapton, in
Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival. Among the songs they played
together were "Presence of the Lord" and "Can't Find My Way Home"
from their Blind Faith days. Winwood played several guitar leads
in a six song set. The two continued their collaboration with
three sold-out nights at Madison Square Garden in New York City
in February 2008. On 19 February 2008 Winwood and Clapton
released a collaborative EP through iTunes titled Dirty City.
Clapton and Winwood released a CD and DVD of their Madison Square
Garden shows and then toured together in the summer of 2009

A new studio album, Nine Lives, was released 29 April 2008 on
Columbia Records. The album opened at #12 on the Billboard 200
album chart, his highest US debut ever. Also in 2008, Winwood
received an honorary doctorate from the Berklee College of Music.
